Amos Yong's preeminent role among Pentecostal-charismatic theologians has long been acknowledged. Spirit of Creation now reveals him as one of the most exciting constructive theologians at work in the contemporary religion-science dialogue. Some will resist his openness to science, others his openness to the real activity of the Spirit. But Yong's beautifully argued proposal may just be the closest that one can come today to reconciling science, orthodox Christianity, and a Spirit-centered theology. Indispensable reading for anyone interested in the relationship of theology and science today. Philip Clayton Claremont School of Theology In this welcome new volume from the pen of Amos Yong, two major contemporary movements in theology come together: the growing, worldwide interest in religion and science, and the growing sophistication and extent of outstanding Pentecostal theology. This book covers many of the key issues in theology and science today, while always providing a learned and Holy Spiritoriented theological perspective. . . . I recommend this work to theologians interested either in first-class Pentecostal theology or in a clear and interesting contribution to the theology-and-science dialogue. Alan G.
