Abstract Though bilateral dialogue between Lutherans and Pentecostals at first glance looks unpromising, their already entangled histories suggest that the time is ripe to proceed. Doctrinal concerns also suggest mutual profit from dialogue. The Spirit has long since disappeared in Lutheran theology despite its importance in Luther’s theology, and the result has been the chronic Lutheran errors of scriptural inerrancy, rationalism, and moralism. Likewise, the absence of the Father in Pentecostalism has contributed to the loss of trinitarianism, the prosperity gospel, andjudgmentalism. The presence of the whole Trinity at Jesus’s baptism suggests a paradigm for Christian baptism and theology that could once again unite what the churches have allowed to fall apart.
