Systematic Theology and The Kingdom of God

Show Summary Details


Chapter 3 is devoted to the method of making the kingdom of God the starting point for all other doctrinal loci. The representative of this approach is Frank D. Macchia. He articulates a theology of the kingdom of God and ultimately transitions to a thoroughly pneumatological theology, in which the intersection between the kingdom of God and pneumatology serves as the background for the whole of Christian theology. In moving toward a fully pneumatological theology, Macchia argues that an expanded theology of the pentecostal distinctive of baptism in the Holy Spirit should be the principle around which pentecostal systematic theology is organized.
