Soul Winning Made Simple

The word evangelism can conjure up a variety of images and thoughts ranging from world missions to flashy televangelists. Many faithful church members would answer, “Evangelism? Oh, that’s something our preacher does on Sunday morning.” BY DUDLEY RUTHERFORD Well, yes . . . and no.
