Reviews - What do customers think about Beyond Salvation: Eastern Orthodoxy and Classical Pentecostalism on Becoming Like Christ (Paternoster Theological Monographs)?

Common Ground in Christ  Jul 26, 2007
At a time when Pentecostal Christianity is growing faster than any other Christian tradition worldwide, and when conversion rates to Eastern Orthodox Christianity in the United States are booming, this book comes to me as a welcome and highly relevant read indeed. Deification is a scary word for most western, especially Protestant Christians, but it need not be. It doesn't mean we are fourth and fifth persons of the Trinity, superhuman rulers of other worlds, etc. It is simply the logical outcome of applying the doctrine of the incarnation, death and resurrection of God in Christ to its maximal degree. Simply put, it is what St Paul meant by His phrase "in Christ".

Rybarczyk's personal upbringing sheds light on his interest in the subject. His dad was a Pentecostal minister and his mom was Orthodox, and he treats both positions with courtesy. No cheap shots here. While he acknowledges the differences, and doesn't try to gloss over them, his theme is to show the common ground as a basis for ecumenical dialogue.

Some notable points for me are: Orthodox root their anthropology in the Image of Christ in man, while the west roots it in the doctrine of the Fall. He asserts, over simplistically I believe, that the East emphasizes the victory of Christ over death as the locus of theology, with the West focusing upon the death of Jesus and the satisfaction of the wrath of God. What unites them, however, is the emphasis upon human agency, something Pentecostalism does not share with much the Protestant tradition. This, he says, is a result of the holiness movement rooted in Wesleyan theology (the main theological source of the movement). A difference can be seen in the Orthodox emphasis upon the communal context of theosis (sacraments, liturgy, obedience, etc), while Pentecostals tend toward individualism and emotionalism ("slain in the Spirit" charismatic antics) that are less easily institutionalized, or even serving as counter-institutional expressions of spirituality.

While the author sees Pentecostalism as a common ground between the East and the rest of Protestantism, I tend to disagree. While it is certainly true that there is a common goal in each tradition, one would have to overlook great parts of the Orthodox faith to believe that Orthodoxy has more in common with Pentecostals than, say, Traditional Lutherans or Anglicans. It would seem that sacramental Protestants, taking the reality of Grace shared through matter, share a greater amount in common with the Orthodox, even if they do not always use the same terminology. On this point see One with God: Salvation As Deification and Justification (Unitas Books), The Ground of Union: Deification in Aquinas and Palamas and Union With Christ: The New Finnish Interpretation of Luther. And since Pentecostals have an affinity for Wesleyanism, you cannot go wrong with Orthodox and Wesleyan Spirituality
