Chapter 1 – Leaven-Like Evangelism


Upon completion of this chapter you will be able to:

  • Write the Key Verses from memory.
  • Define “leaven-like evangelism.”
  • Explain “the definition of the lost.”
  • Explain “the destiny of the lost.”
  • Identify six steps in the evangelism process.


This lesson discusses the need for evangelism, explains the process of evangelism, and defines terms that are important for you to understand as you begin your study of this subject. In Old Testament times when the temple was built, the sound of a hammer, axe, or any tool of iron was not heard while it was being constructed (1 Kings 6:7).

The silence with which those great natural stones were put into place is a natural example of a great spiritual truth. A “greater than Solomon” is now building a greater spiritual temple. This spiritual temple is made up of “living stones” being laid by the Lord Jesus Christ. This temple also is being erected silently, with each stone perfectly fitted together. It is occurring through the silent but powerful process of “leaven-like evangelism.”
