How Then Shall We Tell

Studies in Christian Communication

INTRODUCTION: THE MEANING OF COMMUNICATION

ABOUT THIS BOOK

What do we mean by Christian communication? 

Primarily we mean communicating the Gospel of salvation and the Kingdom of God to men and women who as yet do not know it. We also mean communicating all Biblical truth, especially to those who stand in need of it, whether they are believers or not. In this sense communication has two aspects,

(i) the setting out of truth to a person or persons, and

(ii) the receiving of that truth by a hearer or hearers.

In one sense a communicator may attempt to pass on truth to another, but the willingness of that other person to receive the truth will determine whether or not communication is effected. Of course the communicator has succeeded—even though his message is rejected—if he can bring the reality of the message to his hearer. The onus is not on him to make the hearer respond.
