This essay argues that the pneumatological imagination, motivated initially as a question about Pentecostal hermeneutics and theological method, serves also as a logic for theological reflection for those who wish to take seriously the person and work of the Holy Spirit. A concise historical and thematic situating of the emergence of the concept amid wider theological advances sets up the main part of this chapter: a delineating of the various features of the pneumatological imagination through a re-reading of the Pentecost narrative in the Book of Acts. The goal is to show how the logic of Pentecostal theology can empower Christian theological reflection at large and how a Pentecostal theological logic can serve as a foundational element for all Christian theologizing.
