The book attempts to examine the evangelical preaching done by the indigenous preacher K. Lalhmingliana and his team called El-Bethel Evangelistic Team. It is an attempt to prove an assumption that the preaching of Evangelical preaching is more attractive than that of the Conventional Pastoral preaching of the Church and has created negative attitudes between the preaching of El- Bethel Team and the traditional Church preaching.
Against all the negativity; the author asserts that the creativity, commitment and thoughtfulness of K. Hminga and his team has enriched the church and helped it to move forward for the extension of the Kingdom of God. People did not reject the preaching of the Pastors and Elders, as a result of the preaching of K. Hminga. Ecumenism was restored among the churches due to the ministry of El-Bethel Team.
