About-

This is a collection of articles from various church backgrounds and theological viewpoints. It reaffirms the necessity and urgency of a pneumatic missiology. It does not speak of God’s saving mission as originating simply from God; it highlights the central role of the Spirit in the effective mission of the church.

Endorsements & Reviews-

The contributors in the volume ask how a pneumatological imagination and a charismatic praxis can empower Christian witness in a pluralistic public square. Herein is an ecumenical contribution to a robust vision of Pentecost and Third Article Theology inspired by the Indian experience but for the third millennium global context!

—Amos Yong, PhD, Professor of Theology & Mission, Fuller Theological Seminary, Pasadena, CA

Addressing burning issues surrounding the role of the Holy Spirit in Christian witness, this compendium reaffirms the urgent necessity of a pneumatic missiology and the significance of a missional pneumatology in bearing witness to Jesus Christ in a pluralistic world. I highly recommend it for reading to every serious student of Christian mission in a pluralistic world.

—Roger E. Hedlund, PhD, Chief Editor, Oxford Encyclopedia of South Asian Christianity, & Director Emeritus, Mylapore Institute for Indigenous Studies

This volume is timely and rich. In interfacing the new pneumatological missiology with the pluralistic world without reducing the mission of the Father in the Son, the colume also exemplifies the new majority world Christianity which is characteristically spiritual and missionary.

—Lalsangkima Pachuau, PhD, J.W. Beeson Professor of Christian Mission & Dean of Advanced Research Programs, Asbury Theological Seminary, Wilmore, KY, USA

What a vital subject for today’s church! We too often neglect aspects of biblical truth, and our life and witness are thus impoverished and weakened. I warmly welcome this book’s focus on mission and the Holy Spirit, and hope that its insights and challenges will be heard and heeded.

—David Wenham, PhD, Former Vice Principal and New Testament Lecturer in Wycliffe Hall, Oxford, and in Trinity College, Bristol
