A guide to giving evangelistic talks by one of Australia's most experienced evangelists
- Publisher

In this book, John Chapman passes on the skills of his craft. He explains how telling people the gospel of Jesus Christ requires us to be servants of the Word itself and servants of the people. Were not our hearts burning within us while he talked with us on the road and opened the Scriptures to us? (Luke 24:32) Anyone who explains the good news of Jesus Christ to others hopes that this will be the result - that hearts will be set on fire by the message, and that repentance and faith will follow. In this book, which is the fruit of his 40 years experience as an evangelist, John Chapman passes on the skills of his craft. He explains how telling people the gospel of Jesus Christ requires us to be servants: servants of the Word itself (to understand it accurately), and servants of the people (to explain it clearly). Whether you are a person who teaches the Bible in a Sunday school class, a small group Bible study, scripture at school, a teenage fellowship group or through preaching sermons, then this book is for you. In his inimitable way, 'Chappo' shows you, step by step, how to prepare and deliver a talk that clearly explains the gospel of Jesus Christ.

Sound advice for preaching evangelistic sermons
5 stars By Hoa, Dec 04 2016
Setting Hearts on Fire is a guide to preaching evangelistic sermons. At the same time, though, much of the book is a sound guide to biblical preaching of regular sermons, as Chapman walks through how to study a passage, preparing a sermon and delivery. There is a lot of sound biblical advice and practical guidance from an experienced evangelist in this book. Recommended for preachers of any sort.

Solid and down to earth
5 stars By Rory, Nov 19 2016
This book is a great help to anyone who wants to preach more outward looking sermons, that have aim and a goal- to turn people back to repentance and faith. Easy to read and very practical, John Chapman shows where all his ideas are coming from with many Biblical references but brought in a wise and engaging way. Highly recommended!
