Publisher's Description

How do evangelism and social concern relate to one another in the mission of the church? How should the Old Testament's emphasis on social justice inform the praxis of modern believers? Does the Bible emphasize individual salvation, or does it teach a broader, more inclusive concept? Theologians, missiologists, pastors, and educators have wrestled with these questions for centuries. But especially since the early part of the twentieth century, this debate has increasingly become a point of contention among evangelical Christians, with few indications that a consensus may soon be forthcoming. Yet few have offered so thorough an answer to these questions as has Carl F. H. Henry. Henry's regenerational model of evangelism and social concern stands on the shoulders of Augustine and many others, and offers what may be the best way forward. This book explores Henry's thoughts on this subject and sets him in dialogue with numerous others who have written on these topics. Thus it will prove a valuable resource for all interested in this topic. ""Carl F. H. Henry was a prophetic voice who offered keen insight to resolve the twentieth-century bifurcation over the missional necessity of word and deed. Jerry Ireland's work presents a renewed opportunity to see the genius of Henry. This book cannot come at a better time, as twenty-first-century American evangelicals demonstrate a continuing propensity to polarize around key missional themes."" --Byron D. Klaus, President, Assemblies of God Theological Seminary, Springfield, MO Jerry M. Ireland is the director of Africa AG Care, an organization that facilitates compassionate ministries for the Assemblies of God for all of sub-Saharan Africa. He has a PhD in Theology and Apologetics (Liberty University).
