With non-Christians

These global difficulties give us as Christians the chance to give a reason for the hope that we have (1 Pet 3:15). There are many evangelistic resources that you can use, but these five are the ones we’d particularly commend to you.

If I Were God, I’d End All the Pain (by John Dickson) — Can we still believe in God in the face of all the suffering and pain in the world? Why doesn’t he do something? This short book looks honestly at these questions and provides some compelling answers. It covers briefly the alternative explanations for suffering provided by Hinduism, Buddhism, Islam and Atheism, then turns to what the Bible itself says about God, justice and suffering.

Hope Beyond Cure (by David McDonald) — Sharing his very personal story of being faced with a terminal cancer diagnosis, David shares the hope that he finds in the message of the Bible. God has used this book in extraordinary ways to bring many people face-to-face with the hope found in Jesus.

The Essential Jesus (Luke’s Gospel) — This inexpensive book is a powerful combination of two evangelistic resources: Two Ways to Live and the Gospel of Luke. It introduces readers to Jesus—his life, teaching, death and resurrection—but also provides enough of the biblical context to understand what Jesus came to do.

At a Time Like This (by Simon Manchester) — Sadly, many people will be impacted by the death of someone they know through this current pandemic. Adapted from his vast experience of delivering sermons at funerals, Simon Manchester has written this booklet for those whose grief may cause them to think about what is beyond this life.

Naked God (by Martin Ayers) — Looking for a book that persuasively explains and argues for the Christian faith? This book is it. Former lawyer Martin Ayers provides a compelling case for trusting in Jesus.
