THE CHRISTIAN PERSUADER

This book deals with the author's sense of urgency for evangelism, and with some of the strategies by which evangelism can be made effective. The understanding of evangelism and the methods commended may be said to be, in general, those typified by the Billy Graham movement. The discussion shows a somewhat sophisticated knowledge of the literature and mores of our time. But the Christian message is related to these mainly in the terms of individual soul-saving and pietism which have come to be associated with evangelism of a revivalistic character. There is little depth of penetration into the religious and moral situation of today, and very little development of the full implications of the Christian gospel as relevant to it.
