The Art & Science of Soul Winning

The Art And Science of Soul Winning

By Pastor David P. Smith

Catching the Passion for Souls

Soulwinning is the most fulfilling and rewarding work that anyone can do for the kingdom of God. The spiritual thrill of leading someone personally to Jesus Christ will rejuvenate the spirit of the pastor, the deacon, the small group leader, and just about anyone who loves Jesus. Unfortunately, soulwinning has declined in many places. It is crucial that we have a revival of sharing the wonderful story of Christ’s sacrifice for our sin and the gift of Eternal Life that He offers to one and all who receive Him. This book will stir your passion for souls. Each of us needs to catch the passion for soulwinning, this book will challenge you to do it.
