Frances Adeney offers a comprehensive treatment of evangelism, showing that new evangelism theologies and methods are necessary in today's religiously pluralistic and secular contexts. By understanding different approaches to evangelism and accepting the views of others on this crucial topic, the church can move forward with a more graceful approach to sharing God's good news with the world.
