Promoting the Gospel

In this subject, we will explore the various ways the content of the Christian “gospel” has been understood through history, examine the Bible’s teaching about how the gospel advances in the world, and what this means for local churches and individual believers today. The subject aims to challenge our presuppositions through an examination of history in order to provoke a fresh examination of the New Testament and deeper consideration of evangelism in the contemporary context.
