Chapter Summary

Ralph Del Colle agreed immediately to write a Roman Catholic assessment of the work of Amos Yong and the state of Pentecostal scholarship. Ralph's exceptional knowledge of Pentecostalism, his longstanding relationship with the Society for Pentecostal Studies, his involvement in Roman Catholic-Pentecostal dialogue, his personal acquaintance with Amos Yong, and his professional career as a systematic theologian made him the single-most expert of his generation for the assignment. However, during the early phase of writing, Ralph was diagnosed with angiosarcoma, an aggressive cancer, and although committed to finishing the project, he succumbed to his illness on June 29, 2012, before he was able to complete his work. This brief tribute to his work sketches the parameters of his engagement with Pentecostal scholarship, in general, and with Amos Yong's work in particular.
