Abstract

ATR/99.4 Book Reviews 823 is an example of the local studies from which such a work might be devel- oped. Beyond the academic audience, the insights of the book also provide useful guideposts for those seeking to engage in ecumenical conversations with the Pentecostal community. By drawing our attention to spirituality as the central organizing principle in Pethrus’s (and more broadly, Pentecostal) ecclesiology, Davidsson provides a way of understand Pentecostal ecclesiol- ogy that provides space for variety in practice and expression while also en- abling normative evaluation and interdenominational engagement.

Minneapolis, Minn.: Fortress Press, 2016. 326 pp + xii. $79.00 (cloth). Scholars have devoted much energy to theorizing about Balthasar’s theo- logical aesthetics, tracing questions of beauty’s form and the transcendentals within the first volume of The Glory of the Lord.
