There must be a solid content in our evangelistic proclamation of Christ. It is our responsibility to set Jesus Christ forth in the fullness of his divine-human person and saving work so that through this “preaching of Christ” (Romans 10:13-14, 17) God may arouse faith in the hearer. Such evangelistic preaching is far removed from its tragic caricature, all too common today, namely an emotional, anti-intellectual appeal for “decisions” when the hearers have but the haziest notion what they are to decide about and why.

John Stott, from Your Mind Matters, p. 66
