Transforming Evangelism

Title of book or publication
Transforming Evangelism
Author(s)
David Gortner
Publisher
Church Publishing
Month and Year of Publication
2007
Description or summary
This book anticipated much of the reawakening now stirring the Episcopal Church, at the heart of what Presiding Bishop Curry has called “The Jesus Movement.” Gortner is passionate about reclaiming and properly redefining evangelism that is rooted in joy and wonder at God’s great love, trust that God is already at work in all people’s lives, eagerness to hear others’ stories and share our own stories, and an everyday ease in speaking of the God of Life and “naming the Holy” at work in people’s lives. When people use the tools and study the examples provided in this book, they soon learn that people really are interested in talking about their lives and sharing matters of the heart — and that people are open to hearing about our lives and the ways we have experienced God’s grace.

A Journey with John: The 50 Day Bible Challenge
Author(s)
Marek P. Zabriskie
Publisher
Forward Movement
Year of Publication
2016
Description or summary
The Gospel of John starts with poetry and moves through the great story of Jesus’ ministry, death, and resurrection with literary flair and deeply theological underpinnings. John focuses on Jesus’ last years of life—his public ministry and “signs” —what this gospel calls miracles. Join A Journey with John with fifty days of scripture, meditations, and prayers written by dynamic spiritual leaders from across the United States and around the world. A Journey with John is part of the 50 Day Bible series, which includes Matthew, Mark, and Luke, and is an extension of The Bible Challenge, a global initiative to encourage daily engagement with the Word of God. Edited by Marek P. Zabriskie
