Editorial Reviews

Review

"Science and the Spirit should be required reading not only for undergraduates committed to various Pentecostal traditions, but to all who have an interest in the engagement of faith traditions with the sciences in a manner that respects and deepens the appreciation of both while denying neither." —Ralph W. Hood, Jr., The University of Tennessee at Chattanooga

(Ralph W. Hood, Jr., The University of Tennessee at Chattanooga)

"This book illustrates something of the current, very preliminary, engagement that is beginning to take place between Pentecostal Christians and 'science' very broadly defined. It is a significant project." —Douglas Jacobsen, Messiah College

(Douglas Jacobsen, Messiah College)

"This book is a sign that the Spirit still initiates wonder. In fact, science may need to embrace the Spirit described in this book as much as Pentecostals need to embrace the natural wold also described herein. This volume puts the Ghost back in the machine—and in all creation, for that matter." —Thomas Jay Oord, Northwest Nazarene University

(Thomas Jay Oord, Northwest Nazarene University)

"Argues for a healthy relationship between science and Pentecostalism." —Denis Lamoureux, University of Alberta

(Denis Lamoureux, University of Alberta)

This is an interesting and surprising volume: surprising because as a collection written by Pentecostals primarily for Pentecostals it is published by a respected university press; interesting because it provides a rare introduction to an impassioned plea for a dialogue characterized by counterintuitive accommodations. Consistently granting the counterintuitive nature of a cooperative conversation between cutting-edge science and Pentecostal theology, these essays surprise the reader by extracting accommodations to much of contemporary science from what is described as Pentecostal theological principles (which hardly appear representative of most Pentecostals). Hence the complementary accommodation: this volume is explicitly intended for the Pentecostal college student, and its essays propose that this audience can find accommodation for both what is conceded as necessary, a 'methodological naturalism' in the practice of science, and for the pervasive spirit. This attempted accommodation will certainly strike some as dancing surprisingly close to panentheism. Ultimately, this volume is not about science or the spirit; it is about constructing Pentecostal identity in the modern world, which explains both its intended audience and the difficulty of classifying it. Thus understood, it may prove to be most interesting to anthropologists, sociologists, and historians of religion. Summing Up: Recommended. Researchers/faculty and professionals/practitioners. -- ChoiceJ. C. Hanges, Miami University, April 2011

(J. C. Hanges, Miami University 2011-01-00)

"These books represent a body of important work and an ecumenical challenge for theologians and religious leaders... We can be grateful to the scholars and editors for making these resources available in a readable but richly researched set of volumes." —JOURNAL of ECUMENICAL STUDIES, Vol. 46, No. 1 (Winter, 2011)

(JOURNAL of ECUMENICAL STUDIES)

"This is a very interesting collection of articles that explore questions of spirituality in the light of contemporary science and technology.... Each of these papers is helpful in addressing crucial questions at the interface of science and Pentecostal spirituality." —Perspectives on Science and Christian Faith

(Perspectives on Science and Christian Faith)
