If you enjoy reading theological books or have ever thought about the best way for Christians to approach evangelism and social action, Melvin Tinker’s Salt, Light, and Cities on Hills is the next book you should check out. This book is especially important in our current world, where Christians often discuss how social action correlates with evangelism. Do you ever wonder how civic duty relates to the spreading of the Christian gospel? If so, Tinker’s book is a good choice.
It was interesting reading about the interconnection of evangelism and social action in the church. The author backs up his views with good documentation, and uses interesting Bible passages to demonstrate his points. I enjoyed how Tinker used The Sermon on the Mount and parts of Isaiah as some of his examples illustrating the relationship between evangelism and social action. If you like reading Tim Keller, then you will enjoy Chapter 4, which discusses his ministries. Overall, the book is clearly written, with a nice pace. For readers who are fascinated with theology or are just looking for a thought-provoking book, this is a great read! You can buy the book here on Amazon.
