R. Hollis Gause (1925-2015) is a well-known Pentecostal biblical and theological scholar whose life and work has proven to be an important for numerous students and colleagues working in the emerging discipline of Pentecostal theology. This monograph is a slightly revised version of his 1975 Emory PhD dissertation, which continues to be one of the only full-length treatments of Luke’s Transfiguration account to date. In this original analysis, Gause offers an overview of the text’s history of interpretation, a literary reading of the text (that both critiques previous redactional approaches and anticipates the emerging field of narrative analysis), and an extensive theological analysis of the significance of the Transfiguration for both Luke and the broader Christian tradition. Those familiar with the work of R. Hollis Gause will note the way in which this work was foundational for much of his later thought and work. The inclusion of this volume as part of the Centre for Pentecostal Theology Classics Series makes this significant work available to wider audience.R. Hollis Gause (PhD, Emory University; DLitt, Lee College; DD, Pentecostal Theological Seminary) was Founding Academic Dean and Director, as well as Professor of New Testament and Theology, at the Pentecostal Theological Seminary in Cleveland, TN USA.
