Here’s another free book available for your Kindle. I am not familiar with this particular title but (1) it is free, (2) it does seek to show the importance of one’s theology in practical terms and (3) it explores the man-focused theology of Charles Finney in contrast to a more reformed preacher. Sounds like a great read to me! A special thanks to Shaun Tabatt for the heads up! You really should be following him on Twitter if you are looking for more book deals.
Here’s the Amazon product description:
Are evangelistic methods neutral? Or is there a connection between what we believe and how we evangelize?
In “Theology Drives Methodology”, Karl Dahlfred examines the theology and methods of Charles Finney and John Nevin, demonstrating how the different beliefs of these two men led them to radically different conclusions about the best methods to use in promoting the Gospel. Finney’s beliefs led him to use high-pressure revival meetings to induce conversions. Nevin’s beliefs led him to emphasize preaching, catechism, and pastoral care as the means that would produce conversions through the everyday ministry of the local church. Which man’s methods were correct? Your answer to that question all depends on what you believe about God, man, conversion, and the nature of the Gospel itself.
After an historical and theological survey of Finney & Nevin’s beliefs and methods, the author draws out implications of each man’s views and makes applications for the contemporary church.
