In Evangelism & the Sovereignty of God, J.I. Packer reveals that a faulty understanding of the Bible leads to the assessment that these doctrines are foes rather than friends.

By debunking the erroneous view that robust faith in the absolute sovereignty of God is bound to undermine any adequate sense of human responsibility toward evangelism, the author adeptly moves through the obstacle course of tricky theology with ease and grace, allowing the reader a more complete understanding of the mystery of salvation.

Packer manages to tackle an overwhelming piece of doctrinal truth and contain it within the subject of evangelism by concisely determining what evangelism is and what it is not. It is our widespread and persistent habit of defining evangelism in terms, not of a message delivered, but of an effect produced in our hearers. This error is corrected when one is renewed in his or her knowledge of the sovereignty of God. Of course, fault is found on the other side as well, with those who so heavily rely on Gods sovereignty to save the lost that they are lazy in obeying Gods command to share the Gospel.

Packer insists that love for God, at the very least, should draw one out of this stagnation and that the coupling of these seemingly diabolical doctrines will make one bold in speech, patient in Gods timing, and prayerful for the salvation of others. --Jill Heatherly
