Mission Shaped Evangelism
Full Product Description
Mission-Shaped Evangelism is a landmark book that will renew our understanding of what the gospel - literally ‘the good news about Jesus’ – is for today’s cultures. It begins with a key challenge – do we believe God speaks in the cultural context, or only in the Christian tradition?
Part One- Listening to God in the cultural context explores the radically changing culture in which the church exists today, the rise of new spiritualities, the secularisation of society and religion’s increasingly dubious public image.
Part Two- Listening to God in the Christian tradition looks at key periods in Christian history as responses to cultural changes, from the ancient pagan world to modernist faith. What can we learn from the lessons of the past?
Part Three moves from theory to practice and tells great stories where innovative evangelism is taking place – from supermarkets to festivals to the internet.
Steve Hollinghurst is Researcher in Evangelism at the Church’s Army Sheffield Centre and has written on new spiritualities.
Mission Shaped Evangelism by Steve Hollinghurst was published by Canterbury Press in October 2009 and is our 12663rd best seller. The ISBN for Mission Shaped Evangelism is 9781853118425.

Mission Shaped EvangelismJim Currin, via The Good Book Stall
Steve is a mine of information and very articulate in the way he puts it over. Here in his first major work he covers a vast range of topics re the Gospel in contemporary culture. Collecting facts and figures, research information, and a wide range of helpful source material he argues that even evangelism needs to be more mission shaped. By this he means engaging with the new spiritualities and 'Today’s Temples and Market Places', not in terms of open air preaching but real engagement with people and issues on the ground. The whole premise is probably summarised on p168, 'cross cultural evangelism is not about changing the clothing of an explanation of Jesus' death, but finding which parts of the whole story are "good news" within each culture and starting from these to explore the rest'. I warmly commend it.
