Chapter Summary

The Trinity plays an important role in Amos Yong's constructive theological projects. In Spirit-Word-Community, Yong uses the Trinity to develop a Pentecostal approach to theological hermeneutics. In Hospitality and the Other, he gains inspiration from the Trinity for his proposal for a theology of religious hospitality. On the doctrine itself, his most significant contribution consists in what might be called a pneumatological trinitarian theology an approach that starts with the Spirit. This chapter outlines and evaluates his engagement with this doctrine in respect to biblical pneumatology, pneumatology and the Trinity, Oneness and trinitarian Pentecostalism, and theological hermeneutics. The chapter also critically and constructively engages Yong's work on the Trinity with the goal of building on his effort to develop a Pentecostal and pneumatological trinitarian theology.
