About-

The book explores the unique contribution of Pentecostal/Charismatic mission from the beginning of the twentieth century. The first part considers the theological basis of Pentecostal/Charismatic mission thinking and practice. Special attention is paid to the Old Testament, which has been regularly overlooked by the modern Pentecostal/Charismatic movements. The second part discusses major mission topics with contributions and challenges unique to Pentecostal/Charismatic mission. The book concludes with a reflection on the future of this powerful missionary movement. As the authors served as Korean missionaries in Asia, often their missionary experiences in Asia are reflected in their discussions.

Endorsements & Reviews-

"For anyone who wishes to understand this transforming current [of the Pentecostal movement] within contemporary Christianity, the present work will prove invaluable. . . . Here is a valuable contribution to modern missiology, for which those who belong to the Pentecostal or Charismatic tradition, and those who do not, should equally be grateful."
--from the Foreword by Andrew F. Walls
Honorary Professor, University of Edinburgh


". . . what I would consider a SUMMA MISSIOLOGIAE PENTECOSTALIS . . . a deeply biblical, theological, rich and balanced book."
--Stephen Bevans, SVD
Louis J. Luzbetak, SVD Professor of Mission and Culture
Catholic Theological Union, Chicago


"Written by two Pentecostals who are Korean by birth and world Christian by vocation, this surprisingly comprehensive book offers unparalleled insight into the what, the why, the where, the how, and the so what of Pentecostal mission in the twenty-first century."
--Jonathan J. Bonk
Executive Director: Overseas Ministries Study Center,
New Haven, USA


"Not only do the authors bring an Asian perspective and flavor into the emerging literature on Charismatic and Pentecostal Christianity, they also bring a unique combination of openness to listen from other contexts and traditions and firmness in the
Pentecostal tradition."
--Lalsangkima Pachuau
Asbury Theological Seminary, Kentucky, USA
