Green - a prolific writer, with much of his work is written for a mass audience, but it also contributed to the development of academic research. Many of his works discuss the twin themes of evangelism and apologetics. One of the goals of the theologian - to bring good news to the people, to increase their quota of confidence and help them begin to share their opinions in matters of faith with others. At a higher level, Michael has made a valuable contribution to the academic study of the practical and theoretical sides of evangelism in his book `evangelism early Tserkvi`. In this paper we study the preaching of the Gospel through the New Testament texts and teachings of the early church fathers.

In his writings, an Anglican priest examines the various objections relating to the hypocrisy of the religious pluralism and highlights the popular questions of unbelief and doubt the existence of God. He studied the evidence of the life, death and resurrection of Jesus Christ in his two works. And his latest work, `The fiction and the truth is yes Vinchi` Code, is a powerful argument in favor of orthodox Christianity against Gnosticism. He claims that Gnosticism leads to the fall of morality, citing the case of homosexual initiation bishop of the Episcopal Church of the United States. Also, in his books, Michael examines questions of apprenticeship in the Christian life, sluzheniyai leadership in the church, the baptism doctrine, pneumatology and demonology.
