The Evangelism Study Bible

From the back cover:  The Evangelism Study Bible provides all the tools you need to learn to share the gospel clearly and simply as God opens doors of opportunity.

The New King James Version takes the lyrical, poetic King James translation and updates some of the language.  It makes it easier for today's Christians to read and understand the classic translation while still retaining the feel of the original version.  I remember the first Bible I had in this translation.  It stayed a favorite of mine for many years until it became to worn for everyday use.

Among the many special features of this Bible are:

  • Introductions to each book that help the reader to focus on the evangelism aspect of that particular book.
  • Over 2,600 study notes help the reader to understand the passages.  At the same time they also help to point out the evangelism aspects of the passage.
  • Tips for how to build your evangelism skill set so you become more comfortable with sharing the gospel.
  • Detailed articles that explain the various parts of evangelism such as apologetics.
  • Additional how-to articles to assist with developing your evangelical skills.
  • Devotions to help your relationship with Christ to grow.
  • Other features that appear in other study Bibles such as maps and cross-references.
An example of an illustration from Galatians.
I found many of the articles to be either a great reminder or a good way to see how evangelism permeates the Bible.  Reading this study Bible helps to keep the reader focused on how important it is to practice evangelism every day.  Most Christians know the role of evangelism but sometimes need a reminder.  The Evangelism Study Bible provides that extra boost to keep us on track.

I strongly recommend getting this Bible.

The copy I received for review was supplied by Kregel Publications in exchange for an honest review.
