About-

This welcome addition to the study of missions describes the phenomenal global impact of the Assemblies of God foreign missions program, which still, today, has received remarkably little recognition even in missionary circles. At the same time the study provides an account of the influence J. Philip Hogan exercised on the direction of the Division of Foreign Missions during his tenure as Director over the crucial thirty-year period when the movement grew from a small number of nondescript congregations to a global association of indigenous national churches. The distinct emphases of Hogan's pneumatological missiology with the establishment of an independent local church as its goal and Spirit-filled, dedicated missionaries as key in the process, is described in its practical outworking on the mission fields. This challenging personal biography and testimony is also an inspiring account of how the Holy Spirit superintends the work of world evangelization.

Endorsements & Reviews-

Douglas Petersen, Assistant Professor of Inter-Cultural Studies at Southern California College, Costa Mesa.
