Speaking for Christ: Everyday Evangelism through the Promise of Forgiveness
by Rev. Hugh Brewer and the Rev. Dr. Steven E. King
"Speaking for Christ" is a Bible study on evangelism and what it means to share the message of Jesus in our everyday life. It approaches the subject by focusing on how God uses us to be his ambassadors and drives to the heart of the reason Jesus came into the world, to reconcile the world to himself through the proclamation of repentance and forgiveness of sins.
The study spotlights Scripture passages related to what Lutherans call "The Office of the Keys" — that is, the power Jesus gave his disciples to announce the forgiveness of sins in his name. This is a calling and authority Christ has granted to the whole church and it is foundational to the saving message of the Gospel itself.
