Chapter Summary

This chapter provides a basic introduction to Amos Yong's involvement in the theology and science conversation. In order to illustrate Yong's three-fold perspective, the chapter begins by outlining his rationale for engaging in the religion-science dialogue. It then highlights Yong's perspectives on the implications of the particularities of Pentecostal hermeneutics for the contemporary theology and science conversation. This explanation is followed by an overview of the metaphysical connections Yong employs to bridge the Pentecostal imagination and the language of science. The chapter concludes with a sketch of Yong's proposal for a pneumatological theology of creation.
