This chapter deals with the state of Pentecostal theology. It gives a succinct, balanced, and informative description of the main systematic contributions for developing Pentecostal theology. It discusses both the question of methodology and the main loci of Pentecostal theologies. Furthermore, it looks at the state of Pentecostal theological scholarship by locating emerging Pentecostal theologizing of the Spirit within the larger matrix of rapidly developing constructive systematic theology done by Pentecostals. Pentecostalism cannot build on tradition for the simple reason that it came into existence only a century ago. Because Pentecostalism was birthed out of dynamic experience rather than a theological discovery, it has liberally incorporated elements from a number of theological traditions and sources such as Methodist-Holiness movements, the Protestant Reformation, mystical-Charismatic movements in the Roman Catholic and Eastern Orthodox Churches, as well as black or African American spirituality. Its theology is still in the making and represents a dynamic syncretistic exercise.

Keywords:   pneumatologies, Pentecostal theology, spirit, Methodist-Holiness movements
