Efforts to construct a Christian theology of religions have inevitably stumbled on the Christian scandal of particularity-the historical Jesus of Nazareth. What, however, if we began by focusing on the universal presence and activity of God in the world as symbolized by the Holy Spirit? Yong develops just such a pneumatological approach to religions, drawing, by way of resource, on the Pentecostal-charismatic experience of the Spirit. This book thus invites Pentecostals, charismatics and other Christians to conceive of how a pneumatological approach to religions can invigorate the wider ecumenical conversation. At the same time, it also brings recent Pentecostal-charismatic scholarship into dialogue with a broader audience, including those interested in philosophical theology, world religions, global spiritualities, and comparative religion and theology.ContentsPreface Acknowledgments Abbreviations Ch. 1 Introduction Ch. 2 The Christological Impasse in Christian Theology of Religions Ch. 3 A Pneumatological Approach to the Religions Ch. 4 Discerning the Spirit(s): Toward a Comparative Symbology of Divine Presence Ch. 5 The Pentecostal-Charismatic Movement: A Framework for Understanding Ch. 6 On the Way to a Pentecostal-Charismatic Theology of Religions Ch. 7 Resources for a Pentecostal-Charismatic Theology of Religions Ch. 8 Pentecostalism and Umbanda: A Test CaseCh. 9 Theological Questions Instead of a Conclusion Bibliography Index of References Index of Authors Index of Subjects
