Mission after Pentecost – The Witness of the Spirit from Genesis to Revelation by: Amos Yong


Leading scholar Amos Yong articulates a biblical understanding of mission that is informed by three current streams of academic conversation: theological interpretation of Scripture, pentecostal theology, and missiology. By bringing Pentecostal theology into the Bible and mission conversation, Yong identifies the role of the divine spirit in God’s mission to redeem the world. The author works through the entire Bible from Genesis to Revelation, emphasizing the global missiological imperative: “People of all nations reaching out to people of all nations.” The result is a pneumatological theology of the missio Dei–the mission of the triune God–that is thoroughly scriptural and surprisingly relevant for enabling appropriate Christian witness today. Sidebars include voices from around the globe who help the author put the biblical text into conversation with twenty-first-century questions, offering the church a fresh understanding of its mission and how to pursue it in the decades to come.
