Inspired by a chapter on the history of evangelism in Delos Miles’s book, Introduction to Evangelism, he set out to write a longer, fuller treatment of the subject. The book was written primarily for ministry students in colleges and seminaries in North America.

Christians have traditionally identified him with John the Apostle, John of Patmos, or John the Presbyter, although this has been disputed by modern scholars. The Gospel of John refers to an otherwise unnamed "disciple whom Jesus loved", who "bore witness to and wrote" the Gospel's message.

Dr. Terry's book is insightful and easy to read. I had the privilege of studying under him in the fall of 1996 at Southern Baptist Theological Seminary. He was a great teacher. I was aware of this book back then but never had the desire to read it until now.

Anyone interested in evangelism and how it's been done through the centuries is bound to enjoy this easy-to-read walk through the history of faith-sharing from Jesus' day to the present. I highly recommend it. :)

There is much to learn from the history of the early church. From Pentecost to today, the church is full of an interesting cast of characters who were given a message from God and, though rejected by their contemporaries, stayed true to the message and have had their stories recorded in this book. Terry's eloquent presentation brings together the men who preached and their impact on the world in a chronological work of academic excelence.

I really enjoyed this book. It was easy to read and not so detailed that it put you to sleep. Great Book!

This book is good for someone just entering the world of church history and evengelism. It is very easy to read and is a ready reference for some of those hard to remember periods in church history. The book rightly begins with our model for evangelism, the living Son of God, Jesus Christ. It then proceeds to follow evangelistic history from Christ forward. The first twelve chapters provide the historic background of evangelism. The last three chapters discuss more recent developments; youth, personal and media forms of evangelism.
One of the most helpful features was the inclusion of study questions at the end of each chapter. This feature is especially helpful for a neophyte evangelist attempting to remember pertinent information.
The last chapter of the book is more of a criticism of televangelists than anything else. The final study question on the last page of the book reads: "What are the problems with television evangelism?"(210) Granted, there are numerous problems with television evangelism, but prior to this final chapter Terry had maintained a more upbeat approach. He broke from the form he used during the first 14 chapters when he wrote this final chapter. While the chapter is important, I would not have placed it as the final chapter in this book nor would I have broken from the form I had established in the previous 14 chapters.
This book is a good place to start for those interested in evangelism and its place in church history. Although no bibliography is present, footnotes are included for those desiring more depth of study. I will keep this book in my library as a ready and easily accessible reference.
