Hi Everyone,
I have spent many hundreds of hours editing and updating the chapters of my book “Evangelism: Strategies From Heaven In The War For Souls” ready for a second edition re-print.
You can access the chapters here: http://old.esisite.comfree-chapter
There are still some other chapters to upload.  These will be uploaded in the next week or so.
Please enjoy these undated chapters, and distribute them as widely as possible.
Jesus could come back any day now, so there is an urgent need to get this information out!
Every blessing
Julian

Hey just to encourage u bud!
I know a lot of people are giving out www.biblein11.com cards, and I thought “It would be nice to know how God is using them.”
Well, today I received my answer!
Two people I had given www.biblein11.com cards to some time ago came back to me this week saying that they had watched the gospel video …

Hi everyone
I have been thinking a lot about how pseudo converts, people are attend church regularly but who are not truly saved,  and their negative influence on our efforts to evangelise the world.

The following email arrived from my good friend in Tauranga, Alan.
Alan is getting on in years, but his enthusiasm and love for the Lord through evangelism is growing by the day.   I trust you enjoy his brief email to me about his evangelism efforts as much as I did.

Hi everyone,
I was speaking with someone in the Anglican Church recently and they were telling me how the upper leadership of their denomination had lost confidence in the gospel.
These leaders wanted to know how they could regain their confidence and bring “the power of the gospel” (Romans 1:16) back into the Anglican Church.
Well, in one of the chapters of my book I discuss the issue of “loss of confidence in the gospel” and how this happens.  To read the chapter, please  click here

Oasis Church in Napier New Zealand has become a world first!
It’s the first church in the world (as far as I know) who has committed itself to making evangelism its priority.
By this I mean that ALL the leadership of the Church have published the fact that they want to lead the way in personal evangelism, and they want to be accountable for the same.
That is to say, the leaders in this church are leading by example in personal evangelism and have advertised they they earnestly desire to see all their church members …

Hi everyone,
I have been thinking.
Is the mission of the Church to win the world to Christ or evangelise the world?
By “mission” I mean the main thing, the ultimate outcome of all our Church activity: camps, conferences, sermons, studies, DVDs, radio and TV shows, social action, worship, prayer, and so on.
By ‘winning the world’ I mean that everyone on the earth is converted to Christ.
By ‘evangelising the world’ I mean that everyone on the earth hears and understands the gospel, delivered with love and grace, at least once, leaving the results …

Hi everyone,
Today I was in a shopping centre.  A young lady recognised me and smiling she said “hey, that’s him!” to her friend.
Naturally, I went over to see what the all the fuss was about.
It turned out that Naomi (on the right) worked in one of the shops in the mall, and I had given her one of the TWO RIGHT ANSWER cards a few months ago when I purchased something at her shop.
She went home, and heard the gospel via www.biblein11.com.
The Holy Spirit convicted her.
She then phoned a friend who …

Hi everyone
I just received the email below from Brent.  Many of you have been praying for him.  He is in a church of 4000.
————————————————-
Thank you so much for the encouraging email.
Well my vision for evangelism in the USA has begun!
I met with my pastor today and it went great.
He was very interested and not surprising but our church leadership has been talking about this very thing for the past 6 weeks.
How cool is God!?
He even said that they had discussed taking time out of their schedules for personal evangelism because they …

Hi everyone,
Please pray for Brent, the Paediatrician in Texas, who God has really touched through reading my book.  
He is taking his Life Group through the 12 lost truths.

Tonight he is sharing his personal journey in evangelism using power point slides, and the first lost truth, which is about the Biblical definition of evangelism.
At the end of the Life Group, after discussion about his journey and the …

Yesterday I received a text from a pastor friend of mine (Bruce Collingwood from Oasis Church in Napier, pictured below) who is sharing the gospel via the video at www.biblein11.com.  He uses this video as part of his conversation with strangers who come in off the street to talk with him in his office.  His church also has a cafe.

Hi everyone,
Recently this email arrived in my inbox from a guy called Sean. It just shows how important it is to leave these cards around in public places….
——————————–
I was having a bad day, and I was walking about in Hamilton (a city in New Zealand)  Gardens to take a breather.
In the toilet there, I spotted this card placed neatly on the sink, just in front of the mirror
It read “Born, Live and Die”
This definitely piqued my curiosity.
I am a Christian, but could not resist taking the card, and checking …

Recently, I had an interesting and healthy conversation with a pastor which I want to share with you.
This is important. Really important. Actually, of supreme importance.

He was explaining how his church had new people come along as a result of better advertising,  better preaching, better worship, a new building, and community outreach initiatives (social action).
Some of the people who came (he said) were non-Christians, some were from other churches.
“So”, he said (smiling), “we are doing really well with evangelism.”
Naturally, I quizzed him about what he said.  I asked him what he …
