The Ethics of Evangelism

Elmer J Thiessen

$75.00

Paperback

Should we try to bring people to Christ or not? In a multi-cultural world evangelism is often under attack, with those seeking to evangelize sometimes being branded arrogant, ignorant, hypocritical and meddlesome. Against such a backdrop this unique book asks what sort of evangelism is ethical in a liberal, post-Christian society. Thiessen discusses the immoral practices and attitudes that are sometimes associated with evangelism and them turns his insightful attention to a better way of approaching the subject. He demonstrates that evangelism in a liberal society can be ethical if we have something of the mind of Christ about us. He makes a significant contribution to the subject, giving confidence to those who dare to spread the good news of the Gospel in today's world.
