Hypocrisy in Evangelism?

I am taking a course entitled “Issues in Evangelism” this semester. One of the texts Paul Chilcote’s The Study of Evangelism: Exploring a Missional Practice of the Church.

This is a pretty powerful quote (from page 12):

Evangelism is possible only when the community that evangelizes – the church – is a radiant manifestation of the Christian faith

How do we expect the world to desire that which God desires when we do not epitomize it ourselves?
