great bookJan 30, 2010
By L. E. Rushing
i have this book for the main text in my missions and evangelism class and it has really opened my eyes to the view of evangelism in america from the generation before me and my generation now. it covers a variety of topics including women in ministry, evangelism in the present day church, an exegesis of the great commission and more. i would definitely recommend it to an up and coming minister, a ministry student, or anyone wanting to learn more about evangelism under the "greater umbrella of missions" in a Christian life.

Ok, but not greatJan 25, 2013
By Samantha Wertz
Several articles were worthwhile, but many were out of date having been written in the 1980s even though the book was published in 2008. The world of missions is rapidly evolving at home and abroad, but this book leaves me wanting for relevant, timely reflections on the world today. There are other articles that are simply lacking such as the one about women which is just a few short pages and is more of a historical review than a scholarly engagement. If you're looking for a lively and relevant engagement of the theology and current issues of evangelism and mission, I'd recommend looking elsewhere.
I found this very usefulJan 02, 2014
I love this because it has so many different contributors in it. It really gave good perspectives for evangelism in a world that hates evangelism.
