Abstract

Donald L. Gelpi, SJ, has been one of the few individuals who has developed a systematic philosophical theology and spirituality that are imbued with intuitions derived from the (in his case, Catholic) charismatic experience. His insights remain to be appreciated as such by Pentecostal and charis matic scholars working in these areas. This essay seeks to introduce the work of Gelpi to Pentecostal and charismatic philosophers and theologians by providing broad overviews of the central themes of Gelpi's project begun in the early 1970s and more explicitly developed in his most recent books. I will focus on three motifs in Gelpi's oeuvre—his foundational pneumatol ogy, his theological anthropology, and his theological method—and explore how they intersect with, complement, and perhaps even chart fresh avenues for Pentecostal-charismatic scholarship.
