This article serves as an introduction to a dialogue with Oliver Davies regarding his proposal for transformational theology. The dialogue identifies some of the implications of Davies’ proposals for Pentecostal theology. This first essay, which follows the larger contours of Davies’ line of argumentation, names a few important themes that can vitalize various features of Pentecostal work in the academy, including the place of cosmological commitments, the Pentecostal understandings of Christology, and the openness to ‘miracle’ as a bona fide theological category. Pentecostals can find in Davies a theological sensibility that legitimizes the primacy of first-order discourse among worshiping communities while simultaneously keeping an eye on the latest developments within the sciences.
