Amos Yong: Discerning the Spirit(s)

Yong’s description of his work as a “pneumatology of quest” requires remembering (pp. 32, 314; 323). The adventure is open-ended. He humbly acknowledges the provisional nature of his work, submitting it to peers for perusal and possible adjustments. He has left himself, and us, room to move and grow and change as the Spirit leads. In his own life, he allows uncertainty derived from the Spirit’s mystery to co-exist (comparatively!) comfortably with faith’s verity (John 3:8; cf. p. 310). Readers are invited to join in this Holy Spirit-guided quest. One could hardly do better than by tackling Discerning the Spirit(s).
