Product Description

The Spirit of Creation: Modern Science and Divine Action is the fourth volume of the groundbreaking Pentecostal Manifestos series. Amos Yong argues not only that pentecostal thought has a place in scientific discussions but also that pentecostal-charismatic insights into the dynamic presence and activity of the Spirit of God in creation have something important to add to the discourse. Interacting with psychology, sociology, evolutionary science, cosmology, and various other scientific fields of study, Yong's Spirit of Creation offers a significant contribution both to pentecostal thought and to the ongoing dialogue between theology and science.

Publisher's Description

Is a pentecostal-charismatic worldview defensible in light of contemporary science? In The Spirit of Creation Amos Yong demonstrates that pentecostal thought does indeed have merit in scientific contexts. What’s more, he argues that pentecostal-charismatic views regarding the dynamic presence and activity of the Spirit of God and the pluralistic cosmology of many spirits have something important to add to the broad discussion now taking place at the crossroads of science and religion.

Interacting with many scientific fields of study — including psychology, sociology, evolutionary science, cosmology, and more — Yong’s Spirit of Creation demonstrates the significance of pentecostal ideas to the ongoing dialogue between theology and science.

Author Bio

Amos Yong is professor of theology and mission and directorof the Center for Missiological Research at FullerTheological Seminary, Pasadena, California. His other booksinclude The Spirit Poured Out on All Flesh andHospitality and the Other.

Endorsements

Amos Yong's preeminent role among Pentecostal-charismatic theologians has long been acknowledged. His Spirit of Creation now reveals him as one of the most exciting constructive theologians at work in the contemporary religion-science dialogue. Some will resist his openness to science, others his openness to the real activity of the Spirit. But Yong's beautifully argued proposal may just be the closest that one can come to reconciling science, orthodox Christianity, and a Spirit-centered theology. Indispensable reading for anyone interested in the relationship of theology and science today.
Philip Clayton
-Claremont School of Theology

This welcome new volume from the pen of Amos Yong brings together two major contemporary movements in theology: the growing, worldwide interest in religion and science, and the growing sophistication and extent of outstanding Pentecostal theology. Yong covers many of the key issues in theology and science today, while always providing a learned and Holy Spirit┬ľoriented theological perspective.

Yong covers many of the key issues in theology and science today, while always providing a learned and Holy Spirit–oriented theological perspective."

Perspectives on Science and Christian Faith
"Yong has well accomplished his goal of illustrating how Pentecostals can offer valuable contributions to the theology/science dialogue."

Theology
"Once again theological scholarship is in Yong's debt because this volume is another example of his acumen and broad vision. . . . Provides a distinctly Pentecostal interjection into the discussion and outlines possible trajectories that can be developed further."

International Bulletin of Missionary Research
"Yong argues convincingly that Pentecostalism, which has emerged in the context of the modern world, can offer a distinctive response to that world through more vigorous Pentecostal scholarship. . . . This careful study, grounded in gracious openness, presents challenging possibilities toward developing pneumatological approaches in theological conversations with scientific data about the nature of the universe and its ongoing creation."
