Foreword by Kirk Cameron
When I came to Christ at 18 years old, I came as a successful young actor who had attained riches and fame. But a faithful pastor helped me to realize that my wealth and Hollywood charm wouldn’t help me on Judgment Day. I learned that because God is holy and just, He cannot be bribed. Despite the fact that I was admired by my fans and considered myself to be a good person, I came to understand that I had grievously sinned against God and needed His forgiveness. I learned about God’s love and mercy shown through Jesus' death on the cross, and it overwhelmed me. I wholeheartedly turned away from my sin, trusted God to forgive me, and asked Him to make me the man He wanted me to be. Someone gave me a Bible, which I began to read, and I fell in love with the One who first loved me and gave His own life for me.
I can honestly say that nothing in all my life compares with the joy of knowing Jesus Christ as Savior and Lord. But after learning the principles of biblical evangelism—the principles contained in this book—I fell to my knees with a deeper sense of brokenness and gratitude for the Cross than ever before. I now understand why the apostle Paul felt indebted to all men and compelled to preach the gospel to every creature. Because I know know God’s will for my life and better understand God’s call to every believer, I too can say, “Woe is me if I do not preach the gospel!” (I Corinthians 9:16). These foundation-shaking principles have opened my eyes to the destiny of the unsaved, taught me how to share my faith effectively, and shattered my lukewarm concern for my unsaved family members and friends.
Who do you know who isn’t saved? Your mother or father? A sibling? A good friend? Your spouse? Your child? Think of their terrible fate if they die without Christ. I’m sure you want to share your faith, but perhaps you’re afraid, or maybe you don’t feel equipped. This book will help you overcome your fears and give you the tools you need. With Ray Comfort’s powerful and biblically sound text, together with my commentaries and real-life stories of sharing my faith, I know this publication will be a great blessing to you. My prayer is that God would do within you what He did within me. May you, too, be given a fresh and deeper understanding of the true gospel, and may it ignite a fire in you to compassionately share your faith with those you know and love. Please don’t let anything distract you as you read The Way of the Master. May God richly bless you.
