Evangelism: For the Care of Souls (Hardcover)
Evangelism is the heart of pastoral care. In Evangelism: For the Care of Souls, Sean McGever reminds ministers that announcing--and reannouncing--the good news of Jesus is central to pastoral care. The gospel rightly belongs at the start of a Christian's life, but its role does not end there. It is the balm and cure of our hearts for all of life. We must all be evangelized and re-evangelized. Avoiding a simplistic, manipulative, or guilt-inducing message, Evangelism: For the Care of Souls presents a vision and strategy for ministers to evangelize in a way that is refreshing, biblical, and sustainable.
