Toward a Pneumatological Theology : Pentecostal and Ecumenical Perspectives on Ecclesiology, Soteriology, and Theology of Mission Paperback / softback

Edited by Amos Yong

Paperback / softback

Description

Pentecostalism has been known much more for its religious experientialism than for its theology.

During the past generation, however, Pentecostals have taken up the task of reflecting theologically from their experience of the Spirit of God.

This book represents Pentecostal theology at its best, being thoroughly and unabashedly Pentecostal on the one hand, and yet being deeply ecumenical on the other.

Within this dual Pentecostal and ecumenical framework, it offers Spirit-centered theological perspectives on the doctrine of the Church (ecclesiology), the doctrine of the salvation (soteriology), and the ministry and witness of Christians to the world (theology of mission).

Toward a Pneumatological Theology is a sign that Pentecostal theology has come of age.

It furthers the discussion of what it means to do Christian theology by starting with the Spirit of God, thereby demonstrating that Pentecostalism may indeed have something unique and distinctive to offer theologically to the larger Christian Church.

At the same time, it will also be of interest to those who wish to begin understanding Pentecostalism on its own terms as well as to those who have followed closely the history and theology of the movement.
