Medical Evangelism is a unique way of reaching out to the lost in our world. It is a viable option that can help missions’ organizations to break into religious, political, and cultural strongholds in every part of the world with the Great Commission.
In the pages of this book, you will discover how modern medicine has been part of the gospel that reached the shores of Africa. We explore how various traditions of the Christian Faith in Ghana received and continued/discontinued with the use of modern medicine in Ghana. We examine in detail what it means to engage in short term medical evangelistic activity.
The book posits that medicine is a tool that facilitates evangelism by preparing the hearts of beneficiaries for the reception of the Gospel.
“This book is set out for those who desire to practice the compassionate ministry of Jesus Christ by preaching, healing and the deliverance of souls in medically-deprived communities, and at the same time desire to present the gospel with its full impact using a practical well-organized and time-tested model. The book serves as a learning material that brings dynamism to individuals, Christian fellowships, churches and missions across the globe desiring to engage in medical evangelism.”

“This book, throws light on medical evangelism as was used by the Pentecostals, Charismatics, and the historic mainline churches. It fills an important vacuum in the intersection between missiology and medicine. I am sure that it will provide guidelines for the use of medicine in missions.”
