Four Mountain Evangelism

I was listening to a podcast from Way of the Master Radio this morning when Todd Friel offered this evangelism outline. I don't know if this was his idea or not, but I thought it was a pretty cool outline to consider.

Four Mountain Evangelism
    Mount Sinai
On this mount, we receive the 10 Commandments, God's righteous standard. If we are honest before that standard, we realize that there is none righteous, not even one.
    "Sermon on the Mount"
Lest we fall into thinking a heartless adherence to rules acheives righteousness, Christ preaches about our heart condition in the midst of obedience. We see that the problem is not just that we sin, but that we sin because we are sinners.
    "Mount" Calvary
Jesus offers to be our propitiation by laying down his life in crucifixion. His death and resurrection appease the wrath of God and offer us life eternal if we will turn from our ways and place our faith in this message.
    Mount Zion
Jesus is going to return to this earth, fully displaying His office of Conquering King. Every person will have to give an account to Him. Are you ready?

Of course, I am not advocating a cookie cutter method of evangelism, where you just walk up to a person and spout off "The Four Mountains," but I could see this being an intriguing conversation with a nonbeliver. I especially like that it displays the gospel message is the thread through all of Scripture (something I've been passionate about lately, if you can't tell).
