Most Bible study groups become inwardly focused over time, so they must be intentional about focusing outward. In 48 information-packed pages, David Francis, Allan Taylor, and Ken Braddy discuss outreach and evangelism—what may be the most neglected aspects of the role of a group leader. The authors look at practices, principles, and perspectives that are foundational for a group to establish, reestablish, or maintain a focus on outreach and evangelism.
