In Baptism in the Holy Spirit, Koo Dong Yun analyzes nine different theologians' constructs of "Spirit baptism," also known as "baptism of the Holy Spirit," as reflected from their various ecclesiastical and theological traditions (Roman Catholic, Lutheran, Dispensational, Pentecostal, and Reformed). This comparative study further underscores three distinctive features of Pentecostal theology: the Lukan orientation, the vitality of experience, and the verifiability of Spirit baptism.

Koo Dong Yun

Koo Dong Yun is Associate Professor of Theology at Bethany College, California. He earned his Ph.D. degree from the Graduate Theological Union, Berkeley, California. Also, Dr. Yun holds two masters degrees (M.Div., M.S.T.) from Yale University Divinity School.

Professor Koo D. Yun has given us a rich exposure to the various viewpoints offered on the Baptism in the Holy Spirit across confessional and denominational lines. Those who are tired of well-worn arguments and counterarguments on the nature of Spiritbaptism will find Yun's book a breath of fresh air. He challenges Pentecostal and Non-Pentecostal theologians alike to think ecumenically about Spirit baptism as a complex work of the Spirit. I highly recommend it. -- Frank D. Macchia, Vanguard University of Southern California and Editor of Pneuma: The Journal of the Society for Pentecostal Studies Rather than divide, the Spirit's gifts should unite the one Body of Christ. Koo Dong Yun's book paves the road toward a holistic theology of the Holy Spirit with signs directing us toward dialogue between Pentecostals, Roman Catholics, and mainline Protestants. -- Ted Peters, Pacific Lutheran Theological Seminary I commend this volume to the student who wishes a strong historical and theological contribution to his or her understanding of Spirit baptism. It is a serous critique of the limited perspective that all too often characterizes Pentecostal discussionsconcerning the baptism in the Holy Spirit here in the USA. -- Byron D. Klaus Pneuma Prof. Yun has written the best dialectical analysis to date of traditional and contemporary interpretations of Spirit-baptism. The ecumenical scope of this study clarifies the issues to which theologians of all the churches need to attend in approaching baptism in the Holy Spirit. Prof. Yun has written a must read for anyone involved in Pentecostal charismatic forms of prayer and for anyone seriously interested in advancing understanding among the churches. -- Donald L.
