 About the Book 

In this fresh and exciting re-reading of Acts—which some have termed the “Gospel of the Holy Spirit”—twenty-three scholars and practitioners of Christian mission and ministry reflect on key texts from the perspective of the contemporary apostolate. Reflecting the best available scholarship, the authors consistently make connections between the biblical text and their own personal narratives. From contexts as varied as church-planting among Asian immigrants to archeological work at the University of Pennsylvania, they intertwine their personal narratives with the practice of theology in a myriad of postmodern contexts. Under titles such as, “From Doingness to Beingness,” and “Peter’s Conversion: A Culinary Disaster Launches the Gentile Mission,” this book takes on the hard practical questions that confront missioners within the North American context as well as overseas.
