Hospitality and the Other: Pentecost, Christian Practices, and the Neighbor (review)

Hospitality and the Other: Pentecost, Christian Practices, and the Neighbor (review) BUDDHIST-CHRISTIAN STUDIES HOSPITALITY AND THE OTHER: PENTECOST, CHRISTIAN PRACTICES, AND THE NEIGHBOR. By Amos Yong. Maryknoll, NY: Orbis Books, 2008. xvii + 160 pp. From violent conflicts in Sri Lanka and Nigeria to academics at the American Academy of Religion, from St. Athanasius to Derrida, from missiology to theologies of religions, Pentecostal theologian Amos Yong's Hospitality and the Other: Pentecost, Christian Practices, and the Neighbor demonstrates Yong's command of an impressive breadth of materials. This is both the book's strength (i.e., the creative synthesis of so much) and its vulnerability (i.e., some pieces seem sketchily developed and only tenuously integrated, though in fairness some are addressed in Yong's other works). Yong's strategy appears to be triangular in shape: (1) theology of hospitality ought to inform theology of religions, (2) theologies of religions need to articulate their implied interreligious practices, and (3) pneumatology links these other two legs, because God's hospitality as manifest in the Holy Spirit empowers interreligious practices. In an effort to move from abstract theory to concrete realities, Yong's first chapter begins with three case studies of interreligious relations: those of Sri Lanka, Nigeria, and the United States. This choice of cases is, by Yong's own http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Buddhist-Christian Studies University of Hawai'I Press

Abstract

BUDDHIST-CHRISTIAN STUDIES HOSPITALITY AND THE OTHER: PENTECOST, CHRISTIAN PRACTICES, AND THE NEIGHBOR. By Amos Yong. Maryknoll, NY: Orbis Books, 2008. xvii + 160 pp. From violent conflicts in Sri Lanka and Nigeria to academics at the American Academy of Religion, from St. Athanasius to Derrida, from missiology to theologies of religions, Pentecostal theologian Amos Yong's Hospitality and the Other: Pentecost, Christian Practices, and the Neighbor demonstrates Yong's command of an impressive breadth of materials. This is both the book's strength (i.e., the creative synthesis of so much) and its vulnerability (i.e., some pieces seem sketchily developed and only tenuously integrated, though in fairness some are addressed in Yong's other works). Yong's strategy appears to be triangular in shape: (1) theology of hospitality ought to inform theology of religions, (2) theologies of religions need to articulate their implied interreligious practices, and (3) pneumatology links these other two legs, because God's hospitality as manifest in the Holy Spirit empowers interreligious practices. In an effort to move from abstract theory to concrete realities, Yong's first chapter begins with three case studies of interreligious relations: those of Sri Lanka, Nigeria, and the United States. This choice of cases is, by Yong's own
