In this paper I examine the evangelical task of proclaiming the Christian kerygma in the modern world. First, I contextualize proclamation within the overall task of witnessing to the Gospel. Next, I show how the early Christian kerygma was shaped by the apostles according to their particular audience. Following this, I look broadly at the modern American audience and suggest some important points of emphasis and de-emphasis in our shaping of kerygma for them. Finally, I suggest a method for sharing the Good News that begins to integrate the results of this discussion.
