This book contends that, given the contemporary situation, evangelism needs to elicit people's interest and curiosity before presenting them with the claims of Christianity. Evangelism as information communication will not make sense to people who do not have the necessary framework to interpret what they are hearing. Ambiguous evangelism as an 'interest arouser' can provide the trigger points that will encourage people to enquire for themselves about the Christian faith.
