Product description

Explores the importance of evangelism for the health and future of the church, particularly at a time when the majority of the British population is not looking to the church for its spiritual sustenance. The problem is that often what churches and individuals reject is a mere caricature of evangelism or a particular form of evangelism which may no longer be culturally appropriate. This book aims to be part of a much-needed discussion concerning what evangelism is and what it might look like in the 21 century. It will refer to current popular evangelism courses (Alpha and Christianity Explored) but only in passing. At a time when the majority of people do not attend church, evangelism is more important than ever. The problem is that churches and individuals often struggle with or even reject the idea, when what they have in mind is a caricature of evangelism or a particular way which may no longer be culturally appropriate.This book aims to reform, re-imagine and renew a theology, vision and practice for evangelism. Its approach is theologically rigorous and powerfully practical, with the focus on redefining a genuine biblical evangelism. What does it mean to be an 'evangelist' now? If it isn't your primary gifting, how can you facilitate it in your church? And how can we connect not just with those on the fringes but with those who are way outside?
