Resources on Evangelism

AETE members are active scholars and/or practitioners of evangelism who are deeply concerned with the faithful proclamation of the gospel and making disciples of Jesus Christ. Over the years, they also have produced material that have laid the groundwork for how evangelism is understood today. Many of them are also available to discuss their work.

Below is a list of current members, a brief description of texts they have authored, and links to other resources (such as blogs or podcasts) and their social media when available.
