Western society is now a very different, very difficult mission field. This insightful book shows how the church can effectively carry out its missionary calling by building a new theology of evangelism that has its focus on the church itself. After charting the church's historical shift away from a biblical theology of evangelism and highlighting the contemporary challenges to evangelical ministry, Darrell Guder discusses what a truly missional theology will mean for the institutional structures and practices of today's church.
