The Holy Spirit in Mission: Prophetic Speech and Action in Christian Witness
The church has been called to participate in God’s mission in the world. But without a robust, biblical sense of the Spirit’s action, how can we be sure we’re fulfilling that call? Gary Tyra employs a biblical theology of the Holy Spirit to deepen and inform our understanding of life as the church, the people of God.
