Publisher's Description

<p>The Bible teaches that the church is called to a balanced ministry of both preaching the gospel in words and showing it with deeds. Yet the church has often found it difficult to find and maintain this balance. Today some are emphasizing deeds at the expense of words, while others hold fast to &"talking&" and forsake the doing. This is an imbalance that must be righted.</p><p>Standing at the helm of a leading Christian college, Duane Litfin has had a first-hand look at the issues students and alumni are talking about. Many Christians are excited to debate the importance of social justice and evangelism now more than ever before. Seeking to level the balance, Litfin steers the conversation toward the biblical harmony of word and deed, pointing out the church&’s tendency to overcorrect&—either cutting out the preaching of the gospel or forgetting the application of action.</p><p>An elder statesmen in the church, Litfin&’s training in communication theory and in detailed exegesis is brought to bear on this important subject, bringing verbal proclamation in sync with the witness of one&’s actions.</p>
