Hardback
How does one go about doing Christian theology? Amos Yong explores this question by proposing a pneumatological-trinitarian hermeneutic. Its thesis is that interpretation and theological method is an ongoing tri-logue of Spirit-Word-Community - of interpretive subjects as imaginative, obligated and relational agents; of the horizons of the interpreter, the biblical and ecclesial traditions, and the world; and of founding, historical, and ongoing communities of faith and inquiry. Ecumenical perspectives on the topics of pneumatology (the doctrine of the Spirit), metaphysics (foundational pneumatology), epistemology (the pneumatological imagination), and trinitarian theology converge in this book to move forward the present discussion of theological method.

- Publisher Contents: Preface; Introduction: on theological hermeneutics and theological method; Foundational pneumatology: toward a trinitarian theology and metaphysics: Beginning with the spirit: biblical motifs for a foundational pneumatology; Penumatology and trinitarian theology; Toward a foundational pneumatology: metaphysics and ontology; The pneumatological imagination: epistemology in triadic perspective: The imagination as pneumatic activity; The pneumatological imagination and truthful discernment; The pneumatological imagination and normative engagement; Theological interpretation: the trialectic of spirit-word-community: The acts of interpretation: spirit; The objects of interpretation: word; The contexts of interpretation: community; Provisional conclusions; Bibliography; Indexes.

- Publisher During the author's journey from Pentecostalism to Trinitarianism he became aware of the need for a consensuality on the subject of theological hermeneutics. This study is the author's perspective on mediation in Christian theology.
