George W. Robertson – What is Evangelism?

What is evangelismIn the Basics of Faith series booklets introduce readers to basic Reformed doctrine and practice. On issues of church government and practice they reflect that framework – otherwise they are suitable for all church situations. George W. Robertson answers the question What is Evangelism? by unpacking five different approaches to evangelism: testimonial, invitational, intentional, compassionate, and intellectual ways to proclaim the good news about Jesus Christ. Biblical evangelism is inseparable from social responsibility, Christian discipleship, and church renewal. Robertson explains biblical sources and practical implications. The salvation we claim should be transforming us in the totality of our personal and social responsibilities. Faith without works is dead. Evangelism is God’s work of growing his family to an inestimable number who will be gathered before him at the last day. The faithful must trust in the sovereign grace of God. They must pray that God’s Spirit will bring in his harvest of souls. The booklet is clear and comprehensive. A good starter or refreshment of our principal duty: go and tell the whole world the good news of God’s grace for mankind.
