This book argues that if the Pentecostal movement is to overcome its excessive individualism and structural instability the way forward is not more institutionalization but a coherent and robust ecclesiology based on the Pentecost event, which is the coming of the Holy Spirit in his own person into the church. A Pentecostal ecclesiology is essentially the working-out of the ramifications of that key event. The book takes a more ontological understanding of the relationship between the Spirit and the church than would Protestant and evangelical ecclesiologies. In this respect, it has more in common with Orthodoxy.
Simon Chan, Ph.D. 1986, Cambridge University, is Earnest Lau Professor of Systematic Theology at Trinity Theological College, Singapore. His previous publications include Pentecostal Theology and the Christian Tradition and Liturgical Theology.
