The Future of Evangelical Theology
:No longer does world Christianity converge in the Euro-American West-there has been a dramatic shift to the Global South, providing the occasion for a fresh consideration of the future of evangelical theology. Drawing on the day of Pentecost narrative, Amos Yong puts forward a bold proposal for a pentecostal-evangelical theology informed by the particular experiences and perspectives of Asian Americans. The outpouring of Christ's Spirit upon all flesh means that the evangelical church has to attend to the multiplicity of voices and contexts that shape the global theological conversation. Evangelical theology, Yong argues, is necessarily contextual theology, though in a way that does not sacrifice the gospel's universality. The Future of Evangelical Theology is a programmatic vision for theology that pays attention to the realities of gender, race, migration, economics, justice and politics. What emerges is a theology situated within a pentecostal Asian American context that bears on the future of the whole church.
