Christianity's center of gravity has tilted from the Euro-American West to the global South. Driving this shift is the emergence of charismatic renewal movements among Protestant, Roman Catholic, and Orthodox churches. This reshaping of the theological landscape has inspired prominent theologian Amos Yong to construct a cutting-edge theology for the twenty-first century. Within a Pentecostal and evangelical framework, Yong's Renewing Christian Theology is a primer on how to think theologically in a global context. Students seeking an introduction to systematic theology will not only discover the treasures of the tradition but will also encounter a revolutionary pastoral theology that bridges Pentecostal, charismatic, evangelical, and ecumenical traditions. Yong's theological imagination prioritizes Christian hope, gifts of the Spirit, baptism, sanctification, and healing. Renewing Christian Theology unveils an inclusive theology conversant with contemporary theological movementsatheology and science, contextual theologies, intercultural theologies, theology and disability, public theologies, theology and the arts, and theological aesthetics. Renewing Christian Theology is theology for the twenty-first-century church.

Here at last is a vibrant theological text that systematically addresses the big intellectual challenges confronting 21st-century Pentecostals and charismatics. Every chapter bursts with constructive ideas, bringing biblical exposition and theological themes to bear on the doctrinal statements that define the Churchs long renewal. -- William K Kay, Professor of Pentecostal Studies, University of Chester "Yong reprioritizes the order of classic theological reasoning, beginning with eschatology, in order to emphasize Christ-centered and Spirit-empowered Christianity." --Don Thorsen, Professor of Theology, Azusa Pacific University "Amos Yong delivers a forward-looking and pneumatologically grounded systematics of Renewal demonstrating its contribution to the wider theological academy and the global church." --Sammy Alfaro, Assistant Professor of Theology, Grand Canyon University "This remarkable book introduces and creatively reconstructs a Pentecostal summa in sympathetic and critical dialogue with the best of Christian heritage. No one interested in Pentecostal and Renewal movements can ignore this work." --Veli-Matti KArkkAinen, Professor of Systematic Theology, Fuller Theological Seminary and Docent of Ecumenics, University of Helsinki, Finland "Yong's work brilliantly articulates what the world of Christian theology is fast becoming: the dawning reality that the 'regions beyond' have become the new center of Christianity. Renewing Christian Theology is a twenty-first-century expression of what it means to have 'good news for all people!'" --Byron D. Klaus, President, Assemblies of God Theological Seminary, Springfield, Missouri "No doubt this book will be a landmark work in Renewal Theology and spark a spirited conversation about the role of Pentecostal theology in ecumenical and interreligious dialogue." --Peter C. Phan, The Ignacio Ellacuria Chair of Catholic Social Thought, Georgetown University Personally, I will be using this text both to freshen up my standard systematics well as making use of it for my Pentecostalism course. This will be a valuable resource on both counts. -- Ben Pugh, Cliff College, England -- The Journal of the European Pentecostal Theological Association On the whole this is an exciting project, which offers much for the future, as Pentecostal and charismatic theology comes to maturity. It charts a way that many emerging theologians from these traditions can follow, in bringing together Christian experience and theological exploration into harmony. -- Graham Tomlin -- Evangelical Quarterly Although the intended audience of this textbook is seminarians, the volume will also be appreciated by scholars both in and outside the renewalist movement, especially those interested in engaging the best of Pentecostal thinking today. Yong offers a systematic theology to the whole church that is as deeply Pentecostal as it is unwaveringly ecumenical. -- Cheryl Peterson -- Anglican Theological Review
