"Picture a gigantic cruise ship filled with happy people.
"It's the S.S. Evangelical Gospel. In the midst of their fun and excitement, passengers have not noticed holes in the ship's side under the water line. Well-meaning leaders are attempting to plug these holes with new methods, technology, social activism and cultural savvy. All these are important, yet the structure of the ship remains compromised by years of neglect."
In this thoroughly revised fourth edition of the now classic Tell the Truth, Will Metzger reinstates the truth framework necessary for the survival of evangelicalism. Biblical illiteracy among evangelicals is on the rise. Theological discernment between truth and error is increasingly elusive. We need to be recalibrated not to the changing times but to the changeless gospel.
As useful as it is passionate, Tell the Truth will refocus and re-energize a whole new generation to communicate the whole gospel, wholly by grace, truthfully and lovingly.
Includes a study guide and new training materials for personal witnessing!
“he woos us in our blessings and warns us in our tragedies.” (Page 224)
“The crucial thing to remember in evangelism is the distinction between our responsibility and God’s. Our task is to faithfully present the gospel message by our lives and our lips. Any definition of our task that includes results is confusing our responsibility with God’s prerogative, which is regeneration.” (Page 56)
“All my questions could be boiled down to one: what was the way to witness that would be shaped by a high view of a Creator-Redeemer God who does not merely make salvation available but actually empowers a person to respond by repenting and receiving?” (Page 16)
“But some evangelicals are stretching the gospel to equate it to loving service. This may be a result of how the gospel has changed us, but social action, as important as that is, is not the gospel! It is a result of the gospel being lived out by caring for others.” (Page 27)
“they can end up dangerously misleading people by making the gospel simplistic.” (Page 85)
