Product Description

Sowing the seed of the Gospel and harvesting the resultant crop are two important concerns for all Christians. Tim Downs emphasizes the sowing aspect in Finding Common Ground without downplaying the importance of harvesting. We live in a country and a world very different from the generations of the early and mid-1900s, and being aware of the differences can make us ready for the challenges of our day.
The biblical model for preaching the Gospel has two branches, both important and necessary for the spread of the Good News. While clearly a supporter of harvesting, Downs believes that this can only be accomplished fully after the seed of truth has been sown in the good soil. Downs marks out cultural indicators that should inform the individual Christian to whether harvesting or sowing, and, since the cultural indicators point towards a less receptive populace at this time, he advocates and illustrates the sowing perspective at this time in America's history.

Publisher's Description

When it comes to reaching the new generation for Christ, are believers truly sowing for the future, or just reaping the benefits of past evangelistic efforts? Tim Downs suggests practical ways for today's Christians to cultivate fruitful relationships in our communities, and bring our troubled culture the healing it needs so much.

    Powerful challenge to the church to be in the world but not of it; To live in light of eternity and still think in terms of the here and now. Loving your neighbor means to engage them in real life thoughtfully, respectfully and purposefully. What a refreshing book!

    Tim Downs has clearly shown the church what needs to happen if she wants to reach the "unchurched". Evangelism isn't for the professional staff, it's for everyone. Tim has sounded a wake up call to all of us!!
