Format: Paperback
I am not surprised by the lack of Amazon reviews of this book compared to other books in the Christian arena. Christians love to stockpile knowledge for themselves to better their own lives. When it comes to actively sharing that knowledge with others, however, that's often too uncomfortable. In short, Christians shy away from the topic of evangelism, hence the lack of reviews.
Yes, this is not only a great evangelism work, it's also a wonderful apologetics primer. Evangelism and apologetics are closely related. The minute you step into the arena of evangelism, you will be called upon to defend the Bible and this book is a terrific resource on both counts.
As a past Evangelism Explosion senior trainer I can attest to the effectiveness of the principles in this book. Dr. Kennedy guides the reader through a conversational process that will have you leading others to true assurance of salvation.
I now belong to a cell group church and I find it interesting that cell church writers seem offended by Dr. Kennedy's approach. I use it in conversation in the hope that I can lead people to discipleship through my cell group.
Others criticize the EE program for being too "canned" or lengthy. Dr. Kennedy addresses both of these issues in the book. Nowhere does Dr. Kennedy say that the outline has to be used in it's entirety and the same way for every person approached. The basis of EE is two simple diagnostic questions that begin a beautiful outline. How much you add or delete from the outline in the course of a conversation is limited only by the amount of time you wish to invest in the person you're dealing with.
A third criticism has to do with repentance. The EE program deals with this topic quite clearly.

Format: Paperback
"Evangelism Explosion" the book is intended to be the textbook for the Evangelism Explosion (EE) ministry's courses on how to witness and how to train others to witness. If someone simply reads the book without participating in the ministry, then it is obvious how that person could come to certain misconceptions about the approach described and the contents of the presentation.

I have participated in Evangelism Explosion, through my church, for several years: first as a student/trainee, then as a trainer, and - more recently - also as a teacher of the Level II course. I have seen many people come to know our Lord Jesus through the EE presentation, I have seen many Christians become excited about witnessing to others, and I have seen some of my trainees become trainers (and equipping more witnesses, as well as seeing souls get saved, is the true evangelism explosion).

While the presentation may seem wordy and canned at first, once a person has mastered the outline, he/she can adapt it to every witnessing opportunity. There are five major sections in the gospel presentation - Grace, Man, God, Jesus, and Faith - and both scriptures and illustrations are used to make the points in each section. Grace is emphasized first so that the person being witnessed to understands that God did all the work necessary for salvation; it's the first step in ridding people of the notion that their works have anything to do with their eternal destiny (and most unsaved people I've encountered believe just that: that they are good enough to get to heaven). If a person needs to understand what sin is and that he is a sinner, then emphasize the "Man" section. Does the person think that God, being good, would never send anyone to hell?

EE will teach you to effectively, coherently explain the Gospel to someone else. However I believe that the presentation they promote, though good, is a bit grace heavy -- by that I mean that it starts telling the evangelee about God's grace before they understand why they need it. I recommend reading "Hell's Best Kept Secret" by Ray Comfort and incorporating his ideas into the EE presentation. You lose the benefit of having a canned Gospel presentation to learn, but you gain the benefit of a presentation that will help people to understand their need for Christ.

2 of 3 people found the following review helpful By Mike Robinson on November 2, 2009
Format: Paperback
Sharing our faith is an important aspect of the Great Commission (making disciples is intertwined with witnessing: Matthew 28:19-20; 2Timothy 2:2). Kennedy furnished this significant material well ahead of other modern evangelistic works. He offers scriptural admonitions as he instructs the Christian in sharing one's faith using practical steps. This is a wonderful book on effective strategy and can be employed effectively with Comfort's and the White Horse Inns notions of proper evangelism application of the Word. These two diverse groups exhort the believer to press the law and its demands on the non-Christian as a means of softening his heart for the reception of the Gospel (effectiveness is governed and lead by Holy Spirit: John 1:12-13).
This is a wonderful resource for churches. Bible study groups, and individuals. All Christians should prayerfully read this material and seek to apply its truth (Mark 16:15; Acts 1:8; Matt. 28:19).
