Gary Tyra’s The Holy Spirit in Mission, reviewed by Malcolm Brubaker

So, who should read this book? The last mentioned group certainly. Western evangelicals are facing many challenges of a changing cultural and spiritual terrain and Tyra challenges us to follow biblical and contemporary examples of Spirit-empowered Christianity. Even within the Pentecostal tradition from which this reviewer comes, there is a need to revisit founding impulses that launched Pentecostalism a century before. But others may profit from this study: non-Pentecostal missiologists, biblical scholars, and church historians seeking to understand this renewal movement. In our 21st century historical context we in the West are as much a mission-receiving culture as a mission-sending one. Tyra’s work helps us all to see where we need to go.
