Evangelism and the Sovereignty of God
Full Product Description
In this classic study, J. I. Packer shows how false both these attitudes are. In a careful review of the biblical evidence, he demonstrates how a right understanding of God's sovereignty is not so much a barrier to evangelism as an incentive and powerful support for it.

Evangelism & the Sovereignty of GodDiane Morrison, via The Good Book Stall
First published in 1961 and recently reissued, this slim volume deals with the apparently opposing ideas of evangelism and the absolute sovereignty of God, and also between the doctrine of election versus the universal offer of salvation issued by the gospel. The author does this by setting out in detail what is meant by God’s sovereignty – implicitly acknowledged by all who pray – and by evangelism – the delivering of a clear and complete message, and not the responsibility for a positive result, which is solely within the remit of the Holy Spirit. God is essentially a mystery, he tells us, and the human mind itches to solve a mystery and have it all sewn up, understandable and controllable, but no earth-bound human mind will ever fully comprehend the ways of God since they are so different from and far above our own. We are only required to be obedient. Clearly, Biblically and unambiguously written in the usual forthright Packer style, and thoroughly recommended.

'This book is for anyone who is beginning to wrestle with questions of how God's sovereignty can fit with any area of human responsibility. I've often recommended this book to faithful Christians who are confused about how they are to think about prayer, missions, giving - any area in which our efforts could be wrongly pitted against Godís own necessary action.' - Mark Dever, Senior Pastor, Capitol Hill Baptist Church, Washington D.C.
