If God is in control of everything, can Christians sit back and not bother to evangelize? Or does active evangelism imply that God is not really sovereign at all?
J. I. Packer shows in this new edition to the popular IVP Classics how both of these attitudes are false. In a careful review of the biblical evidence, he shows how a right understanding of God's sovereignty is not so much a barrier to evangelism as an incentive and powerful support for it.
With over 100,000 copies in print, Evangelism and the Sovereignty of God is truly a classic that should be read by every Christian.
About the Author
A short but exceedingly powerful book. Packer shows that rather than precluding evangelism, God's sovereignty provides the most powerful incentive and support for it. . . . [C]ontains impressive depth and contains a thorough and satisfying treatment of the subject.--Discerning Reader
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 God's own necessary action. Packer introduces us to clear truths, handles Scripture with exemplary care, and supplies us with just the right amount of illustrations and application.--From the foreword by Mark Dever, Senior Pastor, Capitol Hill Baptist Church, Washington, D.C.
Whether you consider yourself a Calvinist, an Arminian, or somewhere in between, Evangelism and the Sovereignty of God will stimulate your thinking about evangelism and increase your desire to join God in his work. It is easy to see why InterVarsity Press has republished this book as one of its IVP Classics.--Todd Sauve, 1340mag Books (1340magbooks.com), April 2009 --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Also, Packer shows that in order to ensure God's results in our efforts to evangelize, we need to use God's methods to share God's message. These are powerful and much needed correctives in our day, when the gospel is all too often edited to become the message that people want to hear rather than the one they need to hear and when the methods used are the ones that cultural marketing strategies recommend rather than the ones that God has commanded in his Word.
Packer does a great job of destroying the false caricature created by Arminian flavored groups of reformed theology's understanding of evangelism. Far from sitting back and not doing anything and leaving everything to God, Calvinism/Reformed theology is the only perspective that can consistently go forward with the unadulterated gospel in the timeless and faithful methods of witness laid out in Scripture with the full assurance that God will bring the increase. Arminian theology and its modern hybrids are always tempted and in practice usually act like evangelistic methods and message need to morph in order to bring people to the point of decision. Packer is careful to keep God's part (bringing the increase) and the Christian's part (sowing the seed) in evangelism clear.
Packer does this and much more and he does it all with a winsome and irenic spirit. This is, bar none, the best book written on biblical evangelism. It should be read by every Christian. Seven stars!

Packer takes the reader through issues such as sin, repentance and faith, showing that faith is a commitment to a new life, not just a mental assent. In the last third of the book he explores the significance of God's sovereignty to evangelism: how it does not remove human responsibility or the need for a personal response. He makes it clear that our only hope in evangelism is, in fact, the sovereignty of God, as is the security of the believer. In short that not only is there no conflict between evangelism and God's sovereignty, but that one cannot function without the other. God calls on all to repent and believe, and those who respond in faith are justified. The response is itself evidence of the sovereign call of God, and that call is expressed through evangelism.
This is a beautifully prepared and written book, very clear to follow and Biblically grounded. For anyone involved in telling others the Christian gospel it has very important things to say, and for the person exploring Christianity it is enlightening. Highly recommended.
this writer. It shows how the truth of Election is an encouragement
to evangelists and evangelising people that their work is not in vain.
