Product Description

Spanning over thirty years of the literature of evangelism and missions, this book presents essays from experts in the field previously published in over a dozen magazines and books. A decidedly more liberal overview - addressing universalism and social justice, among other issues - and focused more on modern missions that historical aspects, the editors here attempt an exploration of what the mission of the Church is, should be, and can yet be.

Publisher Description

Christians and communities of faith today are rediscovering evangelism, not just for the sake of institutional survival, but as an essential aspect of the church's mission. Many of the books flooding the marketplace as a result have a "practice" orientation, often lacking serious theological engagement and reflection.
In The Study of Evangelism Paul W. Chilcote and Laceye C. Warner collect some of the increasing number of texts that buck this "how to" trend. The writings offered here plumb the depths of the biblical and theological heritage of the church with reference to evangelistic practice, but resist offering guidance to specific application in life.
These thirty groundbreaking essays on the practice of evangelism have been gathered into a single volume in order to enhance serious theological and contextual engagement with this aspect of the church's mission in the world. The book lays a solid, scholarly foundation for future discourse, speaking to all who practice and study evangelism from many different Christian perspectives. Through this book Chilcote and Warner aim to encourage reflective and open dialogue about the practice of evangelism within the community of faith.

Editor Bio
