Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Tell the Truth fills a huge void in the literature on the subject of evangelism - sharing the good news of Jesus Christ with others. Most books on evangelism focus on techniques and methods. Metzger on the other focuses primarily on developing a theology of evangelism. Metzger does a phenomenal job of tackling the question: What truth or key truths are essential to the gospel message? After spending time on the key elements of doctrinal truth of our message (understanding the gospel) - Metzger gives abundant examples of how to share the truth/s of the gospel message with others.

In this thorough handbook on evangelism Metzger addresses the following issues with great theological depth, biblical support and commentary, and practical applications: The importance of doctrine and theology in evangelism; Distinguishing our role from God's role in evangelism; Man-centered verses God-centered methods in evangelism; The five primary points of evangelism; Myths and facts about God's grace; God's sovereignty and our responsibility; How worship is the motivation for evangelism; Challenges for evangelism amid pluralism; How to communicate the gospel personally with different types of people; and how to bloom with the gospel where you are planted.

This book also contains a plethora of resources for training material on every aspect of evangelism including: How to prepare your testimony; How to develop a theological methodology of evangelism; How to say what you mean; How to ask good questions; Doing friendship evangelism; Questions non-Christians ask; Sharing the gospel using stories; and many other helpful templates, Charts, outlines, guides, questions to ask, and so forth.

I am 73 still fishing for men, this is the very best book on telling the gospel to a lost world I have ever read. Dispels the concept of cheap grace so prevalent today. A must read if you want to effectively spread the whole gospel of Jesus Christ.

Excellent explanation of evangelism! I am often timid to share the good news with others. This book helped me remember what it is all about and that I have nothing to fear. This also gave me a more correct view of who God is and His grace and truth.

Format: Paperback
Tell the Truth is a great one-stop book on evangelism. Will Metzger breaks it into three sections: on the gospel, the lost, and the Christian witnessing - "the whole gospel, to the whole person, by whole people." In the first section, he evaluates faulty gospel presentations ("the gospel reduced"), including man-centered messages ("here's how you can have a better life..." and the minimizing of sin. He explains how the backdrop of God's holiness and His law are essential to an understanding of sin, without which the "good news" isn't meaningful at all.

In the second section, he explains how evangelizing is meant to impact the mind, the emotions and the will ("the whole person"). Some evangelistic techniques focus on the will, getting someone to "make a decision for Christ." This is important, but it is only one part of the equation. Others focus on an emotional experience, and try to create them with music and manipulation. Metzger explains how a true gospel response affects the whole person, not just a single part of them.

The last section deals with our part: sharing the message. It includes lots of tips for communicating with people, how to start conversations and lead them toward the Gospel, how to deal with fear, the importance of prayer, and the end goal of making disciples.

This is a helpful book. It exposes bad evangelistic techniques and offers a solid way forward. It is stirring to read - I was convicted of the need to evangelize more regularly. I've thought through evangelism pretty thoroughly (after reading

This book is great reference and a challege to ALL CHRISTIANS to read the Bible and approach evangelism for the Biblical truth.

Will Metzger tells it like it is...no half-truths here. The Church is called to task on preaching the biblical Gospel of its founder...Jesus Christ.

It has loads of illustrations a reusable stuff for teaching in the Appendix.

There will come many in the later (today) that will desire a message to tickle the ear...your best life now...sound familiar? Have you heard the false gospel? Can you tell the difference? Remember that there "are" wolves (false teachers) in this day that will fleece many save the elect.
This book is hard to put down. So much meat cut up and served in this book.

You cannot go wrong buying this book. I own the paper and Kindle versions. The Kindle version is great to read and mark up to use in presentations for teaching evangelism.
You can cut and paste your notes and book references right from the Kindle page in a PC.

I have read tomes of pages about evangelism...this book is now top on my shelf!
