We are pleased to present this book as a joint publication of the Home Mission Board and the Sunday School Board of the Southern Baptist Convention. Dr. C.E. Matthews, the author, is secretary of the department of evangelism of the Home Mission Board. He is unexcelled as a personal soul-winner and a flaming evangel for Christ in his proclamation of the saving gospel of Jesus Christ. Out of a rich experience and years of study he gives to Southern Baptists this book on personal soul-winning.
This book will be used by the Home Mission Board in its promotion of evangelism through the Southern Baptist Convention territory. It is being placed in the Graded Training Union Study Course for All Church Members published by the Broadman Press. It is an accredited book for both young people and adults.
It is our earnest prayer and confident hope that thousands of our Southern Baptist church members may be led to become personal soul-winners through the study of this book.
