About-

Amos Yong is the most prolific pentecostal theologian to date, and his published works are so many that it is difficult to find an amiable entry point into his thought. An Amos Yong Reader is the first introduction to Yong’s theology in his own words. It brings into one volume representative samples of the broad range of Yong’s scholarship, including theology of religions, religion and science, theology and disability, political theology, Luke-Acts, and theological method. Christopher A. Stephenson, perhaps Yong’s most insightful interpreter, provides an introductory essay that both orients readers to Yong’s extensive theological program and identifies the most important key to understanding Yong’s theology as his most neglected work, Spirit-Word-Community, a book with implications far beyond the boundaries of Pentecostalism. An Amos Yong Reader provides an overview of Yong’s thought and a starting point for more thorough study in any of the major themes in his expansive corpus.

Endorsements & Reviews-

“In the days when mainstream theologians treated Pentecostalism with disdain, Yong’s scholarship gave birth to twins—systematized pentecostal theology and sophistication. In this scholarship pentecostal thinkers find their most intimate voice, and the global academy witnesses a splendid realization of the potentials of pentecostal theology. This book is a concrete evidence of all these.”

—Nimi Wariboko, Walter G. Muelder Professor of Social Ethics, Boston University, author of The Pentecostal Hypothesis: Christ Talks, They Decide



“Finally, a representative collection of Amos Yong’s writings in a single place! This Reader will delight newcomers and seasoned scholars of Pentecostalism alike by offering a selection of Yong’s most notable essays as entry points to his prolific work. Yong’s writing speaks for itself—what Stephenson offers is a firework of topics and ideas highlighting the pioneering work of one of Pentecostalism’s premier theologians.”

—Wolfgang Vondey, Professor of Christian Theology and Pentecostal Studies, University of Birmingham



“Christopher Stephenson has done a great favor to all of those who want to dive into the vast corpus of the world’s leading global pentecostal theologian, Amos Yong. This reader provides access to Yong’s rich and broad work, which will become essential reading for students of pentecostal theology in particular, and Christian theology in general, in the coming decades.”

—L. William Oliverio Jr., Associate Academic Dean and Chair of Graduate Studies, The School of Urban Missions Bible College & Theological Seminary
