    One thought on “Evangelism”

    1. There's a couple good concepts here, but I can't stand this kind of writing style. It's mostly rhetorical questions and vague suggestions about what's wrong with various approaches to evangelism, without any concrete solutions or corrections. Conn opens the book saying he wants "to look at the relation between evangelism and social questions as two sides of the same coin." But 100 pages later, that thought is not so much developed as repeated. Could've (should've?) been a pamphlet.

    2. Another fantastic book. I'd heard that men like Keller, Conn, and Randy Neighbors were extremists, men to the far left of orthodox theology. To agree with them, to identify with Redeemer or New City, meant that you were way out on the edge. Perhaps I've drunk the Kool-Aid and can't see my own rose-colored glasses, but I don't think so. This book and Timothy Keller's Ministries of Mercy: The Call of the Jericho Road are really shaping my view of evangelism and ministry as a whole. I recommend the [...]

    3. This is a thought provoking and insightful look at reaching out through word and deed. However, it was written almost 30 years ago, and much of the data and examples are very dated. I'd hesitate to recommend it to someone who didn't have a solid understanding about how evangelicalism and the world have changed in that time period.

    4. Chapter 3 of this book was my favorite: "The scope of our evangelism must be at least as pervasive as the power of sin itself." Great quote.His idea of "holistic evangelism" really helped me see that doing justice and preaching grace are not separate acts, but one. The book is barely more than 100 pages and is somewhat dated, but I would highly recommend it.

    5. Good and practical little book! What he lacks in style he makes up for in substance and truth. In a world where evangelism has been greatly reduced to either solely social action or unethical proselytism, here gives a good balance.

    6. Heard about this often, but so glad I finally read this. This is a classic! So much gold in these pages especially helpful part is in chapter 4 when Conn breaks down dualistic understandings of "spirit-uality."

    7. Thought provoking and insightful look into evangelism. Offers more questions than it does answers and promotes action over further study which was a stated goal of the author.

    8. Solid book on evangelism and preaching. Some forgotten perspectives are hidden in this book that would be good to recover.

    9. Last three chapters are especially excellent. Someone needs to re-edit this book and come out with a second edition.

    10. The kind of book that is slim in size but huge in implications. The kind you hold onto closely.
