Spirit of Love
A Trinitarian Theology of Grace
By Amos Yong
Pentecostal theologian Amos Yong points readers toward an increased theological emphasis on God as love. In Spirit of Love, the first pneumatology of the divine spiritual gift of love, Yong constructs ecumenical and interdisciplinary theology of the Holy Spirit for the church universal. A distinctive contribution toward greater theological reflection on the triune God, Spirit of Love moves readers toward a more complete understanding of God as the source of divine love.
"Yong renders his tradition an invaluable service. This is a key book in the emergence of a mature Pentecostal theology."
—Gary Badcock, Peache Professor of Divinity, Huron University College, University of Western Ontario

—Mark J. Cartledge, Director of the Centre for Pentecostal and Charismatic Studies, University of Birmingham, UK
"Yong's work is ground-breaking in developing a robust Pentecostal theology."
—Richard J. Mouw, Ph.D., President and Professor of Christian Philosophy, Fuller Theological Seminary
