Chapter Summary

Even the casual reader of Yong's work and of most of Pentecostal scholarship can typically identify quickly three major emphases: a focus on the Holy Spirit, on the context of Pentecostalism, and on the transformation of the Christian life. In Yong's own terminology, the author can speak of the pursuit of pneumatology, Pentecostalism, and Renewal. While these areas may be seen as the three broadest dimensions of Yong's theological focus, this emphasis should not be misunderstood as an isolation of three particular theological loci. Instead, the essays present the realms of pneumatology, Pentecostalism, and Renewal as the interwoven dimensions of a distinct methodological perspective not unique to Yong, although it currently finds its clearest expression in his work, but that is characteristic of the new face of Pentecostal scholarship.

Keywords:Amos Yong; Christian life; Holy Spirit; Pentecostal theology; Pentecostalism; pneumatology; Renewal theology
