Evangelism and the Sovereignty of God

by J. I. Packer     |     Book Summary


Author: J.I. Packer
Publisher: InterVarsity Press
Date: 1961
Pages: 122


In Evangelism and the Sovereignty of God, author J.I. Packer tackles an essential question with regard to Evangelism: Why should we share the gospel with others if God is sovereign over salvation? Put another way, since God elects from before the foundation of the world those whom he will save, what is the point in sharing the gospel? Won’t the elect be saved either way?

If God is in control of everything, can Christians sit back and not bother to evangelize? Or does active evangelism imply that God is not really sovereign at all? J. I. Packer shows how both of these attitudes are false. In a careful review of the biblical evidence, he shows how a right understanding of God’s sovereignty is not so much a barrier to evangelism as an incentive and powerful support for it. With over 100,000 copies in print, Evangelism and the Sovereignty of God is truly a classic that should be read by every Christian.
