Evangelizology

Executive Brief:

Evangelizology developed from 30 years of the study of the Bible in areas related to evangelism. In some cases, centuries of crustaceans have developed obscuring the message of the Bible to evangelism. In other matters, it is a matter of applying doctrinal truths in the practical realm. My quest in developing these notes has been to seek to allow the one voice of the Holy Spirit to address the gospel’s message and the means by which that gospel is to be communicated.
