Abstract

Pentecostal theologian Amos Yong predicted that Filled with the Spirit, like Barth's Römerbrief, will fall 'like a bombshell on the playground of theologians' and 'explode in the field of those laboring on a theology of the spirit'. The range of reactions in this issue of Journal of Pentecostal Theology, represented by Roger Stronstad, Max Turner, and Robby Waddell, suggests that Yong's prediction is squarely on target. Levison has hit a nerve in Pentecostal pneumatology, and readers of Filled with the Spirit are dividing, like onlookers at Pentecost, into two camps: converts and critics. In this response, Levison addresses both camps by identifying the challenges and opportunities that Filled with the Spirit raises for Pentecostal and charismatic scholars, such as the need for a new definition of subsequence and the scandal of ecstasy in the New Testament. This article shows that Filled with the Spirit is iconoclastic and, as Yong suggests, explosive.
