Is a Pentecostal-charismatic worldview defensible in light of contemporary science? In The Spirit of Creation, Amos Yong demonstrates that Pentecostal thought does indeed have merit in scientific contexts. What's more, he argues that Pentecostal-charismatic views regarding the dynamic presence and activity of the Spirit of God and the pluralistic cosmology of many spirits have something important to add to the broad discussion now taking place at the crossroads of science and religion. Interacting with many scientific fields of study--including psychology, sociology, evolutionary science, cosmology, and more--Yong's Spirit of Creation demonstrates the significance of Pentecostal ideas to the ongoing dialogue between theology and science. --From publisher's description.
