Are you struggling to find resources that are appropriate for evangelism and follow-up work? Perhaps this booklet may help. It is developed around the Apostle Paul’s experience and preaching in Athens but draws helpful parallels with today and a largely secular society.

The writer seeks to establish the truth that there is a God, One who is near, and One who can be known. He presents God as the creator and sustainer of all things, One who hates sin and who will judge sin in all of us. Arguing that man is more than a mere extension of the animal kingdom, the writer shows that we can only really ‘find our chief joys in knowing and serving him [God]’. What God wants, continues BENFOLD, is ‘a change of mind that also changes our behaviour’.

Bearing in mind the author’s use of the NIV throughout, this is, nevertheless, a well produced and carefully argued presentation of the gospel. GARY BENFOLD’s thirty-five page booklet could be a substantial tool with which to evangelise the lost.
