If you could be guaranteed that your spouse or child or your parents or some significant other in your life would definitely come to Salvation in Jesus Christ for a certain amount of money, would you do it?

What would pay the “going” price for that individual? $20? A hundred dollars? A thousand? $10,000?
What if you could pay on a $2 with the hope of someone coming to Christ? With an amount be $20 hundred thousand dollars $10,000? What about $19.95?
In the past fifty years and longer there have been any number of different approaches to evangelism. (Please note; nothing here is intended to be an exhaustive list.)
