eBook: The Countdown Has Begun




by Jay & Olgy Gary

Written in 1989, The Countdown Has Begun is the definitive history of the events which gave birth to “AD 2000 & Beyond” movement. “Countdown’s” subtitle, “The Story of the Global Consultation on AD 2000” reveals its true nature as a compendium of addresses from the AD 2000 Consultation in Singapore in January 1989. Chapter titles include, “The Journey of Cooperation,” “Dreaming Together Towards AD 2000,” “Cooperation in a Time of Change,” “The Spirit is Moving,” plus many more. A unique aspect of the book is a 14 chapter section of personal reflections by Jay Gary on the people and the events behind GCOWE 2000, including Bill Bright, Keith Parks, Ralph Winter, Thomas Wang and David Barrett. Besides addresses by Philemon Choi, Ron Cline, Paul Eshleman, Gino Henriques, and Keith Parks, “Countdown” includes significant documents by David Barrett, Luis Bush and Bill O’Brien which preceded and followed-up the Global Consultation.

In a snappy journalistic style, Gary highlights the successes of the Global Consultation, but also points out its shortcomings. As you look back in history, do you wonder whether world evangelization is on the right track? Purchase The Countdown Has Begun and consider whether AD 2000 was a God-given vision or a misguided fad.

“Very few times in history have so many Christian leaders representing so many points of view focused their attention on so specific a goal–the evangelization of the world by AD 2000. This is clearly the Holy Spirit speaking to the Churches….Read The Countdown Has Begun and catch the vision for the greatest ingathering the world has ever known.”
Dr. C. Peter Wagner, Fuller Theological Seminary

“God is undoubtedly summoning His forces for one last supreme effort to complete the task of world evangelism. The timeclock of the ages has been reset and it is ticking. The Countdown Has Begun just may be the first article in the charter of closure.”
Dr. J. Philip Hogan„ The Assemblies of God
