Missionary John York is persuaded that God's desire to redeem and bless every nation on earth is the theme of the Bible; that it is, in fact, God's mission.
In Missions in the Age of the Spirit, Dr. John York takes us through the missio dei and three key areas: In Scripture--from the Pentateuch through Revelation; in the early church and throughout the centuries; and in the missions tasks and responsibilities of today and the future. In the final section, York guides believers into a fresh understanding of the definition, demands, and devotion today's missions efforts requires--and how close we are to fulfilling God's mission.
Follows the development of missions throughout Scripture from the Early Church through to the modern church. Includes two appendixes, selected bibliography, Scriputure index, and subject index.
