The publication of William J. Abraham’s The Logic of Evangelism in 1989 marked a turning point in the field and practice of evangelism. Almost thirty years later the book still provokes discussion as it stimulates both theorists and practitioners to comprehend evangelism as initiation into God’s reign. Combining theological insight and historical analysis, Abraham’s groundbreaking work remains the primary text to set the stage for how evangelism may be conceived.

In these timely essays written by both theologians and church leaders, The Logic of Evangelism Revisitedtakes a critical and yet appreciative look into the ways Abraham’s work still speaks to the church in today’s world. The authors, coming from a wide array of backgrounds, show how The Logic of Evangelism remains a key text into the twenty-first century.
