The task of evangelism ('gospeling') is no less demanding and difficult today than it was in
the time of Peter and Stephen and Paul. It is also in no less need of creative adaptations to
audience. Perhaps what we need more of is the boldness (Acts 2:29; 4:13, 29, 31; 28:31)
that came upon them through a fresh blowing of the Spirit. Perhaps the absence of
resurrection theology in much of gospeling today is to blame for the lack of boldness. We
need to recover more of the early Christian resurrection gospel and we need less of the
theodicy-like focus Anselm and the Reformers gave to atonement theories.
