Wholly concerned about the whole Gospel

Much is sometimes made about the debate in evangelical circles about the relative importance of evangelism (telling people the good news about Jesus) and social action (caring for peoples physical needs). However, I wonder if this is sometimes a false dichotomy. If we really do care about people and genuinely value them as created
by God then we will care about the whole person, and so be equally concerned about evangelism and social action.
