The subtle enemies that affect the soul-winning efforts of the local church have too long gone unnoticed as well as unchallenged. Dr. Jack Hyles, Pastor of the church with the “World’s Largest Sunday School” and the worlds foremost soul-winning ministries, contests these enemies, one by one.
These enemies must be exposed for what they are: a definite attempt, by Satan, to stop fundamental, soul-winning churches from doing the work God has ordained them to do.
These insights given by Dr. Hyles may seem controversial, but in reality they are logical as well as Biblical.
Enemies of Soul Winning will reveal adversaries you may have thought were your friends!
