This conclusion presents some closing thoughts on the key concepts discussed in the preceding chapters of this book. The book explores the ordinary beliefs and practices of Pentecostal and Charismatic Christians in relation to the Holy Spirit. It investigates the ordinary theology of classical Pentecostal Christians in the British Assemblies of God tradition by means of a congregational study using qualitative research. The book focuses on the metaphor of rescripting' to rescripting process of theological engagement, by which is meant a disciplined and attentive interaction with the verbatim testimony, and which treats the discourse that emerges as a form of script. Therefore, recommendations for renewed congregational praxis can now be made that display both continuity with the ordinary theology of believers and discontinuity through the rescripting process. The book presents some suggestions are made for future research in practical-theological studies of Pentecostal and Charismatic Christianity.
