Missions in the Age of the Spirit
by John V. York

Dr. York surveys the mission theme present throughout Scripture, which he sees as the lens of continuity that brings the Bible into focus. God’s plan has always been a redemptive blessing of the nations. York challenges believers to join the mission of God (missio Dei) in His redemptive pursuit of the nations through the power of the Holy Spirit. What is the task of the church for the future? Dr. York answers: “Let all who contemplate Christ’s mission be filled with the Holy Spirit, be prepared to the fullest extent possible, be confident of divine blessing, and then run to the battle. And run to win!”


“John V. York’s Missions in the Age of the Spirit is an excellent introduction to Pentecostal missiology. Grounded in Scripture, cognizant of history, and attentive to best missionary practices, this book should find a welcome home in the library of every Pentecostal minister.”—George O. Wood, General Superintendent of the Assemblies of God
