Is it possible for evangelism and the social gospel to coexist harmoniously? Yes, say Dobson and Buckley, especially if good works support Jesus' great commandment to preach salvation and make disciples. Guiding Christians from the left and right to a middle way, this broadly biblical approach includes interviews with Franklin Graham, Tony Campolo, and others. 224 pages, softcover from Moody.
A resurgence of the Social Gospel is energizing many evangelicals, but what does the Bible say about the role of humanitarian works in the Christian life? As new covenant believers, Christians are called to a specific central task: to be ministers of God's message of salvation for sinners. At the same time, the New Testament justifies nearly every concern of the revitalized Social Gospel. Care for the poor and needy, reconciliation of social and racial divisions, and nurture for the sick and abused -- all can be biblical and Christ-honoring activities.
