Has the church abdicated its resonsibility and privilege for the spread of the gospel? Has this baptiamal birthright been forgotten or denied our of ignorance, poor example, or even misinformation? Stephen Pickard argues that the church is callled to be a community of the evangel and thus a community that seeks to embody the glad tidings of God in all of its life. He calls for a recovery of the complementary nature of theology and evangelism (the theory and practice of the gospel), discussing what this might involve and how it may benefit the church’s evangelistic task, which he then develops further in terms of the dynamics of communication. A concluding chapter explores an approach to evangelism that is both liberating and praise-centered.
