The Holy Spirit, Paperback / softback Book

The Holy Spirit Paperback / softback

Part of the New Studies in Dogmatics series


Who is the Holy Spirit and how does the Spirit come to be in relation to the Father and the Son?

What is the mission of the Spirit and where does it come from?

Chris Holmes takes up the questions surrounding the Spirit's procession and mission with the help of three of the church's greatest teachers-Augustine, Thomas Aquinas, and Karl Barth. Drawing on their engagements with the Fourth Gospel, Holmes presents an account of the Spirit's identity, origin, and acts, to show how the acts of the Spirit derive from the Spirit's life in relation to Father and Son-and the extent to which the Spirit's mission testifies to the Spirit's origin. Holmes presents a way forward for pneumatology. Housed within the doctrine of the Trinity, pneumatology's joyful task is to describe the Spirit's acts among us in light of their source in the Spirit's acts in God.

The end of this inquiry is our beatitude-knowledge of the Trinity that yields to love of the Trinity.
