Evangelical Alliance on Confidently Sharing the Gospel

The latest report in the 21st Century Evangelicals Series from the Evangelical Alliance UK highlights research about evangelism.

The full report – Confidently Sharing the Gospel? – is available as a pdf here.

This is what the EA says:

This research looks at how people became Christians, finding that almost three quarters came to faith before age 20. The report explores what works well in evangelism, as well as the fear factors which hinder us from sharing the gospel. It shows the need for us to build confidence in sharing our faith so that we grasp opportunities rather than shying away. The findings also remind us of the need to intentionally build relationships with non-Christians, and to share the reason behind our good deeds. This means sharing the gospel in a way that defies the negative stereotypes that put many people off Christianity.’
