Look Inside the Book

Coming from decades of faithful witnessing as a pastor, a U.S. Navy officer, and a door-to-door evangelist, Taking Men Alive: Evangelism on the Front Lines shares Jim Wilson's extensive wisdom on evangelism. Jim's insights have been gleaned from a huge variety of personal interactions and straightforward (yet surprising) exegesis of biblical accounts of evangelism.

Entertaining and intensely practical, Taking Men Alive is an inspiring evangelistic meditation and a powerful handbook for determining what spiritual state your neighbor is in and how you should approach taking his heart for the Lord Jesus Christ. Taking Men Alive is the third and final handbook in the Practical Evangelism series, following Principles of War and Weapons & Tactics.

What People Are Saying:

"Best book on Evangelism I have ever read. Be a servant, be sensitive to the Holy Spirit, speak the Truth, be sensitive to those around you, walk in the Light. Highly recommended." -Jerome

Gift for active soldier, He liked it

I have a friend who is currently serving in the Army in Alaska. He has really enjoyed the book so far.

This book was extremely good. The field has to be prepared before you reap! Great stories, great practical advice for sharing the gospel.

The origin of Rules for Reformers

I eternally benefited from the majority of this teaching from Jim and Bessie in Spring Canyon more than 40 years ago. It was a great joy to read it in print.

Kevin M.
Most excellent resource

This is truly an excellent work to help in evangelism. In fact, without the approach Jim espouses, believers will not pursue evangelism unb a wise way if they just randomly preach. Jesus's direction to Paul in acts 26 need to be heeded by every believer who wants to "take men alive."
