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 movements--theology 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.
Amos Yong (Ph.D., Boston University) is J. Rodman Williams Professor of Theology at Regent University School of Divinity, Virginia Beach, Virginia. His books include The Spirit Poured Out on All Flesh; Hospitality and the Other; Beyond the Impasse: Toward a Pneumatological Theology of Religions and Spirit-Word-Community: Theological Hermeneutics in Trinitarian Perspective. More information about Amos Yong is available on the Regent University website.
