Compelled by Joy
A Lifelong Passion For Evangelism
I was a happy teenager, content with my home, my academic success, my sporting achievements and my friendships. And I stumbled across the greatest friend of all, Jesus Christ. He is the treasure I have come to value above all else.
I was not an emotional cripple looking for a crutch. I was not a romantic looking for a cause. I was not at the bottom of the pile hoping for a leg-up. I was not looking for anything in particular. But I found treasure, and that treasure has utterly transformed my life, my goals, my lifestyle â€¦'
Michael Green shares his passion, reflections, convictions and suggestions from a lifetime of church and university missions, not to mention numerous informal encounters.
A book to provoke, stimulate and inspire, but above all fire up every Christian for the urgent task of evangelism.
