Barna has a new book out about expectations and definitions/models for evangelism and it’s not pretty.
We’ll receive the book soon, at which time we’ll write more, but for right now, we can already tell you that there has been a sea-change in our culture about the political correctness of evangelism. We’d love your thoughts on how we manage to make a radical shift before we completely lose the whole concept to some kind of Star Trek “Prime Directive” version of evangelism. (“Observe, but do not interfere.”) Please — if you have any ideas about how we help the church be the church for the uninformed, untold parts of the planet, please speak up while there’s still time.
Advance tip: For more background on this, see this article, entitled, “Almost Half of Practicing Christian Millennials say Evangelism is Wrong:”
