Ordinary Disciples in Extraordinary Evangelism

Pub Date 12 Dec 2017
I am reviewing a copy of The Power Of the 72 Through InterVarsity Press and Netgalley:
The Power Of The 72 offers a new insight on the 72 that is talked about in the book of Luke!
This book reminds us that we are one of the 72. This book tells us too that Evangelism comes from our relationship with God! In the gospel of Luke the 72 lived with and for the poor, we are called to do the same.
The Call Of The 72 wasn’t merely evangelists doing Evangelism. The 72 were trained to do Evangelism among the poor. Jesus trained the The 72 to do Evangelism under crushing pressure. He trained them in a methodical and intentional way.
Jesus trained the 72 in how God brings people to Faith and as one of the 72 we are called to bring others to faith.
The ministry of the 72 is supernatural so Jesus instructs them how to pray for their ministry. In this book we are reminded to pray daily. The 72 were trained for spiritual friendships. The 72 are trained for Evangelism in word and in deed. The lifestyle of the 72 is both great joy, and great pain.
I give The Power Of The 72 five out of five stars!
