The Spirit Renews the Face of the Earth
Pentecostal Forays in Science and Theology of Creation
Imprint: Pickwick Publications
"This volume of essays is a testimony to the fact that not only has Pentecostal theology come of age, but that Pentecostals are now equipped theologically to facilitate dialogue with science and creation care. Dr. Yong, the leading Pentecostal constructive theologian, has put together an impressive interdisciplinary team of scholars to offer exciting reflections on distinctively Pentecostal creation theology and practice in sympathetic and critical dialogue with scientific perspectives. This is a landmark volume."
Professor of Systematic Theology, Fuller Theological Seminary and Docent of Ecumenics, University of Helsinki
"This collection of essays represents a significant contribution to the study of the intersection of science and Pentecostal faith. The essays are well written, historically informed, and lay the groundwork for further research in this important, and oft-neglected, part of the conversation between Christian faith and scientific developments. Students of Pentecostal history and theology also have a great deal to learn from this collection of insightful essays."

"This book reveals a new frontier in Pentecostal scholarship. The contributors take us where we have not gone before: probing the wonders of creation and the Spirit, providing a new grammar for the intersection of science and religion, and re-visioning eschatology. The intersection of Pentecostalism and science may yet prove to be a most fruitful and creative synergy, breaking open new paradigms for the twenty-first century."
