It is no secret that the Pentecostal movement has had an incredible impact on the shape of worldwide Christianity in the past century. It is estimated that Pentecostals and charismatics comprise approximately a quarter of Christians worldwide, and the numbers are only expected to grow, especially in Asia, Africa, and Latin America. These developments create a need for theologians and students to understand the theological framework of this burgeoning movement.

In The Spirit Poured Out on All Flesh, Amos Yong develops a robust Pentecostal theology and, perhaps more importantly, brings this theology into dialogue with other theological traditions. Yong outlines a pneumatological approach to soteriology, ecclesiology, theology of religions, theology of creation, and the nature of God—particularly in regard to trinitarian formulations vis-a-vis oneness theology.

This is more than an introductory systematic theology, however. The first chapter provides a fascinating survey of worldwide Pentecostalism, examining how various theological issues and questions are being addressed “on the ground.” Further, the author argues that because of Pentecostalism’s global origins, its theology can be a great gift to Christianity at large, and he proposes that it can play a large role in shaping a truly global theology.

Yong is one of a very few Pentecostal theologians today who are seeking to understand the relationship between Pentecostalism and global issues, and he is perhaps the only one to do so in a sustained manner. In this volume, Yong offers a Pentecostal perspective on ecumenism, world religions, and culture with a view toward developing a distinctively Pentecostal global theology. Whether one agrees or disagrees with his methodology and conclusions, Yong’s contributions cannot be ignored.

The Spirit Poured Out on All Flesh is an invigorating book. Reflecting upon global Pentecostal experiences and practices, Yong has taken his pneumatological imagination to new depths of insight in his quest for a more robust trinitarian theology. The result is a multiperspectival reformulation of Christian theology that allows fresh winds of the Spirit to blow through old doctrines.

—Dale T. Irvin, academic dean and professor of world Christianity, New York Theological Seminary

Yong is one of the most creative and promising of the young evangelical/Pentecostal theologians. He has an impressive command of the sources, indomitable energy, and a willingness to venture into new territory. This book, on a subject of increasing urgency to the whole Christian community, is his best to date. Yong is taken seriously within evangelical/Pentecostal circles and increasingly within Christian theology as a whole, so this book is sure to make a mark.

    Greetings, I believe Pentecostalism will cover the globe before the Coming of the Lord for His Church. Some Christian circles deny the gifts and the supernatural power of God through human beings. In reading 1 Cor. 12, we see that the Trinity is involved in the gifts of the Spirit. And Scripture clearly states that the manifestation of the Spirit is given to all in the Body of Christ. As a Pentecostal believer, and a Trinity believer, and a believer in Tongues, I see that this movement of the Spirit is a sign of the last-last days before the Jesus opens the heavens. And finally, Pentecostalism began on the day of Pentecost and it will end at the day of the Coming of the Lord. So, this book among other books on Pentecostalism, is a good reference for reading to those who do not believe or have experienced the Spirit on a more divine and supernatural dimension. The little I read seems to try to explain this amazing movement. But time will be the best witness when in the next 5 to 10 years the Lord will do the un-expected to win people to the Kingdom of Heaven. Signs in the heaven and on earth. These signs will follow them that believe. . . That's a promise. Thank you. Eis Cristos Al Sosa
