Product Description

From the Back Cover

How many souls have you won to Christ? How many are still walking with the Lord? All, some, a few?The facts are: * Evangelical success is at an all-time low.* We're producing more backsliders than true converts.* The fall-away rate--from large crusades to local churches--is between 80-90 %.Why are so many unbelievers turning away from the message of the gospel? Doesn't the Bible tell us how to bring sinners to true repentance? If so, where have we missed it? The answer may surprise you.One hundred years ago, Satan buried the crucial key needed to unlock the unbeliever's heart. Now Ray Comfort boldly breaks away from modern tradition and calls for a return to biblical evangelism.If you're experiencing evangelical frustration over lost souls, unrepentant sinners, and backslidden "believers," then look no further. This radical approach could be the missing dimension needed to win our generation to Christ.

About the Author

Ray Comfort is the Founder/President/CEO of Living Waters Publications. After relocating from New Zealand to Southern California in the late 1980s, Ray introduced a long line of pastors and churches to a biblical teaching which he called Hell's Best Kept Secret. The positive and enthusiastic response that followed took Ray s Living Waters Publications ministry to a whole new level. From humble beginnings, LWP has become an internationally recognized ministry, reaching the lost and equipping Christians with every necessary resource to fulfill the great commission. Ray Comfort is the co-host (with Kirk Cameron) of the award-winning television program "The Way of the Master," which airs in 123 countries around the world. Ray is a best-selling author of more than 70 books. He and his wife, Sue, live in Southern California, where they have three grown children.

Format: Paperback
The author builds his case that the reason why so many new converts (he actually says 80-90% of converts from crusades) fall away from their new faith is that they were not told the whole counsel of God as to why they should become Christians. They were told that they should try Christianity because it will make their lives better; it will help them achieve peace and have a happier marriage and all the rest. But they weren't told what the Bible teaches: that the only way to escape the wrath to come is to embrace Christ who will take their punishment for them. So when things don't go the way they had hoped, they are disillusioned and embittered toward Christianity for not delivering what was promised. Telling people that they stand condemned before the Law of God is not pleasant, but that is the only way people will see their need for a Saviour.

This book is better that I thought it would be. It is thought provoking and convicting (for me anyways) as it goes beyond teaching the function of the Biblical Law, to speaking to Christians who are not demonstrating a heart for the lost by engaging in personal evangelism. We have a thousand excuses, don't we, for not getting into the game as it were. The reasons can be pretty strong and deep rooted, and should drive people such as myself to my knees in prayer for deliverance from my fear and inactivity.

America needs a "Great Awaekening" but before we get a great awaekening we are going get a rude awaekening. I read this book and applied some of these truths into the life of my church and the results have been great. We taught a class using this book as the foundation. This book is full of truth and will blow much of the puke-inducing "life enhancement" message of today out of the water. The message that is preached by many churches and by most TV Evangilists in our day is a counterfit gospel and therefore must produce conterfit converts. The "Seeker Sensitive" message has done little but produce a generation of sensitive seekers. Chritianity by it's very nature should be more about Christ than it is about the people being preached to. Get this book ... read it and apply it ... and watch your converts stay saved ... that way we can get on with the job of seeing more saved and spend less time keeping the saved saved thru endless, fruitless hours of counceling.
Thanks Ray for teaching us how to preach the Gospel the way it was and should be preached.

Satan does not want you to read this book! Though it has been out for a decade, it has really been continually suppressed by the Devil. Not anymore! With the Internet as a resource, as long as there are brothers like myself who are convicted of God's word, I will make sure that this secret is no longer kept hidden!
After four years of frustration in Campus Crusade using the Four Spiritual Laws to share the Gospel, I was greatly delighted to find Ray Comfort's audio message at his web site (raycomfort.com)! The issues I had seen in conversions were never dealt with since I became active in evangelism. No one wanted to touch it, everyone just encouraged me to continue sharing "God is love", "He offers a wonderful plan for you", and "make a decision for Christ!". But I knew what I saw. A lot of ppl were praying to receive Christ, but none of them were keeping in the faith (followup didn't work either). And then Ray Comfort hit the nail right on the head! I felt God placing an urgency in my heart to research this message and check it to Scripture so I ordered the book, video, whatever I could afford. And I can say that everything is Biblical... in fact, Ray Comfort stands on a cloud of witnesses that have gone before him with the same message!
John Wesley, the renown and highly successful open air preacher wrote to a young colleague of his, "Preace 90% law, 10% grace!" Martin Luther taught, "The first duty of the Gospel preacher is to declare God's law and show the nature of sin." In "Hell's Best Kept Secret", Ray Comfort has not invented a brand new concept, but he has rediscovered a secret to reaching the lost that has been suppressed by Satan in the last 100 years. He writes with conviction, Biblical insight, and wit!

Format: Paperback
This book has revolutionized the way I approach evangelism. Ray Comfort comprehensively outlines the Biblical approach to evangelism, using God's law to bring people to realize that they are sinners before God and will face judgement because of their disobedience (such through the ten commandments). It seriously addresses the modern gospel preaching problem where we talk about God's love but not sin, which produces so called "back sliders" in church... people who haven't made a concious decision to turn from their sin and live for Jesus. At the same time Ray explains and gives a balanced view on the different approaches on evangelism, such as lifestyle and such and their place, but importantly that we need to bring sinners to understand that they already are under God's judgement and need to turn to Him.
If you are a church leader, are an evangelist, or just obeying God's commandment to preach the gospel, you should definitely read this book! I've ordered ~120 copies (60 of this, 60 of another of his books) and given them free to people at my church retreat because it is really that good. (...)
