In his new book, Evangelism: A Biblical Response to Today's Questions, J. D. Payne responds to today's most commonly asked questions. Written in an engaging style with concise chapters, this book establishes a biblical, theological, and practical foundation for missional living.

Instead of a one-size-fits-all approach, this book provides the reader with healthy and clear parameters for sharing faith that can be applied to differing cultural contexts in today's globalized world. Some of the questions addressed include:

  • What is evangelism anyway?
  • What is the gospel?
  • What is repentance?
  • If God is in control, then why do we need to share the gospel?
  • What is election?
  • Does a loving God send people to hell?
  • What is the role of free will in salvation?
