Guess Who? Quotes on Evangelism!

Here are some cool quotes on evangelism. Guess who said them?

“If we are engaging in the work of new creation, in seeking to bring advance signs of God’s new world into being in the present, in justice and beauty and a million other ways … then at the centre of the picture stands the personal call of the gospel of Jesus to every child, woman, and man.”

“The proper model is not (1) to see mercy as the means to evangelism, or (2) to see mercy and evangelism as independent ends, but (3) to see both word and deed, evangelism and mercy, as means to the single end of the spread of the kingdom of God.  To say that social concern could be done independently of evangelism is to cut mercy loose from kingdom endeavor.  It must then wither.  To say that evangelism can be done without also doing social concern is to forget that our goal is not individual “decisions,” but the bringing of all life and creation under the lordship of Christ, the kingdom of God.”

    The first one is in Tom Wright’s Surprised by Hope, page 236.

    Is the second one from Tim Keller?

    Yes, 1 is clearly Wright. But if 2 is Keller, why is he part of the Gospel Coalition? Not sure this view will be widely shared there…
