"This may indeed the most helpful book you will read on the missional purpose of the baptism in the Holy Spirit." From the Foreword by Dr. John V. York.
Why did Luke write the book of Acts?
In Empowered for Global Mission, missionary author, Denzil R. Miller contends that Luke's primary intent for writing is found in Acts 1:8, the "interpretative key" to the entire book. Miller says that Luke, under the Spirit's direction, wrote to call the church of his day, and ultimately the church of our day, back to its Pentecostal and missionary beginnings.
In proving this thesis, the author takes an in-depth look into the book, citing seven key outpourings of the Spirit in Acts and demonstrating how each contributes to the fulfilling of Luke's missionary and pneumatological purposes in writing. The author then proposes a "strategy of the Spirit" as revealed in the writings of Luke and Paul and offers it as a viable strategy for contemporary missions endeavor.
Empowered for Global mission is a must read for anyone interested in the role of the Holy Spirit in missions work today.
