This course examines the current challenges and approaches to mission and evangelism in the secular and post-Christian regions of Western Europe and North America. It addresses the extensive problem of nominality, assesses its extent and progress, and provides biblically informed reflection. Nominality’s causes are identified within the life of the individual, the institutional church, and society, with special reference to the impact of urbanization, secularization, and pluralism. The impact of postmodernity on society, the church, and higher education is analyzed. Strategies being used to reach nominal Christians and postmodern society are examined and evaluated.
