The Mystic Way of Evangelism

Full Product Description

Elaine Heath argues that the church is in a dark night of the soul. It has thus lost its prophetic voice - its effectiveness in proclaiming the good news of redemption. Rather than resisting or decrying this state of affairs, the church, says Heath, ought to embrace its situation as a starting point for renewal of its vitality - and consequently, its witness. A solution is proposed in the wisdom and contemplative spirituality of the great saints and mystics - people such as Julian of Norwich, Ignatius of Loyola, Phoebe Palmer, Henri Nouwen, John Wesley and others.As our vision of God is renewed, mission is reenergized. This book brings fresh insights into the theory and practice of evangelism by examining it through the lens of the classic threefold path of purgation, illumination, and union. Different ways of thinking about evangelism are drawn from the lives and teachings of the mystics. Different ways of practicing evangelism are then proposed via narrative theology. The result is a holistic perspective, offering a corrective to programmatic and consumerist forms of evangelism so prevalent today.Here is a unique contribution to the discussion on evangelism in our post-modern world.
