Chapter Summary

In this chapter, the author explores the ways in which Amos Yong's theology of religions engages the concerns of Christian ecumenism and how his pneumatology responds to the development of worldwide Christianity. The thesis of the chapter is twofold: first, the context for Yong's ecumenism and theology of religions is the human diversity of Pentecost and second, divine hospitality in the Spirit is the foundation for Pentecostal ecumenism and interfaith dialogue at the level of practice and belief. After considering the contemporary theological contexts, Yong's religious and academic formation, and his theological method with regard to the subject matter, attention is given to the four main topics of the chapter: human diversity, divine hospitality, ecumenism, and the theology of religions.

Keywords:Amos Yong; divine hospitality; human diversity; interfaith relations; Pentecostal ecumenism; pneumatology; theology of religions; worldwide Christianity
