Editorial Reviews

Discerning Reader
"A short but exceedingly powerful book. Packer shows that rather than precluding evangelism, God's sovereignty provides the most powerful incentive and support for it. . . . [C]ontains impressive depth and contains a thorough and satisfying treatment of the subject."
From the foreword by Mark Dever
"I've often recommended this book to faithful Christians who 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."
Todd Sauve
Whether you consider yourself a Calvinist, an Arminian, or somewhere in between, Evangelism and the Sovereignty of God will stimulate your thinking about evangelism and increase your desire to join God in his work. It is easy to see why InterVarsity Press has republished this book as one of its "IVP Classics."

I just finished reading Evangelism & the Sovereignty of God and found it very helpful. Mr. Packer writes clearly and concisely, helping his readers understand what the gospel message is and how God's sovereignty relates to evangelism. There was a lot of good food for thought and discussion.
