“Far too often we're a happy and hope-filled people as long as our churches are prospering, as long as we have a seat at the cultural and political table. But it's highly unlikely we'll invite the world--other races and creeds and lifestyles--around our own kitchen table.  We're of the world but somehow not in it.”
Elliot Clark, Evangelism as Exiles: Life on Mission As Strangers In Our Own Land

“We must recognize that the apologetic force of our preaching isn’t always that our message is more believable than another, but that it’s more desirable. In evangelism, we don’t simply make a logical case, but a doxological one. We aren’t just talking to brains. We’re speaking to hearts that have desires and eyes that look for beauty. We’re not merely trying to convince people that our gospel is true, but that our God is good. Over the years I’ve tried to move away from cold, structured arguments into exultations of praise. From giving evidence for the resurrection to reveling in its glory. From merely explaining why Jesus is needed to showing why he should be wanted. From defending the Bible’s truthfulness to rejoicing in its sweetness. Preaching the gospel requires propositional truths. Believing the gospel requires historical facts. But when we preach, others should see how those facts have changed our lives. They should hear us singing with the Negro slaves, “I’ve found a Savior, and he’s sweet, I know.” They need to feel the weight of glory. That’s because believing the gospel—like preaching it—is worship. Which makes praise integral to our preaching and turns our priestly ministry into delight!”

“As freedoms slip away and suffering draws near, we must not be known as an exasperated people always ready to give an answer for our protest and grievance”
