Joel's cry of lament resonates through both the content and method of this fresh hearing of the prophet's message. The presupposition of a Pentecostal experience of the Spirit moves the author of this volume to discern the development of the book of Joel as a threefold movement of lament, salvation, and judgment. The interrelation of these themes gives distinctive shape to the promise and reception of the Spirit and provides an instructive paradigm for a revisioning of Pentecostal eschatology. Thus a prophetic hermeneutic is uncovered in the book of Joel and modeled in this appropriation of Joel's message.
