Chapter Summary

The emphasis on Luke-Acts marks the biblical seedbed for Yong's theological enterprise and the foundation for Pentecostal theology. In this chapter, the author contends that Yong not only demonstrates ongoing Pentecostal persistence to embody the Lukan story, but stands as one of the most influential Pentecostal voices to bring this confidence to the current generation. Yong not only captures the current global Pentecostal explosion through Lukan lenses but implores Pentecostals (and indeed all Christians) to look yet again for a fresh visitation of the Spirit "to measure up with in the book of Acts." The chapter begins with Yong's contribution to the well-rehearsed discussion on women in Pentecostalism before it turns to less overt and less rehearsed motifs, namely Yong's fresh reading of the Lukan story as a theological foundation for reflection upon inter-religious hospitality, disability, politics, and immigration.
