Sharing Good News

Handbook on Evangelism in Europe

Edited by: Gerrit Noort, Kyriaki Avtzi, Stefan Paas

A tool for renewal, Sharing Good News is a comprehensive and timely contribution to the field of evangelism that takes full measure of the distinct challenges and opportunities that face Christians in contemporary Europe. Carefully and systematically developed in a years-long consultative process, the volume includes: Expert and esteemed authors from around Europe and from a variety of confessional traditions; A systematic, ecumenical framework for understanding evangelism in the present context; Contributions keenly tuned to the particular challenges raised by secularization, migration, and interreligious and cross-cultural encounter; Probing theological work on the meaning of evangelism in relation to mission, ecclesiology, and spirituality; and Eight case studies that illustrate best practices and new paradigms in evangelism. For students, professors, clergy and practitioners, Sharing Good News offers important keys to revitalizing Christian evangelism in the lives and discipleship of Christians across Europe. *** "Our hope and aspiration are that through its illustrated, contextualized, fresh approaches to evangelism, this book will prove to be an important tool for theological facilities of academic institutions across Europe, as well as for churches and mission agencies offering programmes on missiological formation." --Metropolitan Dr. Geevarghese Mor Coorilos, Moderator, Commission on World Mission and Evangelism [Subject: Christianity, Religious Studies]~
