The strength of Two Ways to Live as a gospel outline is that it explains the gospel of Jesus Christ in the context of the overarching story of the Bible, giving the non-Christian hearer or reader all the presuppositions and assumptions they need to grasp the real significance of Jesus' death and resurrection. In other words, whilst it is a brief and logical presentation, it provides all the foundations a non-Christian needs to know in order to become a Christian.

"If the redemptive-historical work of Christ is the core of the Christian gospel, then 2 Ways to Live is the evangelistic training tool we’ve been waiting for. No other short gospel presentation places the redemptive accomplishment of Christ’s life, death, and resurrection so central and presents it so simply and clearly. " — Jeff Shamess, Westminster Bookstore
"This is the best short gospel presentation that I know of." — Mark Dever, Senior Pastor, Capitol Hill Baptist Church
"At the risk of oversimplification, most evangelistic tools in the Western world are subsets of systematic theology. By this I mean that they tend to ask atemporal questions, and give atemporal answers ... There is nothing intrinsically wrong with this pattern, as long as the people to whom it is presented have already bought into the Judeo-Christian heritage... But if you present these atemporal outlines of the gospel to those who know nothing about the Bible's plotline, and who have bought into one form or another of New Age theosophy, how will they hear you?... In short, the good news of Jesus Christ is virtually incoherent unless it is securely set into a biblical worldview... In the last few years, several evangelistic tools have been created that are far more sensitive to the Bible's ‘story line’.The first of these to be prepared is still one of the most effective: Two Ways to Live presents Christ in six steps, the six steps offering, in contemporary English, something of the Bible's plot-line as the necessary framework in which to understand the gospel." — D. A. Carson, from his book The Gagging of God
