Chapter Summary

This chapter offers possible direction for future engagement with Pentecostal scholarship and the contributions of Amos Yong. The future of Pentecostal scholarship is found not only among those involved in and seeking higher education but more significantly among the congregations. The emergence of a relevant pedagogy among Pentecostals emerges largely at the interchange of individual efforts relating to congregational life and denominational history and tradition. Yong writes of Pentecostal theology as counter-cultural by emphasizing not withdrawal, rejection, or isolation of Pentecostal studies but by pressing Pentecostal scholarship to find itself in what most represents the movement and its theology. Yong's most contested characteristic is possibly the way in which he employs and revises traditional Pentecostal concerns and concepts for the purpose of advancing both the Pentecostal agenda and the world of theological scholarship.
