In Evangelism and the Openness of God, Vaughn Baker argues that a dynamic concept of God as articulated in open theism better serves the evangelistic mission of the church than does conventional theology. Open theism affirms an ontology of love as opposed to power, and it focuses on God’s kenosis in creation, allowing for the authentic freedom of creation influenced by divine persuasion. God’s genuine temporal relationship with creation–one that is open, synergist, and non-coercive–provides a new perspective for evangelistic activity. In this volume the author has made a valuable contribution to the integration of new developments in theology and evangelism.
