Ev 108 Doing Evangelism Ethically (2014)

Evangelism is central to the great commission that Jesus gave to his followers, to make disciples of all nations. Yet in some circles it has become a dirty word, with objections of arrogance, coercion and manipulation levelled against some of its forms.

In such a context, formulating an ethical approach to evangelism has never been more vital. This timely study examines some of the concerns raised by critics, then sets out key principles for ethical evangelism. It argues that ultimately, evangelism will respect the person when Christians are themselves grounded in the love of God and seeking to become ever more Christlike disciples.
