Panicked, I told my mom right when I got into the car and she was just broken and sad because she had no idea that I would ever do something like that.

Over the years, there is a lot that has happened in the world and all the occasions, there were people who were left to tell the stories.

In reaction to the article on "Incarnational Apologetics," how does this approach impact the way evangelism is taught and acted out in daily life? How do you balance "incarnational" and "informational" approaches to evangelism? Is there a connection?
