Social Action and the Church’s Task of Evangelism / A journey in the Gospel of Mark
Imprint: Resource Publications
"Anderson provides a forthright and refreshing message to those Evangelical Christians who seek to address the stinging effects of poverty on all of God's children."
--Scott K. Wilderman, President/CEO of Career Resources, Inc.
"In Wasted Evangelism, Anderson reminds readers of the inextricable link between the gospel, evangelism, and God's heart for justice. Analyzing the Gospel of Mark, Anderson shows how the good news of Christ's gospel can be manifested as people pursue social action and respond to the needs of the poor and the oppressed. May the church be increasingly inspired in our evangelistic efforts while also responding to the needs of the least of these in our midst!"
--Mae Elise Cannon, author of Social Justice Handbook
"Chip Anderson challenges theologically complacent and inactive Christianity in its inattention to the poor and oppressed and challenges us all to advocate for the vulnerable--not for the sake of social action itself, but also as a necessary and authentic expression of witness and obedience to the Scriptures. This book goes a long way in dismantling the false dichotomy that often separates Jesus and justice or the gospel and social action."
--Ken Wytsma, author of Pursuing Justice
