Amos Yong is the most prolific pentecostal theologian to date, and his published works are so many that it is difficult to find an amiable entry point into his thought. An Amos Yong Reader is the first introduction to Yong's theology in his own words. It brings into one volume representative samples of the broad range of Yong's scholarship, including theology of religions, religion and science, theology and disability, political theology, Luke-Acts, and theological method. Christopher A. Stephenson, perhaps Yong's most insightful interpreter, provides an introductory essay that both orients readers to Yong's extensive theological program and identifies the most important key to understanding Yong's theology as his most neglected work, Spirit-Word-Community, a book with implications far beyond the boundaries of Pentecostalism. An Amos Yong Reader provides an overview of Yong's thought and a starting point for more thorough study in any of the major themes in his expansive corpus.
