In the spring of 1991 the LOGOS Institute's Curriculum Development Committee commissioned two pieces of research to assist in responding to the need for educational materials in the area of Evangelism. .... The two pieces of research thus include statistics, personal stories, book reviews, and assessments of workshops of other programs available to equip people for evangelism". -- Intro.

Notes
"Perhaps one of the most significant contributions of the Decade has been that it has pulled evangelism out of the shadows and forced us to talk and think about it." "There has also been a greater acceptance that evangelism is a ministry in its ownright. No longer does the word evoke the automatic response: `Everything we do is evangelism.' There is awareness, to be sure, that other ministries of the church will do much to affect the integrity and effectiveness of our evangelistic efforts, but the ministry itself -- getting the story out and inviting outsiders in -- is not so frequently confused with or identified with these other ministries". "We speak of `post-Christendom' and `post-modernity', understanding that culture no longer leads people into our churches. The Judeo-Christian narrative no longer has a monopoly on the spiritual and ethical formation of Canadians". "One of the major challenges for the immediate future remains that of continuing to develop a distinctly Anglican style of evangelism that will not only respect the dignity of those we seek to reach, but also engage them with an informed and articulate explanation of the Gospel and a sensitive invitation to join up with the people of God and learn to follow Christ".
