Evangelism and the Openness of God
The Implications of Relational Theism for Evangelism and Mission
Imprint: Pickwick Publications
"Theology truly matters to evangelism. Bad theology muffles the good news or confuses its audience. Vaughn Baker shows that open theology provides a better framework for evangelism than other theological alternatives. It makes better sense of the biblical witness and our deep intuitions about human freedom and responsibility. Baker presents open theology as truly winsome theology of evangelism."
--Thomas Jay Oord, Northwest Nazarene University
"This is a splendid contribution to the literature on evangelism. Drawing on the theology of open theism, it challenges conventional, populist (and Calvinist) wisdom and provides an alternative, theological foundation for evangelism. It also explores how we should practice the ministry of evangelism in ways that will be both effective and theologically salutary."
--William J. Abraham, Perkins School of Theology, Southern Methodist University
