Systematic Theology as Philosophical and Fundamental Theology in Pneumatological Perspective

Chapter 4 considers the method of making pneumatology the starting point for philosophical and fundamental theology. The representative of this approach is Amos Yong. Similar to Macchia, Yong explores traditional doctrinal loci from a pneumatological perspective; however, Yong also addresses metaphysical, epistemological, and hermeneutical issues that Macchia does not. By giving a pneumatological account of the God-world relationship (“foundational pneumatology”) and of human interpretation and knowing (“pneumatological imagination”), Yong lays the groundwork for a global theology that is characteristically pentecostal.
