The Pastor-Evangelist Reviews
This book is a collection of articles by pastors who believe that the pastorate should be lead by men who not only fulfill the responsibilities to the members of the church, but also believe in the biblical mandate to seek after those who are outside of the church. The book was published because Greenway saw that the world needs Christ and God has chosen the church as the chief way to win sinners. He also gives examples of practical ways to involve the church in evangelism. Finally, the biggest reason for the book was to look at the biblical demands required of a pastor. This book had some important insights and practical advice for the Western church. I enjoyed the sections when some of these godly men shared stories of God’s faithfulness and power. It is amazing when God uses a man like Harry Reeder III to go into a church that the experts say should be closed to cut losses. Then through prayer and following biblical patterns, the church begins to grow and in the case of his church, elders that had been putting on a fake facade became true believers. Quote from the bookUnbelievers in the pew must hear this gospel loud and clear. If they do not hear it and go home accursed, it is the church and then preacher who, according to Ezekiel and Paul, have blood on their hands (Ezek. 33:1-9; Acts 20:26-27) (60)
A few of the chapters in this book were helpful and good (particularly "Hospitality Evangelism"), but most of them were basically overly detailed and rather dated how-to's.
