Chapter Summary

This chapter begins with an introduction to the main contours of Amos Yong's theological proposal, lifting up Yong's rationale for pursuing the development of a distinctively Pentecostal theology of religions through concepts foundational for its formulation, pneumatological imagination, and foundational pneumatology. Then, it discusses Yong's theology of religions in the context of key theological categories, for example, its trinitarian robustness, pneumatological basis, and Christological breadth. Next, the chapter explores its implications for ecclesiology and soteriology, noting the nuanced nature of the tasks of the churches and of Christian salvation, including implications for evangelism and dialogue. Finally, it suggests practical and pastoral applications of Yong's theology of religions.
