Many of the principles and methods of evangelism from the twentieth century no longer work effectively today. We need new methods to communicate the timeless message of the gospel in culturally relevant ways. Combining the theological and biblical insights of classic evangelistic training with the latest insights on contextualization, cultural hermeneutics, and storytelling, author Sam Chan illuminates every chapter of Evangelism in a Skeptical World with real-world examples drawn from more than twenty years of experience in evangelistic ministry. Whether you're working with university students or urban workers, these methods will help you get past people's defensive posture toward Christianity so they can seriously consider the claims of Jesus Christ. Field-tested and filled with fresh and creative insights, this book equips pastors, ministry leaders, college and seminary students, and everyday Christians to share the gospel in today's skeptical world and help as many people as possible hear the good news about Jesus.
