What happens when God gives you an opportunity to talk about Christianity or the gospel in everyday conversation? Do you smoothly explain who Jesus is and what he has done, feeling confident to answer any questions that come your way? Or do you fumble or freeze up, not really knowing what to say and feeling nervous about how it will be received?
This Learn Together book will teach and train you to share the gospel of Jesus with other people, naturally, confidently, clearly and faithfully, in your own unique way.
Share the Gospel uses the well-known gospel outline Two Ways to Live as a framework, and is the sequel to Learn the Gospel. We recommend that you work through Learn the Gospel before tackling this book, or at least be reasonably familiar with the Two Ways to Live outline.
Question: How does Share the Gospel relate to the original Two Ways to Live course?
Answer: The Two Ways to Live: Know and share the gospel course had two main goals for participants: first, that they would come away with a sound and thorough knowledge of what the gospel is, and second, that they would gain the ability to share it with someone clearly and naturally when the opportunity arises.
These two goals have been split into two separate courses in order to see them both achieved more effectively. Learn the Gospel teaches what the gospel is; this course Share the Gospel equips people who have gone through Learn the Gospel to explain the gospel to others. Obviously, with Learn the Gospel and Share the Gospel having a combined total of 16 sessions, there is now considerably more time to go deeper and do a better job of achieving these two goals (the old course was just seven sessions in total).
The new courses are also much easier to lead than the old course, and they are therefore now very suitable for use in growth groups. The quality of the video components in the new course is also significantly higher.
Learn the Gospel and Share the Gospel are based on the 2021 revised edition of Two Ways to Live and its slightly updated and improved wording, choice of Bible verses and gospel logic.
The old Two Ways to Live course is being phased out and will no longer be available once we’ve run out of stock.
Question: Will this course get participants to memorise Two Ways to Live?
Answer: Some participants will have already done this memorisation through Learn the Gospel, but yes, this course does encourage and provide time for people to memorise the Bible verses and illustrations that go with Two Ways to Live. This is to make sure that the key concepts and foundations of the gospel are understood thoroughly and internalised.
Question: How much does the video material for Share the Gospel cost?
Answer: All the videos are free and can be streamed or downloaded. They will be available from December 2023.

Is it believable that he rose from the dead, and why does it matter?More to the point, is any of this strange message even true?
