Evangelism: A Reformed Debate by Rev. John Kennedy, D.D. and Rev. Horatius Bonar, D.D.
A reprinting of material never before found in one volume. While Dr. Kennedy’s critical review of the Moody-Sankey missions, “Hyper-Evangelism – Another Gospel, Though A Mighty Power,” is not unknown, here it is accompanied by Horatius Bonar’s retort entitled “The Old Gospel – Not Another Gospel but the Power of God unto Salvation,” and Kennedy’s further rejoinder “A Reply to Dr. Bonar’s defence of Hyper-Evangelism.”
The matters covered here are urgent for the Reformed Church: How is the church to grow? May scriptural principles be set aside in order to reach a greater audience? Or is the church to cleave fast to the Word, trusting only in the Lord of the harvest for blessing? We believe that Dr. Kennedy’s incisive analysis of what was an innovation in his day is hugely relevant to our own. Includes index.
