Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary to Release New Evangelism Devotional

Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary will release a new evangelism devotional at the Southern Baptist Convention’s annual meeting in Birmingham, Ala.

Titled “And You Will Be My Witnesses: 31 Devotionals to Encourage a Spirit of Everyday Evangelism,” the book features devotionals that exposit a select passage of Scripture from the Gospels and Acts pertaining to evangelism.

Published by Seminary Hill Press at SWBTS, the devotional is edited by Matt Queen, who holds the L.R. Scarborough Chair of Evangelism (“Chair of Fire”) at Southwestern, and Alex Sibley, managing editor of Seminary Hill Press.

“Most, if not all, evangelism devotionals are topical or subjective in their approach,” Queen said. “However, 31 Devotionals differs from other evangelism devotionals in that every day’s entry presents a text-driven application of evangelistic encounters in both the Gospels and Acts.”

Sibley said the devotionals are designed to lead readers in application-based study of the Scripture so that, when read with an open Bible, they will “illuminate the Scripture’s teaching on various aspects of the evangelistic task, highlighting how the likes of Paul, Peter, John, Stephen, Philip, John the Baptist and Jesus Himself went about proclaiming the message of God’s salvation for the world.”
