We know the radical difference the gospel of Jesus Christ makes.

And we want others to see and enjoy its benefits. In fact, we don't want them to just pray a prayer and move on to the next interesting thing. We want them to sink their roots deeply into the grace of God.

So often, though, we feel that we are inadequate to this important task-that we don't know enough or that we will offend our friends. Daniel Meyer has provided the tools you need to move forward:

  • the basics of the gospel message
  • the role of life change in our witness
  • how to present the good news

The Bible studies, application exercises and readings in this book will deepen your personal faith and equip you to minister to others with a new sense of confidence and calling.

About the Author


"Deeply informed without being tedious, challenging without being finger-pointing and helpful without being formulaic. If you love evangelism-and especially if you don't!- this is your kind of book."
- John Ortberg, Menlo Park Presbyterian Church

"I wish Witness Essentials  was required reading for every Christian serious about inviting others into the great adventure of knowing and walking with God."
- Jim Mellado, president, Willow Creek Association

"Jesus implored us to pray for workers to go into the harvest. Here is a tool that puts legs on that prayer and helps instill passion to sustain it."
- Greg Ogden, author of Discipleship Essentials

"This book will sneak up on you.... [Its] richness and range just won't let it be easily categorized. Daniel Meyer has helped us realize that being a witness is something we both do and are. He appropriately calls us to a different life if we want a different world."
- Reggie McNeal, author of The Present Future
