Give Me a "J"
By Arthur Blessit
Jeff's personal review: This is the best book I've read on witnessing. In this book Arthur shares a lot of his past experiences of sharing the gospel around the world which makes for exciting reading. Unfortunately, a lot of the evangelism today has gotten away from just simply giving Jesus to the people. Arthur does a good job of always getting the focus of evangelism back on Jesus and leading people to receive Him as their personal Savior and Lord. There are a lot of excellent tips on how to reach people for Jesus in this book and I highly recommend it.
Sharing Jesus Effectively
