Item Description...
Overview
The Pentecostal movement has had an incredible impact on the shape of worldwide Christianity in the past century. Estimates are that Pentecostals and charismatics make up approximately one-fourth of Christians worldwide, and the numbers are only expected to grow. With these developments comes the need for thoughtful Christians of all persuasions to better understand Pentecostal theology. In fact, Amos Yong believes that Pentecostal theology can be a great gift to the church at large. Yong presents a thoroughly Pentecostal theology of salvation, the church, the nature of God, and creation. He also provides a fascinating survey of the state of worldwide Pentecostalism, examining how Pentecostal theology is influencing Christian churches in other countries.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
A pentecostal systematic theology  May 19, 2010
Amos Yong, J. Rodman Williams Professor of Theology at Regent University's Divinity School in Virgina, is certainly making a name for himself. Receiving his PhD from the prestigious Boston University, Yong is making head not just in fields of systematic theology, but also science and religion (see his Theology and Down Syndrome: Reimagining Disability in Late Modernity), inter-religious dialogue (Beyond the Impasse) and ecology (The Spirit Renews the Face of the Earth: Pentecostal Forays in Science and Theology of Creation). The Spirit Poured Out on All Flesh: Pentecostalism and the Possibility of Global Theology stands as Yong's attempt to bring together the new face of Global Christianity and the pentecostal theology that is so prevalent within the World Majority. Yong's attempt in this field is certainly another success!

He masterfully covers basic areas of systematic theology (soteriology, christology, ecclesiology, global theology, world religions, and ecology). In each of these areas, Yong joins the pentecostal (read pneumatic) and the global to persuade the reader that a pneumatological reading of Scripture and a global understanding of theological traditions is a must. Yong argues that too often the Spirit has been relegated to a lower status, if you will, among Christians of the West in late modernity. Yong believes that early Christians were much more pneumatic than we give them credit and as much can be gathered from his writing on ecclesiology (chapter 3). Furthermore, he writes that a Spirit-christology is much needed in our discussions of the incarnation and the eschaton (chapter 2). Often times the reader will feel the need to research and the people to whom Yong refers (both ancient and contemporary, known and unknowns) and this will truly give the reader a better reading experience. His work on the relation between other religions may offend conservative readers as he uses the parable of the Good Samaritan as a hermeneutical tool in understanding how we can learn from peoples of other faiths (chapter 6).

There can be moments where you may feel lost or confused, please note: this reading is not light, coffee-table reading. It is best to have an understanding of both Global theology and systematic theology before reading. Besides this warning, as with most of Yong's books, the covers are not extraordinarily brilliant, but the pages contained within certainly are. At the end of the book he writes an epilogue that shows how the fields of theology can be frustrating as he writes, "No doubt, many conclusions proposed here are already dated even as I finish this sentence, and the few valid points leave much unsaid" (p. 303).
 
RE: Sophisticated Theology for Pentecostals  Dec 30, 2005
Amos Yong provides a dense, penetrating, and constructive proposal for the future of academic pentecostal theology. Replete with thorough documentation and innovative analysis of both biblical texts and doctrinal hypotheses, this book is not for theological light-weights. This is not inch-deep theology; this volume represents the pinnacle of pentecostal erudition. May pneumatologial theology in this tradition forever prosper.

I heartily recommend this book to those not theologically faint-hearted...
