  • Summary:

    In Rethinking Evangelism: A Theological Approach, Ben Campbell Johnson presents a fresh and creative way of looking at an age-old task. he seeks to rediscover evangelism, plaving it at the heart of Christianity. He sees the starting point of evangelism as human beings: their needs, questions, and desires. He considers the decline in membership in mainline Protestant denominations and concludes that this situation can challenge the churches to reexamine their approach to evangelism and its underlying theology. In separate chapters, he exploes the central teachings of the Christian faith – humanity, God, Christ, Holy Spirit, the church, salvation, faith, and the kindom of God – establishing these doctrines as the basis for evangelism. This is more than a how-to book. It offers a new way of thinking about evangelism that is rich with possibilities.
