"[By] Garth Lean".
"One individual helping another towards faith is now perhaps the most neglected of all the ways which Jesus himself used and of which he left us many examples. While moving house recently, I came across the following manuscript, which was written during World War II, on a Suffolk farm. In it I tried to summarise what I had learnt about 'fishing for people' in the ten years since I had been, quite unexpectedly, 'fished' myself by the Oxford Group during my fourth term at university". -- Intro.

"Much of the literature on Christian communication deals with it without reference to the fast-changing world of communication as such. The argument of this book is that `skills without understanding and technique without theology' are of little value. That argument, however, is made on the assumption that `Christians have no immunity from the difficulties involved in any and every communication process .. So we need the best information and analysis available on how communication happens, recognizing that the mystery of dialogue with God in Christ will often as not elude our knowledge and skill as communicators. But that's not a reason for being less than expert. It only serves to make our expertise a little less arrogant". The book grew out of communication studies courses designed for students of theology, and covers a wide range of themes -- from what communication is and how it works through semiotics and rhetoric to homiletics and theology". -- back cover.

Notes
The author, who is director of the Institute of Evangelism at Wycliffe College, and rector of Trinity Anglican Church in Streetsville, attended the G-Code 2000 Conference in Kanuga, N.C. in September 1995. He particularly appreciated the comments of Raymond Fung who spoke about "two issues that continually vex discussions of evangelism in our Canadian church. The first is the distinction between presence and proclamation." ... "The second issue has to do with the confusion between evangelism and mission. Dr. Fung argued that evangelism must not be overburdened with mission because it cannot carry that weight".

"How do we commend the Christian faith to the non-believer, the undecided, or the lapsed ? .... Jesus announces the good news that the Kingdom of God -- God's merciful and healing power -- is at hand. His actions confirm, illustrate, explain the words: 'God's finger' heals, restores life, feeds, cleanses from sin, liberates from greed or lust. This I think, is Bishop Armstrong's point in relating evangelism and 'the underside of history', the world of the weak, the defeated, the 'nonperson'. Gutierrez puts the question in these terms: 'How to announce God as Father in a world where there are no brothers ?' Christians 'commend' the message -- illustrate it, explain it,confirm it, make it 'believable' -- when they become 'brothers' ('neighbor' is the word that Jesus used) of the suffering. In today's world, justice is the 'sign' that must accompany the word". -- Foreword, p. ix-x.

Notes
Article by an Episcopal cleric who was a newspaper reporter before ordination and who comments "I am amazed at how poorly we communicate what most of our parishes have to offer. Good parish publications can contribute significantly to church growth." "The goal of all our publications is to create uplifting, tasteful and inviting pieces of information that draw people into the life of the church family and mirror what the kingdom of God is all about."
