With Beyond The Impasse Yong has begun to illuminate the way for other theologians and thinkers to continue expanding and exploring this Pneumatological theology of religion. Beyond the Impasse will [...]

    If you're not pentecostal, and want to keep your prejudices regarding pentecostalism intact, then I advise you not to read this book.Amos Yong is one of the leading pentecostal theologians of our time, with an impressive academic output (a nightmare for those who want to study his thought, for he writes faster than one can read).In this work, he lays the groundwork for a pneumatological theology of religions. This work is not only for pentecostals (or evangelicals), but all involved in theology [...]

    Not bad, but certainly a conversation starter rather than anything definitive.
