More About the Author

Thanks for taking a minute to drop by my page. In my childhood days the last thing I thought I would become was an author. I had a vivid imagination, loved animals and all of creation (like snakes), and an overly active mind. I doubted my ability to put such thoughts on paper.

Now after all these years and a lot of writing--books, chapters, journal and magazine articles, and an active blog at alvinreid.com--I still think I have more to learn about the craft. But I decided years ago to take the plunge and have never regretted it.

I teach at an Evangelical seminary--Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary near Raleigh, NC--but I promise we do not teach snake handling :-). I am married (32 years now!) to the most amazing wife named Michelle. We are blessed with two great children: Josh, who is writing a book with me just now, and Hannah, who just turned 21. Both of our children are married to great young people. We have a very close family and enjoy each other a great deal.

I travel and speak a lot. Over 70 events a year, from lectures at universities to youth camps in the summer, from church events to leadership convocations. I enjoy speaking on the revitalization of Christianity and missional living (if that is a new term, buy my latest book, smile).

More than anything I am a passionate follower of Jesus Christ. My life has been changed, and I have never quite recovered :-). So my books all reflect a desire for people to know and follow Him. Blessings.

Dr. Alvin Reid, Evangelism Handbook, (Nashville: B&H Publishing Group), 2009. 460 pages reviewed.

It is unfortunate that I completed this book so early in 2010...since I do not think it is possible for any book to top it all year. I have the highest praises for Dr. Reid and this incredible resource.

As a pastor, I know that when I mention "evangelism" I get mixed responses from those I speak to. Some are incredulous that I would think my religious beliefs are the only ones that provide peace with God. Others become ashamed because they know that evangelism is a command of Scripture and they are in some manner disobedient to the command. Still others are dismissive, thinking that they already know all that there is to know on the subject (been there, got the t-shirt). However, this book is written to a fourth category...to the person who desires to understand both the why and the how of evangelism.

There is nothing about this book that fits into the "five easy steps to making disciples" category of Christian books. It is thoughtful, theological, worshipful, practical, and missional. Dr. Reid is diligent and faithful to not speak over the reader's head. He uses theological terminology at times, but always takes the time to explain it...making this book accessible for both scholars and novices.

While I would love to pick a favorite part of the book, I really cannot, since doing so would cause me to write a review close in length to the work itself. One of the engaging features of the book is its use of allusions and quotes from evangelists of different eras. Reid is at home discussing Erwin McManus, Alan Hirsch, or Roy Fish.

To many evangelism books are lacking, and might not work well with all that are into reaching the lost, but this one does. For in my library of over hundred books on evangelism, this is one of my favorites. And others also. He covers the Biblical reasons for it. The history of how it's been done. The impact of a spiritual life. He talks about reaching all the different people. I love it.

Easy to read and understand, sparks ideas in the reader, uses descriptive metaphor in places but does not do so ad nauseum. Amidst all the examples, there is a clear intention to the writing that never gets lost in the craft of writing. The author clearly has a purpose for what he's saying, is informed about his topic, and clearly communicates his passion for evangelism.

This book is great. Real clear. Real simple. This book digs out the heart of evangelism, and says this is the core. This book like most popular reads has some filler in it, some sections, or some stories, that you wonder if it could have been left out. However, despite that minor, minor technical flaw this book is wonderful and every Christian should try and read it. Let's go fishing!
