Fackre on “Acts Evangelism”


Evangelism in the apostolic sense as practiced by Peter and John, Acts evangelism, is the conjoining of word and deed. It is neither a deedless word nor a wordless deed but word in deed, in the context of the deed. The signature of the Spirit is seen where evangelists give visibility to the Vision by a miracle of Shalom done to wounded bodies, and audibility to the Word by a bold witness to broken spirits.
