    Throughout the history of the Christian church, two narratives have constantly clashed: the imperial logic of Babel that builds towers and borders to seize control, versus the logic of Pentecost that empowers glocal missionaries of the kingdom life. To what extent are Westernized Christians today ready for the church of the Pentecost narrative? Are they equipped to do ministry in different cultural modes and to handle disruption and perplexity? What are Christians to make of the Holy Spirit's occasional encounters with cultures and religions of the Americas before the European conquest?Oscar Garc’a-Johnson explores a new grammar for the study of theology and mission in global Christianity, especially in Latin America and the Latinx third spaces in North America. With an interdisciplinary, transoccidental, and narrative approach, Spirit Outside the Gate offers a constructive theology of mission for the church in global contexts.Building on the familiar missiological metaphor of outside the gate established by Orlando Costas, Garc’a-Johnson moves to recover important elements in ancestral traditions of the Americas, with an eye to discerning pneumatological continuity between the pre-Columbian and post-Columbian communities. He calls for a rerouting of theologyÑa realization that theology cannot make its home in Christendom but is a global creation that must come home to a church without borders.
