Types of Pentecostal Theology : Method, System, Spirit, Hardback Book

Types of Pentecostal Theology : Method, System, Spirit Hardback

Part of the AAR ACADEMY SER series

Description

Christopher A. Stephenson offers the first critical study of the major theologians of pentecostalism, one of the fastest growing and most influential religious traditions in the world.

Drawing on the scholarship of Myer Pearlman, E. S. Williams, French L. Arrington, Simon K. H. Chan, Frank D. Macchia, Amos Yong, and others, Stephenson establishes four original categories that classify recent pentecostal theologians' methodologies in systematic/constructive theology.

The four categories are based on the arrangement of Biblical texts, the relationship between theology and Christian spirituality, doctrine concerning the kingdom of God, and pneumatology as a base for philosophical and fundamental theology.

Stephenson analyzes each methodological type, then suggests a pentecostal theological method that builds on the strengths of each.

He then offers his own, original contribution: an argument for a reciprocal relationship between pentecostal spirituality anddoctrine that follows the pattern of lex orandi, lex credendi, and develops a doctrine of the Lord's supper as a demonstration of this reciprocal relationship.

Types of Pentecostal Theology provides critical insight into such fundamental issues as the relationship between theology and philosophy, the dynamic between scripture and tradition, and similarities and differences between recent pentecostal theology and other currents in contemporary theology.
