What Is Evangelism?

A Little Book of Guidance

Patricia M. Lyons

Nov/2019, 96 Pages, PAPERBACK, 5 x 7

ISBN-13: 9781640652125



This Little Book of Guidance offers an engaging, entertaining, faithful, and contagious Episcopal vision for sharing the Christian faith as a way to go deeper in our own relationship with God. Readers will find a strong and uplifting argument that the Episcopal Church's theology, sacramental ministry, and commitment to justice social have an essential role to play in mainline Christianity and in the public square. Here is a blueprint for evangelism in today's world for every follower of Jesus.

Proceeds from this book will go to Sandy Hook Promise, the non-profit organization doing the brave work of the Newtown Families Against Gun Violence.
