Chapter Summary

The particular goal of this chapter is to investigate ways in which resources within Amos Yong's work may enrich, challenge and develop the &t;emerging&t; discipline of theology and film. In turn, resources within this discipline are also examined as to how they may contribute toward Yong's work and subsequent engagements with film. Yong's ideas are correspondingly explored in conjunction with three key dialogue partners who have considered similar themes in relation to film: Craig Detweiler on the grounds of foundational pneumatology and cinema, Robert K. Johnston concerning the hermeneutics of theological engagement with film, and Gaye Williams Ortiz regarding world cinema and interreligious practices. Considering theology and film's future prospects Johnston asks, "how might our interdisciplinary conversation be deepened by using the resources of theology and its rich tradition?" It is in this light that Yong's Pentecostal work is brought into relationship with the visual elements of contemporary culture.

Keywords:Amos Yong; contemporary culture; Craig Detweiler; Gaye Williams Ortiz; hermeneutics; interreligious practices; pneumatology; Robert K. Johnston; theology; world cinema
