On Wednesday we introduced you to Nancy Golden and her course on Loving your neighbors to Christ at BeaDisciple.com
In the book The Second Greatest Commandment Meets the Great Commission – How to Love Your Neighbors to Christ, you will learn about why you should evangelize and how to go about it, with plenty of examples and encouragement along the way. You won’t find a huge, scholarly tome here – but an easy to read book that is intentionally not very long.
We think you will find it very convenient to fit this study into even the busiest of schedules, yet gain the tools you need to approach evangelism with joy and confidence.
Eight chapters lend itself well to an eight-week group study but it can also be read individually at a more rapid pace or adjusted to fit into a seminar format. The discussion questions are designed to give you ideas on how to share your faith and the appendix provides real, thought-provoking stories to inspire you, as you begin your own journey of reaching out to others.
I hope you find this book a blessing as you strive to share God’s incredible grace through His Son Jesus Christ with those who like each of us, are in desperate need of our Savior!
What People are Saying:
“It [The Second Greatest Commandment Meets the Great Commission] is balanced, practical, and clearly communicated.” — Steve Niermann, Texas
“The prospect of sharing our faith—evangelism—can be daunting for many of us. In her book “The Second Greatest Commandment Meets The Great Commission,” Nancy Golden reminds us of our responsibility to share the good news of Jesus with others and offers practical suggestions for real word application. Nancy’s book is a great reminder that sharing our faith is really just about using the gifts God has given us to reach people for Christ—it is mostly about being ourselves and letting the Holy Spirit do the work. I know that you will be blessed by Nancy’s writing and, even more importantly, that this book will help you to be a blessing to others.” — John Crews / Executive Pastor, The Heartland Church, Carrollton, Texas
“We are told that The Second Greatest Commandment is to “love our neighbors as ourselves,” but we rarely associate this commandment with sharing the Gospel. This study shows the believer how “loving our neighbor” can become our greatest evangelism tool.” — Chris Bovinich / President, Live Like Josh Foundation
“I appreciate Nancy Golden’s unique blend of biblical scholarship and personal experience, which both enlightens the mind and warms the heart; what a refreshing book on the topic of evangelism! The Second Greatest Commandment Meets the Great Commission restores evangelism to its rightful place in our minds as disciples of Christ and does so clearly and effectively. Christ never meant evangelism to be approached with fear, trembling, and the gnashing of teeth, but as Nancy so cleverly writes, Have fun—give yourself permission to enjoy yourself—and your friends will too. Evangelism is easy, just love your neighbor. I would certainly use this book for a Wednesday night Bible study or a seminar on evangelism. I’m confident that it will be a blessing to many a congregation.” —Chad Burton / Senior Pastor, Living Word Global Church
