MEDIA ADVISORY, Mar. 26 /Christian Newswire/ -- In his book, Who Is This Jesus?, Daniel (Dan) Owens draws you into a closer relationship with Jesus as he writes about the character and qualities of Jesus as inspired by the Gospel of John. Because of Owens' special relationship with Luis Palau, and Palau's love of the teachings of apostle John, this book has been dedicated to Luis Palau, Owens long-time friend and mentor.
In his dedication to Luis Palau, Owens writes "Twenty years ago you gave me the privilege of working with you in evangelism. You once said to me, 'I will help open doors for you, but you will have to walk through them.' You kept your word, and I am forever grateful. The longer I am allowed by the Lord to 'do the work of an evangelist,' the more I hold your spiritual stamina in high regard.
"Through the years, the gospel of John has held a special place in your heart. Therefore, I dedicate this book, based on the teachings of the apostle John, to you. Thank you, Luis, for your friendship, your faithfulness, and your encouragement along the way."
Palau responded to Owens by saying "That introduction to your excellent messages on John's Gospel blessed me. Keep on evangelizing. The world is huge; the Great Commission is not revoked. Time is short."
After over twelve years working side-by-side with Luis Palau, Dan Owens stepped out in faith and launched Eternity Minded Ministries. The Lord has definitely blessed this ministry as Dan Owens uses his gift of evangelism at every opportunity, and shares his gift of teaching to disciple others. Since then, Owens has traveled around the world ministering to people of many nations and has proclaimed the Gospel leading hundreds of thousands of people to the Lord. Just recently Christian World News reported on the 5,000 souls that came to Christ during EMM's evangelistic festivals in Gitega Burundi Africa. The First Lady of Burundi attended and publicly extended her gratitude to EMM for their ministry in her country.
Dan has developed a unique and very successful holistic ministry model including humanitarian aid, evangelistic festivals, church planting, discipleship training, and follow-up. Following up with new believers is very important to Owens. This practice is what sets his ministry apart from many others. Owens emphasizes, "I don't want to be one who just preaches and hops on a plane to go home. We have made a commitment to those who invite us that we will invest our lives in their city to help establish the church there."
Daniel (Dan) Owens is also the author of Sharing Christ When You Feel You Can't, In God We Trust...but only as a last resort, A Faith That Is Real, and A Joy That is Real. In the forward of A Faith That is Real, Luis Palau writes "The rich, wonderful, and powerful book of James urges Christians to embrace a more authentic faith. My good friend Dan Owens’ book will challenge you to do the same. Read this book with an open Bible and an expectant heart."
