Yes, evangelism is an uphill battle, but if the contemporary church shows a lack of success at reaching the “nones,” it is in some measure due to the fact that we tacitly have accepted modernity’s severed vision of reality. We have separated our intellect from our faith. As a result, too many pew-sitting Christians glide through life on the wings of a detached anti-intellectualism, while too many apologists have become content with presenting a cerebral body of information in defense of a passionless faith. Our evangelism will remain ineffective so long as we do not succeed in reconnecting our thinking to our living — our apologetics to our discipleship.—Bob Perry (from, That “Nones” May Not Perish)
