The Altar Call

Journal of Biblical Counseling 2:2

In this article, D. Clair Davis discusses the American “altar call” and its prevalence in many evangelical churches. Davis explores the issues of urgency, emotion, and the inability of sinner to respond as key questions to consider in an evaluation of the “altar call.” Davis ends the article by advocating a “steady diet of evangelistic sermons” as a way to make the “altar call” superfluous.
