Christians and communities of faith today are rediscovering evangelism as an essential aspect of the church's mission. Many of the resulting books in the marketplace, however, have a hands-on orientation, often lacking serious theological engagement and reflection. Bucking that how-to trend, The Study of Evangelism
offers thirty groundbreaking essays that plumb the depths of the biblical and theological heritage of the church with reference to evangelistic practice. Helpfully organized into six categories, these broad, diverse writings lay a solid scholarly foundation for meaningful dialogue about the church's practice of evangelism.

"The wait has been worth it. Finally we have a collection of essays on evangelism to treasure that will only appreciate in value. The tone of the editors and the texture of their selections make this a book that will be invaluable for years to come."
— Fuller Theological Seminary
"In The Study of Evangelism Paul Chilcote and Laceye Warner bring together the writings of outstanding international scholars who have also engaged in evangelism through the church. This groundbreaking volume crosses the barriers of tradition and culture to engage in topics that cannot be ignored if the church is to truly be missional today. It is refreshing to have such a diverse range of issues and perspectives in a single volume. True to their goal, the authors combine the best of missiology and theological insights for serious students of evangelism."
