If God is in control of everything, can Christians sit back and not bother to share their faith? Or does active evangelism imply that God is not really sovereign at all?
J. I. Packer shows 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.
InterVarsity Staff Bob Chenoweth writes, “The tension between God's sovereignty and our will continues and will continue to always be difficult. Packer tackles this subject with biblical insight and wisdom. We come away from the book not only with more insight about the topic, but a greater sense of who God is.”
Pastor Mark Dever writes that questions of God’s sovereignty are common: “Faithful Christians are confused about how they are to think about prayer, missions, giving--any area in which our efforts could be wrongly pitted against God's own necessary action. Packer introduces us to clear truths, handles Scripture with exemplary care, and supplies us with just the right amount of illustrations and application."
Evangelism and the Sovereignty of God is truly a classic that should be read by every Christian looking to share their faith in line with God’s will.
