Product Description

In this exciting collection, contemporary theologians reflect on the work of the Holy Spirit in relation to some of the world's most pressing problems. Offering a corrective to disembodied discussions of the Spirit, this book provides a look at the Holy Spirit sustaining the gift and struggle for life in the midst of trouble. Among other topics, the contributors examine the Spirit's activity in the reading of Scripture, the reality of religious pluralism, the growing ecological crisis, the rise of consumerism, and issues of empire.
