Course Description

THE MASTER PLAN OF EVANGELISM - DR. ROBERT E. COLEMAN

This section is based on the classic book that has sold more than three million copies and been translated into 60 languages. This course is the only known recording of Dr. Robert Coleman’s principles of The Master Plan of Evangelism. Billy Graham said: “Few books have had as great an impact on the cause of world evangelization in our generation as Robert Coleman's The Master Plan of Evangelism." In this section, you can see and hear Dr. Coleman teach his renowned book!

It all started when Jesus called a few men to follow him and share God's message with their neighbors. We are called to do the same. But evangelism can be difficult--even intimidating. With all the evangelism resources available, where should you turn to find advice on how to share the Good News with others? Robert E. Coleman says the answers aren't found in TV evangelism, easy-evangelism guidebooks, or the latest marketing techniques. Rather, he looks to the Bible, to the ultimate example found in Jesus Christ. For more than forty years this classic, biblical look at evangelism has challenged and instructed over three million readers. Now repackaged on video for our contemporary challenges, The Master Plan of Evangelism is as fresh and relevant as ever. Join the movement and discover how you can minister to the people God brings into your life.

Professor:
Dr. Coleman has taught at Gordon-Conwell South Hamilton since 2001, after directing the School of World Mission and Evangelism at Trinity Evangelical Divinity School for 18 years. He is a popular preacher, speaker, and teacher, averaging about 35 speaking engagements per year around the world. 

Widely known for his ministry as a disciple-maker and evangelist, Dr. Coleman currently serves on the Mission America Facilitation Committee and several international mission boards and is the president of Christian Outreach. From 1989-2001, he led the Institute of Evangelism in the Billy Graham Center at Wheaton College and served as Dean of the Billy Graham International Schools of Evangelism. He is also a founding member of the Lausanne Committee for World Evangelism and a past president of the Academy for Evangelism in Theological Education. 

Dr. Coleman’s scholarly interests include the theology of evangelism, revival, and the lifestyle of the Great Commission. Dr. Coleman is a prolific author, having written hundreds of articles and 21 books, though he is best known for The Master Plan of Evangelism. Translations of one or more of his books are published in 109 languages, with English editions alone exceeding 7 million copies. 

SECTION II

MUSLIM EVANGELISM AND DISCIPLESHIP - PROF. GEORGES HOUSSNEY

In this section, Prof. Georges Houssney walks us through the journey of sharing our faith with Muslims by leading them into a discipleship journey with Jesus Christ. By using his many personal stories and experiences, this course provides a very practical lesson in the questions and struggles faced by both Muslims and those engaging them

Professor:
Georges Houssney was raised in the predominantly Muslim city of Tripoli, Lebanon. He came to faith in Jesus Christ as a teenager. Soon God grew a deep love for Muslims in his heart, and he began to sense God’s call for full-time service among them. Well-known for his work supervising the translation and publication of the Bible into clear modern Arabic, Georges and his family moved from the Middle East to the United States in 1982 to minister to international students. Georges is passionate about reaching internationals here and abroad with the great news of salvation. He writes and lectures internationally about ministry to Muslims, and he strives to awaken a new generation who will proclaim the gospel boldly.
 

SECTION III

FREEDOM FROM THE SPIRITUAL AGREEMENTS OF ISLAM - DR. MARK DURIE

In this section, Dr. Mark Durie looks at the spiritual and historical roots of Islam beginning with the rejections which Muhammad faced and his responses to them compared with the life of Christ. As a result of these rejections, we see the spiritual strongholds of Islam come into the light. Prof. Durie then provides a comprehensive look at breaking the strongholds of the Shahada and dhimmitude. The course concludes with powerful prayers of repentance to walk Muslim converts through to renounce and break free from the spiritual oppression of Islam. 

Professor:
Dr. Mark Durie is a theologian, human rights activist, Anglican pastor, a Shillman-Ginsburg Writing Fellow at the Middle East Forum, and an Adjunct Research Fellow of the Centre for the Study of Islam and Other Faiths at Melbourne School of Theology. He has published many articles and books on the language and culture of the Acehnese, Christian-Muslim relations, and religious freedom. A graduate of the Australian National University and the Australian College of Theology, he has held visiting appointments at the University of Leiden, MIT, UCLA, and Stanford, and was elected a Fellow of the Australian Academy of the Humanities in 1992.
