One of the current challenges that confronts evangelists is the advent of critical theories such as critical race theory and queer theory. While these intellectual and cultural trends emerge from the academy, they drip down into popular culture and impact almost every part of life. Post Christian Europe is particularly vulnerable to this influence. This session will briefly summarise the origins of these critical theories before looking at how they directly affect the work of gospel proclamation. Practical examples will be given to illustrate the issues; we will then look at practical ways in which evangelists can navigate this culture and make the gospel accessible. In particular, we will look at the ‘tone’ of our evangelism and how we can share truth in this hostile and reactionary environment.
