Product Description

Evangelism follows patterns presented in scripture, and can be broken down into three phases: outsiders being invited inside, a jaded insider invited to a deeper level, and children becoming adults. Evangelist encounters in the Bible confronted these types and are given as models for the modern-day church to learn from. Walter Brueggemann, concerned about the issue of evangelism in the church in the 1980s, penned this book almost two decades ago, and the themes he covers are still valid.

Publisher's Description

In this timely and provocative work, Walter Brueggemann applies his experience and skills in the area of biblical interpretation to the theme of evangelism. He argues for the importance of considering afresh how the Bible itself thinks and speaks about evangelism, how it enacts the dramatic claims of the "good news." Brueggemann here describes evangelism as a drama in three scenes, concerning (1) God's victory over the forces of chaos and death, (2) the announcement of that victory, and (3) its appropriation by those who hear the announcement. This same dramatic sequence, as he shows, is many time re-enacted in the Bible; the times and circumstances of the re-enactment may differ, but the essential message, as well as the structure of its presentation, remains the same.
