In this brief talk, I respond to the evangelistic crisis in America by revisiting evangelical approaches to evangelism. Taking the radical perspective of Jesus’ approach to evangelism, I uncover practices that are countercultural to American Christianity.
This talk was adapted from content in my new book The Unbelievable Gospel: Say Something Worth Believing. If it’s of interest, there are a ton of resources at www.unbelievablegospel.com
