Some good examples and resources for pre-evangelism:

Chuck Missler's Koinonia House:
CLICK ON: http://www.khouse.org , scroll down to the box that says "Visit Our STORE" (near the bottom left of the page) and click on it. On the left side of the page that comes up under the title "BROWSE", click on "briefing packs". One the page that comes up are listed various tape series "briefing packs". The first one titled "Basic Bible Studies" has a briefing pack named "Feasts of Israel", which is an excellent study of the Jewish Holy Days of Leviticus 23 from a prophetic point of view.

Scroll down a little more and you come to "Prophetic Updates" which is a whole series of excellent pre-evangelistic prophetic tape series.

Beneath this series is the "Cosmic Codes" series, and beneath this is the "Creator" series, both of which are excellent for refuting evolutionary theory. To read some excellent excerpts from Chuck Missler's book "Creator Beyond Space and Time, http://www.unityinchrist.com/preevangelism/thecreator.htm. (These short excerpts themselves are excellent in refuting evolutionary theory in a way science professors would find difficult to deal with.)"

Fred Heeren's :

Realize, that almost any properly explained expository study on second coming/Millennial kingdom-age prophecies can be good pre-evangelism harvesting tools. The fields are white for harvest, just like Jesus told us they would be. Paul said we are Ambassadors for Christ, representing both Jesus and the Kingdom of God, our heavenly country from above. Pre-evangelism is one of our key harvesting tools which the Lord has given us, and this tool is mostly unused in the very parts of the world where it could prove most effective, in the educated, technological nations of the world.

Here are two articles that prove God's Word and demonstrate where we are in the grand scheme of things in God's plan spelled out in advance through Bible prophecy: (click on each to access them. Print them up, put your church address on the end page of each, distribute them and pray earnestly for results--prayer must accompany the preaching of the gospel for it to succeed.)

  1. The Second Coming of Jesus Christ, an expository study of Luke 21:10-28.

  2. Prophecied Gentile World Empires to the 2nd Coming of Christ.

"For further reading on this subject you may wish to purchase these two books. First, "The Second Coming", by John MacArthur, Jr. With the year 2000 upon us, it's understandable that Christians should wonder and hope--could Jesus be returning? Pastor MacArthur explores this possibility, taking a careful, exegetical look at Jesus' words in Matthew 24 and 25. Cautioning against trying to guess the day or hour, he encourages believers everywhere to pray, "Come, Lord Jesus!" 288 pages, hardcover from Crossway Books. Available online from http://www.Christianbook.com or try http://www.amazon.com . The other book is "The Last Days According to Jesus", by R.C. Sproul. In his first book on eschatology, Sproul answers critics--like Bertrand Russell--by focussing on what Jesus himself taught about the last days and the timing of his return. The trusted theologian addresses such questions as: Who is the antichrist? What generation will witness the end? and When is the millennium? His answers may surprise you! 192 pages, hardcover from Baker. Available online from http://www.Christianbook.com or try http://www.amazon.com .

Another new book by John MacArthur that is timely after September 11th is "Terrorism, Jihad and the Bible". MacArthur uses his extensive knowledge of the Bible and the history of the Middle East to answer definitive questions about the age-old conflict between the three faiths originating in the Middle East...He traces the roots of violence in Islam, pointing to both history and passages from the Koran...This book is also available online athttp://www.Christianbook.com or try http://www.amazon.com .

Herbert Armstrong's

  1. "The Wonderful World Tomorrow, What It Will Be Like"
  2. "The Book of Revelation"
  3. "Who Is the Beast"

[If you are genuinely interested in researching Mr. Armstrong's technique and it's relevance in modern-day pre-evangelism, the Worldwide Church of God may be willing to provide you with a copy or photocopy of the above literature from their archives if your are a minister or leader of a Christian fellowship. Write: The Worldwide Church of God, 300 West Green Street, Pasadena, CA 91123. I would try addressing my request to Mr. Tkach, and explain why you need a copy of these out-of-print booklets.]
