Evangelism has changed in the past quarter century. The ways Christians share, how often they engage in spiritual conversations and their goals for sharing faith are different. And in a culture where relativism is the norm and fewer believe in absolute truth, the attitudes and responses of those who hear the Gospel have also evolved. Technology and rapid cultural shifts may have altered the face of evangelism, but the call to bring Christ to the nations remains.
Barna, in partnership with Lutheran Hour Ministries, has co-produced a book entitled, “Spiritual Conversations in a Digital Age.”
Spiritual Conversations in the Digital Age offers insights on topics like: shifting definitions and practices of evangelism over the past 25 years, perceptions of faith sharing, a data-based profile of a good evangelist, infographics and other data visualizations, and more. Technology and rapid cultural shifts may have altered the face of evangelism, but the Great Commission remains. This new report tracks what has changed so that leaders can coach Christians to be effective in sharing the unchanging Good News.
