Endorsements . . . 

 

"I have dedicated over 55 years of my life to helping fulfill the Great Commission and happily endorse any effort that emphasizes  Biblical  Evangelism.  This  is  the  simple message of Secret to an Open Door, and is one that every Christian needs to read – people are not won to Christ by complex arguments, but through the direct power of God, working through believers who choose, in the power of the Holy Spirit, to step out in faith."

Dr. Bill Bright, Founder
Campus Crusade For Christ

 

"Sharing your faith can be a mysterious, even daunting, prospect.  But that was our Lord's final command to us.  Can we take the mystery out of personal evangelism?  David Morel does in his book, Secret to an Open Door.  The book is filled with Scripture, practical applications, and personal anecdotes that make the reader say, 'I can do that!'  For any seasoned personal witness, and for all who want to be, Secret to an Open Door is neither long on theory nor short on application.  It is a book you can use and one that deserves to be read."

Dr. Woodrow Kroll, President
Back To The Bible

 

"I want to thank you for your book, Secret to an Open Door.  I appreciate the rich insights that you share in the book on the principles of specific prayer, the ways of leading others to Christ, and growing in the Lord.  Your zeal for the Lord and boldness in witnessing for Him are both an example and inspiration.  I know that the Lord has already rewarded you for your dedicated ministry, and I trust that He will continue to do so for many years to come."

Bill Gothard, President

Institute in Basic Life Principles

 

Secret to an Open Door is both sound and practical.  It points out that we are the instrument God can use to share His Gospel and He is the one who provides the opportunity and the power for witnessing.  This book rightly emphasizes the role of the Holy Spirit in soul-winning and that it is He who opens the door for our witness.  Thanks for sharing your book with me.  I have had many of the same experiences you described.  I pray that God will bless the distribution of Secret to an Open Door and use it to inspire and challenge many to become soul-winners.”

Dr. James T. Draper, Jr., Past President & CEO

LifeWay Christian Resources

 

"Secret to an Open Door is a beautiful challenge to soul-winning based on prayer and the Word of God"

Robert E. Coleman, Author The Master Plan of Evangelism

Professor of Evangelism and Discipleship Gordon Conwell Theological Seminary

 

"If you are looking for a compact book with a clear outline of personal witnessing, then this resource is for you. Morel writes with humility and honesty. His insights emerge from both study and failures overcome. Anyone who needs motivation to engage in personal evangelism, or who has stalled in his or her efforts due to frustration, would benefit from this book."

Dr. Kwasi Kena, Director of Evangelism

United Methodist General Board of Discipleship

 

“Thank you for your book, Secret to an Open Door.  It is a great little book that covers a host of wonderful encouragements to be a soul-winner.  It is good that you included the chapter on dealing with objections.  That will help to equip people and take the fear away.  I pray this book will do well!”

Dr. Bobby H. Welch, Past President

Southern Baptist Convention

 

"Thank you for your heart . . . I will buy Secret to an Open Door for the first 10 of my employees who come up here to get one!"  (Morning Devotions Dave Ramsey's Office)

Dave Ramsey, President

Financial Peace University

 

Secret to an Open Door is simple, straight-forward, passionate, and I'm sure very helpful to those who read it.  I am grateful for folks who are as passionate about sharing the Gospel as David Morel obviously is.  As he speaks and shares with others, they are going to respond to this book."

Dr. Maxie D. Dunnam, Chancellor

Asbury Theological Seminary

 

I am the Director of Evangelism for our state convention (Southern Baptist) here in Illinois.  While visiting with a pastor recently, he gave me a copy of your book Secret to an Open Door.  I started reading and I couldn’t put it down!  God has gifted you to communicate timeless truths in simple and concise, yet powerful ways.  In my work I provide pastors with resources and would like to add your book to my list.  Our state evangelism conference is coming March 1st and I want to put a copy in the hand of every pastor that attends, plus stockpile some here in the office to take with me when visiting in the field.  May God bless your life and ministry in ways “exceedingly abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to His power that works in us."

Randy Mullinax, Director of Evangelism
Illinois Baptist State Association

 

“David, I read your book, Secret to an Open Door.  It is excellent.  It is the best book I have ever read on the subject of evangelism.  It was a big encouragement to me, it blessed my heart, and it will improve my witness.  Thank you for sharing a copy with me.” 

Durward K. Sobek, Past International Chaplain

The Gideons International

 

"Thank you so much for your book, Secret to an Open Door.  I found it an encouragement and a blessing.  The main thrust of the book is salvation is of the Lord.  We cannot do it; He must.  May our Lord enable us both to be used of Him to produce abiding fruit."

Dr. Paul Dixon, Chancellor

Cedarville University, Ohio

 

"I would recommend that each of you get Secret to an Open Door by David Morel.  In this book he discusses a great concept from Colossians 4:2-4, where we pray for God to open the door for us to share the mystery of the gospel, and when He does to give us the words to say.  It is true that we are to know Scripture and to be able to share the gospel whenever we have the opportunity, but it is God that opens that door.  It is not based on my clever presentation, or how well I have it memorized, but it all depends on God opening the door.  Read the book; it is refreshing."

Dr. Jerry Essary, Evangelism Specialist

Tennessee Baptist Convention

 

"Some books are instructive but not motivational, while others are motivational but not so instructive.  Secret to an Open Door hit two home runs with me – teaching me new methods of evangelism and motivating me to go out and try them.  What a treasure!  And it is so short and simple.  I recommend both the book and the author without hesitation."

Rev. Robert J. Morgan, Senior Pastor

The Donelson Fellowship – Nashville, Tennessee

 

"'He who wins souls is wise' .... (Proverbs 11:30) .... But I am not nearly wise enough.  God must do it through me!  Day by day the Holy Spirit is teaching me how to lean upon the work of God in my own life to effectively witness of God's love to others.  Every day I am placing my life in Christ's hands, asking Him to live His life through me.  Secret to an Open Door is valuable beyond description in this whole process.  It stresses the importance of prayer and reliance upon God's Spirit to give us opportunity and ability to share Christ.

This wonderful book has brought a whole new level of excitement to each and every occasion upon which I am offered the opportunity to speak of the Lord.  I always keep several copies within reach so that I can share them with others.  I praise my God for David Morel and his masterpiece, Secret to an Open Door."

Jack Galloway, Minister of Evangelism

First Church of the Nazarene – Nashville, Tennessee

 

"This book is 'right on' when it comes to personal evangelizing and soul winning.  I believe that it is vitally important that, no matter what ministry a person is in, they are always to be soul-conscious.  Thank you for writing this book about the most important ministry that is incumbent upon every believer."  

Dennis Gwizdala, Michigan

Dennis Gwizdala Ministries

 

"I Just wanted to send a quick note to say thank you for your years of study and I am sure countless sleepless nights writing, "Secret to an Open Door."  I purchased a few copies a couple of months ago shortly after my senior pastor asked me to head up the church evangelism ministry.  I started taking excerpts from your book as I would teach the class about the how, why, where, when, etc. of evangelism.  After going through the class once and reading your book in preparation for the second series of classes, I decided that this book is too valuable to just give them excerpts.  So, I ordered several more copies so each person can read this book first hand.  

Once again, thank you for being moved by the Spirit of the Living God and sacrificing your time and money to put this ministry and both books (Secret to an Open Door and the New Testament - Life Reference Manual) together.  I have looked high and low for a pocket Bible that is good for evangelism -- this one is beyond good!  For all that you have poured out of your spirit may God give back to you 100 fold in abundant blessings and great favor.  That the lost may be found,

Pastor Brian Coscia - Indiana

 

"Brother Dave, I need to have 10 more books shipped to me.  I have read Secret to an Open Door a number of times and have been recommending it to others.  It is one of the best books on evangelism.  I think it should be required reading for all Gideons."

Tor Kjell Torkelsen, Past New York State President

The Gideons International

 

"This is a great, short book with clear and concise Biblical principles that take the mystery and fear out of reaching out to others.  The author has included excellent personal stories that punctuate his points and make the reader feel that, they too can do it ... This book would appeal to any denomination there are no pet theologies expounded here.  It's strictly Biblical."  

Evergreen Publishing

 

"Thank you so much for the very thoughtful gift of Secret to an Open Door.  It is just loaded with gems.  David Morel is truly a servant of God.  Every time I heard him speak, it seemed like he just emptied himself totally.  I know God has a wonderful plan for his life."

Dr. Morris Talbert, Past Kansas State President

The Gideons International

 

"Thank you for writing such a wonderful book.  I have 10 people going with me to Jamaica on a mission trip.  I will ask them all to read it."

Dr. John Price, Florida 

Evangelist / Pastor

 

"Many, many thanks for a copy of your splendid little book, which I came across completely by accident (an associate pastor was using it when I called on him).  It took me nearly 3 days to fly back to Australia and I was so grateful to have a book that I could read and contemplate and read again.  I would like to report that I had tremendous results with the people who sat next to me on the crowded flights.  I found the thoughts written in your book to be splendidly helpful and relevant to me."

Roger Martin, International Trustee Australia

The Gideons International

 

"I can definitely recommend this book.  It is so important ... yet so simple ... it's embarrassing that it needed to be written."
Guy Malone, New Mexico

Author – Come Sail Away

 

"I just finished reading it and you have written a masterful book on soul winning.  I particularly like the way you weave the steps to win souls to Christ with your own personal experiences.  There have been times when I have wanted to reach out beyond my comfort zone and witness to others. I may have lacked courage, but after reading your book I realized what I really lacked.  I was convicted."

Lou Alverides, Tennessee 

President, Holliday Enterprises

 

"We have finished reading and enjoying your book.  We especially liked your emphasis on the importance of seeing this as God's work, depending on Him to arrange opportunities, and letting Him bring forth fruit in His time.  It was encouraging to read.  Thanks again!"

Barth & Sally Middleton, Michigan

Child Evangelism Fellowship

 

"I have read about a half dozen books on evangelism.  Secret to an Open Door is the best one yet!  Thanks."

Randy Bjork, Past Illinois State President

The Gideons International

 

"Dave, regarding your book, I just want you to know that my wife and I have immensely enjoyed reading its content. It is a practical book for soul winning with some key biblical anchors to true spiritual evangelism.  I so appreciate your labor for Christ and your witness."

Dr. Richard Talley, Past International Trustee

The Gideons International

 

"Thanks for your fine book!  I agree with (above) Dr. Woodrow Kroll."

David Goodnow, Georgia

CNN Headline News Anchor (Retired)

 

"Thanks for sharing your heart with our folks.  It was outstanding!  The tape can be copied and shared with those who were unable to attend.  We look forward to having you back soon.  Perhaps we can begin a Soul-Seeking-Series."

Rev. D.L. Withers, Tennessee

River of Faith Church

 

"I finished this book and I'm going to read it again.  It is wonderful - inspiring - very good!  A must for your tackle box!"

David Campbell, Tennessee

Fish The Net – The Evangelistic Tackle Box

 

"Thanks again for your book.  The prayers and the anecdotes were helpful.  Betty and I were blessed to have read it and I am in the process of memorizing the prayer from Colossians.  You are in our prayers regularly."

Rev. Mike Luce, Michigan

Poseyville United Methodist Church

 

"Secret to an Open Door touched my heart deeply. I read it prayerfully the first time seeking God's voice and message to me. The Lord had already led me to memorize Scripture and had placed a deep desire within me to share Christ in this lost and dying world.  Your book resonated a confirmation within my spirit that I had heard the Lord.  As I read your book a second time, I prayed that the Holy Spirit would reveal anything in me that would hinder God from using me in witnessing.  My spirit and heart wept with joy as the Lord took me through your book.  He opened my eyes to the fact that I was a vessel of His Word and of the Holy Spirit in witnessing. 

The third time I read your book I asked the Lord to open my eyes and heart to all that Satan would try to hide from me. This time it took me longer to go through the book.  I asked the Lord to give me His eyes to see and His mind to comprehend all that I needed.  I saw through your book that God wants me to do nothing but abide in Him and His Word, that it might be manifested through me as He opens the door.  Witnessing is not the controlled act of a Christian, but is part of who the believer is in Christ.  It is as natural to the yielded believer as breathing is to us as humans."
Janice Smith, Auxiliary State Cabinet
Tennessee 

The Gideons International

 

"I am really getting a lot out of the book.  It has changed my prayer life.  I am dwelling over each section, thinking about what has been said and the related Scriptures.  Thank you so much."

Banjo Jimmy, California

 

"I received Secret to an Open Door today.  I read it in it's entirety in one sitting.  Almost every Scripture that we employ in our curriculum of evangelism is in your book.  However, the Colossians' prayer and the Ephesians' prayer are new to me and have already impacted my life spiritually and physically.  By physically, I mean, when I came downstairs upon completion of your wonderful and powerful book, I felt like Moses coming down from Mount Sinai.  I'm feeling an intense desire to commit to memory the aforementioned Scriptures and others from the book."

Samuel Wayne Harrison, Louisiana

Stonewall Missionary Baptist Church

 

"What a joy to receive your book.  It is very well written and it certainly does ignite a passion for lost souls.  Evangelism is the key to this world of terrorism.  God Bless you for this ministry."

Rev. Don Martin, Oklahoma

Senior Pastor

 

"Thanks for your book.  I enjoyed it.  In fact, I am teaching an evangelism class at church this winter and this will be an excellent additional resource."

Keith Jenkins, Illinois

Associate Professor, Judson College

 

"I thoroughly enjoyed your book and have picked up several good ideas to incorporate with my witnessing.  I really appreciate having the resource to use.  We are  dedicating five Bibles in recognition of this book and your efforts to promote soul winning.  Best to you."

Jerald Anderberg, Past Montana State President
