Evangelism can mean many things to many people. For some, it's something that requires special training or a calling from God. For others, it's something only done in a church building or arena. And for some, it evokes emotions of guilt and shame for failing to be a vibrant witness to unbelievers.
For more than forty years, EvanTell, Inc., an evangelism training and outreach ministry in Dallas, Texas, has focused on one mission: the gospel, clear and simple. Founded by Dr. R. Larry Moyer, EvanTell, Inc., touches millions of lives each year with evangelism materials, evangelism training, and outreach events. Now those four decades of experience in training believers to share the good news in a clear and simple fashion has been paired with the one essential tool for evangelism: God's Word. The Evangelism Study Bible provides all the tools needed for sharing the gospel in a clear, simple, and guilt-free way.
Using the highly regarded New King James Version®, The Evangelism Study Bible brings together a wide variety of resources, some never before paired with the text of Scripture. Users will benefit from:
• a brief, informative introduction to each Bible book, focusing on its contribution to evangelism
• more than 2,600 study notes pertaining to evangelism
• over 260 tips on practical issues in evangelism
• 125 in-depth articles on crucial issues
• 85 how-to features that provide hands-on advice
• 45 inspirational devotions
• easy-to-follow double-column format with explanatory notes
• helpful cross references
• biblical concordance
• full-color maps
The Evangelism Study Bible not only provides the training to explain and make clear the good news of the gospel, it also will motivate readers to evangelize out of grace rather than guilt.

My take on this Bible:
The Evangelism Study Bible is intended to make the user more comfortable with the idea of spreading the Good News of Christ. While this might sound silly I must say that I really liked the cover and color of this Bible, as someone who is partial to blue this caught my eye right away, but it was the topical information that makes this Bible perfect for anyone looking to strengthen their witnessing skills. One of my favorite features had to be the in-depth articles on crucial issues, which touch on issues that we might encounter when we are trying to share the Good News, a few that stood out for me were how to share Christ with people who don't believe in life after death,or what does the resurrection prove? The articles are placed strategically together with the scripture that they pertain to, making it easy to read what the Bible says along with what the article says. The in depth articles answer various questions and seem to cover just about any topic one might encounter. There are also  plenty of study notes, maps, a concordance and even 45 inspirational devotions included in this Bible, which makes it a useful tool for Bible study. Overall I think this Bible would make a wonderful gift for anyone looking to grow in God's word, but is especially helpful for someone who might need a bit of guidance in order to talk to others about God's word. 

A complimentary copy of this Bible was provided for review.
