Book: Out of the Comfort Zone by George Verwer

In this book George Verwer reflects on his forty-three years as leader of Operation Mobilization to talk straight about what he believes is needed in missions for the twenty-first century.

This is a humble and hard-hitting approach at the same time. He doesn’t pull any punches in his heart’s cry for a ‘grace-awakened’ approach to mission, and wants to cut through any superficial ‘spirituality’ that may be lurking inside you.

He shows how many Christians have the feeling that someone else will take care of it and have a vague, detached and unrealistic attitude to what mission is about. This book will challenge you to step out of your comfort zone and adjust your view of how missionary work is being done.

George Verwer is known throughout the world as a motivator and mobilizer. Out of the Comfort Zone should only be read by those who are willing to accept God’s grace, catch His vision and respond with action in the world of mission.

Book: Tell Someone (You Can Share the Good News) by Greg Laurie

The church of today has a choice: either we evangelize or we fossilize. Show me a church that doesn’t have a constant flow of new believers coming in, and I will show you a church that is stagnating. With the church of the first century, “each day the Lord added to their fellowship those who were being saved” (Acts 2:47).

If you are like me, at some point in your past or even the present you’ve probably felt a bit of uncertainty about how to effectively share the “good news” of the Bible’s redemptive message. Understand, this book by pastor and author Greg Laurie is not written to condemn you if you have not engaged others with the gospel message. This book is written to encourage and inspire you.

Taken from the life and witness of Jesus, and tested over Greg’s forty years of ministry, these ideas are intended to mobilize every person in the church to “Tell Someone” about Jesus Christ. If you’ve struggled with evangelism then this book give you the tools you need to overcome some of the obstacles you face in sharing the gospel message. Personally I’ve appreciated the down to earth advice found in this book because it is grounded in the overriding principle of love.
