Evangelism and the Sovereignty of God by J. I. Packer | Nicholas Spencer –
It is against this backdrop that J. Somehow, although God is absolutely evangellism, He has ordained that we would be responsible for our involvement in His plans.
Our obedient response to this antinomy is to accept sovereigntyy for what it is and learn to live with it. Any other response would be to minimize something God deems important and even necessary to a godly life. We cannot see Divine sovereignty and human responsible as opposites or principles that are in conflict with each other, but rather as principles that complement each other and are equally true.
The author turns to a lengthy discussion of evangelism where he defines what evangelism is and what it is not. He speaks of the message of evangelism as well as the motive and means for it. For a book weighing in at a mere pages, this one contains impressive depth and contains a thorough and satisfying treatment of the subject.
I highly recommend this book for all believers and trust anyone will be able to learn and grow through it. In lieu of a comments section, I accept and encourage evajgelism to the editor.
