I found this infograph at Pardot.com, and it opens up some windows (some worrisome ones too) on evangelism, the evangelist and conversion. As some of you know, I have written about conversion in two publications — Turning to Jesus and with Hauna Ondrey Finding Faith, Losing Faith. In the first book especially I dealt with the psychology and sociology of conversion, including the worrisome features of encapsulation and manipulation, and here we have an infographic that seems to spell some of these elements out.
What do you see here for evangelism? What concerns you? How has the “soterian” gospel been shaped to work in such settings? Can the apostolic gospel, what I call King Jesus gospel, be fitted into this set of ideas?
Do you see revivals or youth rallies using these “techniques”?
