One of the most significant obstacles to the gospel in these times is the
postmodern rejection of the concept of ultimate truth. Establishing a basis for
a non-negotiable truth has become a necessary precursor to an effective
presentation of the gospel. Without this foundation, Christianity is regarded
as merely another option in mans search for God.
Another challenge to Christian evangelism is the astonishing loss of our
cultural Christianity. Changes in immigration patterns and a massive reworking
of our educational system have produced a new generation with little or no
knowledge of the Bible or the most basic Christian teachings.
Overcoming these challenges requires a new look at how we present the truth
of a unique and exclusive gospel. This book provides a broad assortment of
insights and trench-tested tools for doing the job. Here are a few:
Listen, and find common ground for making points of contact.
Engage in persuasive interaction.
Reason is still legitimate, but don't overuse argumentation.
Use the stories of the Bible.
Acknowledge worship as a powerful appeal to postmoderns.
