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.

"Biblical, Spiritual, Intentional, Missional!"

"In Matthew 5, Jesus calls believers the salt of the earth and light of the world. Indeed, we must reach out to tell others His story of sacrifice and grace so glory is given to God throughout our communities and the entire planet.

Evangelism Handbook is a thorough guide to the daily ministry of sharing Christ. Writer and professor Alvin Reid is particularly concerned about how the Western Church is practicing evangelism--its failure to reach the hardcore unchurched and its trend of losing young people faster than it can win them.

With all of that in mind, Reid organizes his research and experience in effective modern evangelism into four clear and actionable categories: Biblical (with chapters on Jesus, Paul, and evangelism in Acts), Spiritual (the work of the Spirit, the power of prayer and other disciplines), Intentional (leadership, creativity, worship), and Missional (church planting, reaching the unchurched)." (From the B&H Publishing Group Website) One of BaptistMessenger.Com's Editor's Picks for 2009!

About the Author: Alvin Reid is associate dean of Proclamation Studies, professor of Evangelism, and Bailey Smith Chair of Evangelism at Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary in Wake Forest, North Carolina.

My Thoughts About the Book: The book EVANGELISM Handbook, is indeed "Biblical, Spiritual, Intentional, Missional," Informational, Encouraging, and Edifying. The author neatly breaks the book down into four main parts, those being; Part 1 Biblical, Part 2 Spiritual Resources, Part 3 Intentional, and finally Part 4 Missional. He then effectively provides the reader Biblically Centered, helpful and practical insights that somehow relates to all four areas.

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!

Practical and straightforward, this handbook is ideal! Required reading for a ministerial class, it would also be perfect for developing small group curriculum, individual study and enrichment. Reid shows his passion for evangelism in his writing. Filled with food for thought, this is a great addition to any Christian library, pubic or private.
