Chapter Summary

This chapter analyzes and situates the theology of Amos Yong as an ecumenical Pentecostal theologian who has come to address the late modern version of the classical philosophical problem of "the one and the many." It first provides a brief generalized account of late modernity and the significant burden it places on the late modern theologian. The middle portion of the chapter considers Yong's place in late modern theology as someone who although tending to pluralities, has made a trinitarian ontology the unifying center of his thought. The chapter then traces Yong's response to the dissolution of meaning by accounting for the pluralities of reality and corresponding theological methods or hermeneutics. It concludes with a general characterization of Yong's project amidst the challenges of the one and the many.

Keywords:Amos Yong; dissolution; globalization; hermeneutics; late modernity; Pentecostal theology; pneumatological metaphysics; religious pluralism; trinitarian ontology
