From the Back Cover
How many souls have you won to Christ? How many are still walking with the Lord? All, some, a few?
The facts are:
* Evangelical success is at an all–time low.
* We're producing more backsliders than true converts.
* The fall–away rate––from large crusades to local churches––is between 80–90 %.
Why are so many unbelievers turning away from the message of the gospel? Doesn't the Bible tell us how to bring sinners to true repentance? If so, where have we missed it? The answer may surprise you.
One hundred years ago, Satan buried the crucial key needed to unlock the unbeliever's heart. Now Ray Comfort boldly breaks away from modern tradition and calls for a return to biblical evangelism.
If you're experiencing evangelical frustration over lost souls, unrepentant sinners, and backslidden "believers," then look no further. This radical approach could be the missing dimension needed to win our generation to Christ.
About the Author
Ray Comfort, a native New Zealander, began his ministry with a burden for his lost friends. After attending the funeral of a fifth friend who had died from a drug overdose, Ray published an eight page pamphlet called My Friends Are Dying. This pamphlet gained substantial publicity and was later expanded to a paperback book. As a result, Ray received many opportunities to speak to youth about the ultimate answer to the drug problem–Jesus Christ.
Shortly after this, Ray began praying for an opportunity to share his faith publicly. He soon learned his hometown, Christchurch, had recently legalized public speaking in the local square. Ray began preaching the gospel outdoors, and this became the daily focus of his ministry.
Ray has written more than 35 books and spoken at almost 700 churches. His ministry has included pastoring a church, hosting a Christian radio program, writing a newspaper column called Words of Comfort, and serving as a regular platform speaker at Southern Baptist State Conferences.
Ray lives in Bellflower, California, with his wife, Sue, and their three children.

Sin is a dirty word in the 21st century and it is something that makes people feel bad, guilty or just plain uncomfortable. And that’s exactly the point. Why do you feel something is wrong? Because no one can deny the objective sense of right and wrong written on their conscience. Hell’s Best Kept Secret shows the reader how God’s Law is exactly the thing people need to be aware of so that they will be convicted of their sin and turn to The Lord.
Ray Comfort equips you by first giving a clear and persuasive look at what the Bible actually says and then reveals why modern strategies to “convert” people have failed: because they have strayed away from the Bible and thus only created more backsliders. After elucidating this fundamental principle, Comfort then details strategies for evangelism. Of course, those who do not know The Lord are never enemies or targets to be vanquished but future potential allies. Hence, Comfort describes not only how to approach people by providing specific strategies, but also details how different types of individuals will require different approaches. The appendix contains commonly asked questions as it pertains to difficult areas in evangelism. What you walk away with is a working knowledge of what not to do, what to do, why it works, how it works, and when to engage specific evangelism strategies based on who you are speaking to.
Hell’s Best Kept Secret does what any towering pillar of Biblical illumination does: it brings us directly back to God’s Word when time and culture have nudged us away from timeless Biblical truth. This book is a refreshing and inspiring breath of theological imagination that will animate you in your Bible study, encourage you in your sermons, and equip you with strategies to evangelize effectively. Ultimately, if you seek to be used as a vehicle to convict hearts and minds for Christ, then you absolutely must read this book, treasure it, and then tell all your friends about it.
