The Coming of Pietistic-Pentecostalism: Summary and Reflection on Amos Yong’s 2015 Downey Lectures

Reflecting his own tradition’s emphasis on orthopraxy, Amos Yong shows himself to be a good example of these proposed ways of moving forward as he has given himself to academic and spiritual work, not as separate areas of his life, but all for the purpose of achieving the highest goal of loving God and neighbor. By exemplifying openness to identifying his tradition’s weaknesses and celebrating in its strengths, he set the stage for others to follow him in creating a culture of love made possible by God and carried out by his people.

 

Editor’s note: Special thanks to Alma Yong for use of her collage of Amos Yong at Ambrose University.
