The evangelistic focus of the Southern Baptist Convention has diminished, creating unprecedented challenges.
In Fuel the Fire, Chuck Kelley intends to start a conversation. A denomination accustomed to the inevitability of growth is in the grip of decline. By remembering the evangelistic strategies and core convictions that have strengthened the Southern Baptist Convention since its humble beginnings, and by cultivating the theological focus that enhances modern-day evangelistic engagement, readers will find new urgency in carrying out the work of evangelism. Kelley emphasizes that strategies are important; however, our efforts are in vain apart from a stirring of the Holy Spirit.
