This chapter charts the Pentecostal theological response to the contemporary ecological crisis, beginning with its initial reticence to involve itself in the debate, moving to those precursors in the historical development of Pentecostalism that paved the way for its engagement with the issue, leading finally to its participation in discussions advocating for the care of creation and its prospects for becoming a leading voice in defense of creation. This chapter argues that, despite some longstanding ambivalence over environmental engagement, Pentecostalism has the theological infrastructure to articulate a robust ecotheology and to participate in the ecological healing of creation.
