In the Days of Caesar is a constructive political theology formulated in sustained dialogue with the Pentecostal and charismatic renewal--one of the most vibrant religious movements at the beginning of the twenty-first century. Amos Yong here argues that the many tongues, practices, and gifts of renewal Christianity offer up new resources for thinking about how Christian community can engage and transform the social, political, and economic structures of the world.Yong has three goals here. First he seeks to correct stereotypes of Pentecostalism, both political and theological. Secondly he aims to provoke Pentecostals to reflect theologically from out of the depths of their own Pentecostalism rather than merely to adopt some framework for theological or political self-understanding. Finally Yong shows that a distinctively Pentecostal form of theological reflection is not a parochial activity but has constructive potential to illuminate Christian belief and practice.This book's engagement with political theology from a Pentecostal perspective is the first of its kind. Yong anticipates that the dialogue between Pentecostal theology and political theology will be mutually informative and transformative, opening up uncharted trajectories in both fields.
