During his time at Oxford, a friend asked Paget Wilkes one day, “I say, Paget, do you tackle everyone who comes into your rooms about his soul?” “Yes,’ answered Paget, “if he comes in alone.”
Wilkes was convinced that even the humblest Christian is responsible for bringing men to Christ. “If we have been forgiven and know it, if we have been made new creatures in Christ Jesus, then we…are commissioned to minister this same salvation unto men and to witness of all these things which Jesus our Savior has revealed to us. Hallelujah!”
The primary need of the mission field today, as it was in Wilkes’ time, “is not for a highly educated and cultured pastorate, but for red-hot evangelists, filled with the Spirit and with the Word.” Join Wilkes as he expounds the living Christ from Scripture and reveals the power of the Holy Spirit to uphold and enable converts and evangelists alike.
Alpheus Paget Wilkes (1871–1934) was educated at Oxford before joining the Church Missionary Society in 1897 as a missionary to Japan. In 1903, he cofounded the Japan Evangelistic Band, which was devoted to personal holiness and robust evangelism. His other books include The Dynamic of Faith, The Dynamic of Redemption, and The Dynamic of Life.
