Editorial Reviews Review

The mystery and seeming paradox between evangelism and God's sovereignty has been causing disagreements and confusion among Christians since the beginning of the 20th century. In Evangelism & the Sovereignty of God, J.I. Packer reveals that a faulty understanding of the Bible leads to the assessment that these doctrines are foes rather than friends. By debunking the erroneous view that "robust faith in the absolute sovereignty of God is bound to undermine any adequate sense of human responsibility" toward evangelism, the author adeptly moves through the obstacle course of tricky theology with ease and grace, allowing the reader a more complete understanding of the mystery of salvation. Packer manages to tackle an overwhelming piece of doctrinal truth and contain it within the subject of evangelism by concisely determining what evangelism is and what it is not. "It is our widespread and persistent habit of defining evangelism in terms, not of a message delivered, but of an effect produced in our hearers." This error is corrected when one is renewed in his or her knowledge of the sovereignty of God. Of course, fault is found on the other side as well, with those who so heavily rely on God's sovereignty to save the lost that they are lazy in obeying God's command to share the Gospel. Packer insists that love for God, at the very least, should draw one out of this stagnation and that the coupling of these seemingly diabolical doctrines will make one bold in speech, patient in God's timing, and prayerful for the salvation of others. --Jill Heatherly --This text refers to an alternate kindle_edition edition.

From AudioFile

While not "deep" theology, this is an erudite and thoughtful discussion of evangelism in the context of God's sovereignty. Or to put it another way, here is a title that explains the work of God in the affairs of men. The author, who is a well-known evangelical author, theologian, and pastor, adroitly explains in understandable terms the interdependence of the work of God and man in the process of evangelism. Grover Gardner does a splendid job in reading this work. His voice is pleasant and engaging. He speaks with authority but is neither arrogant nor condescending.
