  • What/who is “Post-Modern”
    • Skepticism about the Reliability/Trustworthiness of Rationalism
    • Cynicism about Language, Perspective and Grand Narratives


  • What is “The Gospel”
    • As a Reasoned Argument
    • As a Grand Narrative


  • Traditional “Tract” Summary of the Gospel
    • Ontological Presumptions Embedded
    • Claims Made (Historical, Metaphysical, etc.)

  • Apologetics-Informed Summary of the Gospel
    • Pre-Evangelism: Dealing with Presuppositions

  • Compare: John 4, Jesus & Samaritan Woman at the Well
    • Evidence of Spiritual/Existential Vacuum
    • Testimony: Personalizing the Narrative


  • Other Suggestions / Observations / Criticisms?
