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.

"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?

Truly enjoy reading this book for my evangelist class. Would recommend other to purchase if you are interested in how to effectively witness to people, how to become save and reborn again to the world of Jesus Christ.

I had a copy of this from back in the 90's and lost it in moving so I've been trying to re-create what I've lost for my library. This is still one of the go-to books on evangelism for all other methods for evangelism.

It is an excellent book , especially if we are following the commands of Christ, but once someone has come to church is where the true discipleship begins , and from scripture it is not a semi forced confession but a true confession brought about by the grace of God. not in the heat of the moment.

This was awesome the first time round and even better now that I am reading it again while taking the class. A great tool for Christians who want to be obedient and follow the Great Commission. Evangelism is not just your Pastor's or Elder's job!

I loved the book. It is one of the best books that I have read on sharing your faith. There is so much information that you will have a tool for life on how to share your faith. I was amazed on how many people that are in the church for a long time could not answer the two introduction questions.

For anyone interested in spreading the gospel, this is a MUST read. I am an evangelist ([...]) and this is the book that got me started. It is easy to read and takes you through an effective way to present your faith in a non-threatening manner. I highly recommend you read this book.

It is a great book for using in an evangelism program in your church. If you read no other book on evangelism, read this one.

The world will miss Dr. D James Kennedy.
