Editorial Reviews


"Every Christian has an implicit theology: a set of beliefs about God and about what God was doing in Jesus Christ. To communicate this good news--the gospel--to others is every believer's privilege and responsibility. Sam Chan's book helpfully shows how to do this in a way that fits our twenty-first-century multicultural contexts."

--Kevin J. Vanhoozer, Research Professor of Systematic Theology, Trinity Evangelical Divinity School

"This practical guide not only provides a biblical description of evangelism but also includes helpful strategies for gospel sharing in everyday situations. This book will be helpful for all who desire to see those who are hostile to God become followers of Jesus."

--Ed Stetzer, Billy Graham Distinguished Chair, Wheaton College

"This is an important book. In it, one of Christianity's smartest voices, Sam Chan, shows us how to bring our secular neighbors into a lifegiving encounter with the gospel. Highly recommended for use in universities, seminaries, and churches."

--Bruce Riley Ashford, Provost and Professor of Theology and Culture, Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary

"If you are looking for an evangelism textbook with biblical foundations, strong theology, real-life illustrations, passion for the heart of God, and tools to move people out into a skeptical world with the good news of Jesus, look no further. Sam has done a masterful job of taking evangelism from concept and theory to practice and action."

--Kevin G. Harney, author, Organic Outreach trilogy; founder and visionary leader, Organic Outreach International

"Sam Chan has written the evangelism manual we've needed. Evangelism in a Skeptical World combines cultural understanding, theological acumen, and practical apologetics to equip the church to bear witness to the gospel in a secular age. It is lucidly written and full of real-world wisdom. I expect it to be a featured text for ministry students for many years to come."

--Joshua D. Chatraw, executive director, Center for Apologetics and Cultural Engagement, School of Divinity, Liberty University
