If God is in control of everything, can Christians sit back and not bother to evangelize? Or does active evangelism imply that God is not really sovereign at all?
In this classic study, J. I. Packer shows how false both these attitudes are. In a careful review of the biblical evidence, he demonstrates how a right understanding of God’s sovereignty is not so much a barrier to evangelism as an incentive and powerful support for it.
In this book, Packer examines the relationship between God's Sovereignty and evangelistic methods. He begins with a detailed account of the sovereignty of God and how that should affect Christians in the way that they pray. He then shows, however, that belief in God's sovereignty, does not cancel out human responsibility. He gives us a chapter on biblical evangelism and the evangelistic message that needs to be presented. Finally, he concludes with a chapter in which he shows how belief in the sovereignty of God should affect evangelism. It should enhance evangelistic efforts, giving more confidence and strength to Christians in this matter. This is one of Packer's earliest works. Although only a short book it displays much of the clarity and precision for which Packer has become well known and respected. This is an excellent little book, which should help to clarify some controversial issues. If only some more Christians would get hold of it today before engaging in evangelistic outreach.
