God-Centered Evangelism: A Presentation of the Scriptural Theology of Evangelism
Kuiper, R. B.
‘Here’, writes John Murray, ‘we have the theology of evangelism, and evangelism without scriptural theology has lost its moorings. R.B. Kuiper’s writing, as his preaching and lecturing, was always characterized by clarity and simplicity’. The book begins with God as the author of evangelism, and shows the relation of his love, election, covenant and commission to it. There are chapters on scope, urgency, motive, aim, agent, approach, means, message, method, effectiveness and triumph of evangelism. Dr. Kuiper also deals with zeal for co-operation in, and resistance to evangelism. A student of B.B. Warfield, on whom he made a deep impression, Dr. Kuiper had a distinguished career in the pastoral and teaching ministry. He was a President of Calvin College and Professor of Practical Theology at Westminster Theological Seminary.
