In 2017 the Barna group released results of a poll from churchgoers in which the question was, "Have you heard of the great commission?" Fifty-one percent answered "no." Six percent admitted, "I'm not sure." Twenty-five percent responded, "Yes,
but I can't recall the exact meaning." Only 17% of churchgoers questioned answered "yes," and were able to give a reasonable explanation of its meaning. Those results speak volumes about the current status of the church and individual disciples in regard to our
Biblical mission. The time has come for a book that will issue a strong call for a return to Biblical evangelism. Phoenix attorney, Joe La Rue described WHATEVER HAPPENED TO EVANGELISM? as "a timely,
thought-provoking study of what evangelism is, why it matters, who should do it, and how to accomplish it." After reading the manuscript,
Ben Merold, the man God used to build two mega-churches, said, "The book is great-best thing I have read in years." Jerry Vines, former
President of the Southern Baptist Convention, wrote, "Brother Pelfrey has given us a passionate and persuasive volume on why and how to do evangelism." Maybe, the right book at the right time.
