Item Description...
Overview
There are, it seems as many definitions of the term evangelism as there are people doing the defining. For some, it means proclaiming the gospel to those who have not heard it. To others, it means making disciples of Jesus Christ. To others it means working for the transformation of the world into the kingdom of God. For still others, it has principally to do with building vibrant, healthy congregations. Underlying this confusion is a fundamental inability to locate the practice of evangelism within one's overall theological convictions. We will never understand the part that proclamation, disciple making, kingdom building, and church growth play in evangelism until we first ask a more important question: What does evangelism have to do with who God is? What is it we know about God that makes evangelism a central part of what it means to be Christian? In this comprehensive theology of evangelism, Scott J. Jones proposes to ground the practice of evangelism in an understanding of God's love for the world, specifically as seen in the incarnation of God in Christ. Because in Jesus God took on all of what it means to be human, evangelism must be a ministry to the whole person. The typical distinctions between soul-winning, social action, and church growth evaporate; individual conversion and acts of mercy are part of the same ministry of bringing persons more fully into the reign of a loving God.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Well Done!  Feb 3, 2007
Dr. Jones has used his training, education, and pastorial experience to create an indepth study on the topic of evangelism. In the first two sections he builds on the work of others with his own thoughts to define the topic and promote the concept that evangelism is critical to the Christian life. In the final section, Dr. Jones provides practical yet powerful steps to make your local church effective in evangelism. This is an excellent book for anyone who desires to be effective in the growth of the kingdom of God.
