Many Christians think of evangelism as an act of proclamation. And that is certainly what it is. But because they don’t feel called or able to proclaim the gospel, they feel they cannot contribute at all to the church’s evangelistic task. In The Best Kept Secret of Christian Mission, John Dickson points out that Christians promote the gospel in many ways: through prayers, money, the works of the church, godly behavior, public worship services, and daily conversation. Pastors who want to lead evangelistic churches should read this book, and so should parishioners who may be skittish about proclaiming the gospel but long to promote it.
