On Evangelism.

mweI finished Elaine Heath’s The Mystic Way of Evangelism last Friday.  I intended to blog about it; I thought about buying copies of it to give away to fellow clergy.

My friend Paul Gravley has blogged about the book, so instead of my attempting to do so as well as he has done, let me just steer you here.

  1. She begins with Billy Abraham’s definition of evangelism: “the holistic initiation of people into the reign of God as revealed in Jesus Christ.”

    Using the work and stories of several mystics (Julian of Norwich, Hans Urs von Balthasar, Pheobe Palmer, Father Arseny, Henri Nouwen, and others), Heath weaves together an alternative story of how the church lives out our mission in the world.
