Publisher’s Description

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 in this new edition to the popular IVP Classics 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.

•New edition of a classic work on divine sovereignty and human responsibility

•Challenges extreme views on both sides of the issue

•Outlines a proper incentive and support for evangelism

Includes a Foreword by Mark Dever
