Description:

This book develops a Pentecostal ecological theology (ecotheology) by utilizing key pneumatological themes that emerge from the Pentecostal tradition. It examines the salient Pentecostal and Charismatic voices that have stimulated ecotheology in the Pentecostal tradition and situates them within the broader context of Christian ecumenical ecotheologies (Roman Catholic, Orthodox, Protestant, and Ecofeminist). The author advances a novel approach to Pentecostal ecotheology through a pneumatology of the Spirit-baptized creation, the charismatic creational community, the holistic ecological Spirit, and the eschatological Spirit of ecological mission. Significantly, this book is the first substantive contribution to a Pentecostal pneumatological theology of creation with a particular focus on the Pentecostal community and its significance for the broader ecumenical community. Furthermore, it offers a fresh theological approach to imagining and sustaining earth-friendly practice in the twenty-first century Pentecostal church. Bookseller Inventory #

Review: "A.J. Swoboda has done believers a great service with his groundbreaking work,Tongues and Trees: Toward a Pentecostal Ecological Theology. Worshipful stewardship of creation and Spirit-inspired redemptive action must include care for all living creatures ... Tongues and Trees is a groundbreaking work in Pentecostal theology. Based on the author's extensive research and the reviewer's own examination, it is the first serious book-length treatment on the subject ... I recommend this for all biblical and theological learners and thoughtful pastoral leaders." - Charlie Self, professor of Church History, Assemblies of God Theological Seminary, Springfield, MO
"Swoboda is one of an emerging generation of theologians who are showing themselves capable of living fully into their pentecostal-charismatic theology and sensibilities on the one hand, and yet also speaking intelligibly into the wider theological arena on the other hand ... Tongues and Trees shows that it is possible to interpret across these traditional divides both prayers and discursive argument, hopes and analytical assessment, passion and criticism - and that these actually can be mutually informing rather than disparately dissonant." - Amos Yong, professor of Theology & Mission and director of the Center for Missiological Research at Fuller Theological Seminary, Pasadena, CA
"Swoboda provides a groundbreaking work inPentecostal eco-theology. He shows that defining Pentecostal theological themescontribute to a pneumatological and Pentecostal theology of eco-theology aswell as a Spirit-empowered eco-discipleship. Swoboda demonstrates the capacityfor biblical, ecumenical, systematic, and constructive theology that is as oncewinsome in its conversation with wider traditions of Christian theology,intimate with the concerns of the Pentecostal theological tradition, andprogressive in its constructive proposals on eco-theology for the Pentecostalcommunities ... Informed by deep and sophisticatedscholarship, its prose is, nonetheless, accessible, and its content engagedwith a vital issue in contemporary theology as well as a Christian life andministry. This book is a major contribution not only to Pentecostal theology,but also the wider enterprise of Christian eco-theology." - Steven M. Studebaker, professor of Systematic and Historical Theology and Howard and Shirley Bentall Chair in Evangelical Thought at McMaster Divinity College, Hamilton, ON
