"A masterful study! For those who want to be more effective in contemporary evangelism, this book is essential reading." - Robert E. Coleman, Distinguished Professor of Evangelism and Discipleship, Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary. 202 pages, from Baker.
Evangelism is at the core of Christianity. It is a life and death matter both for the salvation of individuals and for the continuing growth of the church. Although the message of the gospel never changes, its means of communication must be continually modified to reflect the thought patterns and worldview of our changing culture.Reaching Generation Next is the perfect guide on how to effectively proclaim the gospel in today's postmodern culture. Both theological and practical, it provides Christian leaders and laypeople with a basic understanding of the essential aspects of evangelism and with foundational guidelines on how to evangelize. Veteran evangelist Lewis Drummond helps Christians understand how and why today's generation thinks the way it does and offers, in capsule form, sensible answers and convincing reasons for faith. While providing a basic theology of evangelism and stressing the important role of leadership, the book's primary theme is that every believer must become
"This may be Dr. Drummond's most relevant work ever, as he writes on helping the church of today face the challenge of a postmodern world. I know of no one anywhere who knows more about evangelism than Dr. Drummond, and I commend this book enthusiastically!" -Dr. James Merritt, senior pastor, First Baptist Church, Snellville, Georgia"Here Dr. Drummond, with profound insight and sensitivity, lays out the issues of communicating the Gospel in today's postmodern culture. A masterful study! For those who want to be more effective in contemporary evangelism, this book is essential reading." -Robert E. Coleman, Distinguished Professor of Evangelism and Discipleship, Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary"In our work of evangelism, we are compelled to contextualize and contemporize our Gospel message-providing we do not compromise Biblical truth. Few men have mastered this approach to evangelism like my dear friend Dr. Louis Drummond. His new book, Reaching Generation Next, is both a demonstration of good methodology and a declaration of great theology. I pray God's blessing upon this fresh approach to the task of reaching generation next for Christ and His kingdom." -Dr. Stephen F. Olford, Founder and Chairman of Olford Ministries, International and Senior Lecturer at the Stephen Olford Center for Biblical Preaching"Lewis Drummond has given us a biblical perspective on Reaching Generation Next, with emphasis on local church outreach and personal soul winning. While many have written to advocate making church services adaptable to postmoderns and focusing sermons on the needs of Generation X, Drummond has been faithful to his evangelistic and revivalist roots. He still maintains that the church's message is the gospel of Jesus Christ and that any person, any generation, can be reached through the powerful message that Jesus Christ saves sinners. This is a powerful book for lay classes in outreach and evangelism." -Elmer J. Towns, dean, Liberty University school of religion"It is hard to say something fresh about evangelism that moves beyond a summary of techniques and trends. But Lewis Drummond draws from the well of Christian wisdom to present a theologically grounded vision of sharing the faith--in the real world of email and dot coms. An important work for all those who love Jesus and want to make him known." -Timothy George, dean of Beeson Divinity School, Samford University; executive editor of Christianity Today
