Jelle Creemers: Theological Dialogue with Classical Pentecostals

Enabling both common witness for the common good and Christian witness to the wondrous works of God and the impending divine reign.

Pentecostal ministers who persevere through the small print of this book will also be better informed about how theological formulation must be sensitive to and at its best critically embraces the specifics of context, audience, and relational frames amidst which such articulations are forged. More importantly, they will be treated to how the dynamism and potential explosiveness of Pentecostal spirituality and experience can be not only tempered by dialogical interaction but also creatively resourced in and through such interchanges for scripturally and theologically meaningful explication. Last but not least, perhaps Pentecostal ministers can learn about how to open up dialogical venues in their local communities with not just Roman Catholic priests but also those of other ecclesial and even religious traditions, and to work toward understanding – not any watered down synthesis – that enables both common witness for the common good and Christian witness to the wondrous works of God and the impending divine reign.
