Evangelism in the Inventive Age

Doug Pagitt

Doug Pagitt helps you to understand the changing context we live in "as a good place" for the Gospel as any time in history.  We live in changing times of significant cultural change. In the Inventive Age (the cultural turning following the Agrarian, Industrial, and Information ages) how people think has changed. This has created a new context for Evangelism.  For most Christians the issue of sharing their faith is a troubled endeavor. Very few are in a comfortable place of natural invitation, faithful integration, and hopefulness in sharing faith. Evangelism in the Inventive Age will create a new perspective on evangelism for the ordinary person who has extraordinary questions. Evangelism in the Inventive Age is for those who have deep questions about the validity of evangelism and for whom evangelism does not come naturally.
