Series: New Studies in Dogmatics
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 Spirits procession and mission with the help of three of the churchs greatest teachersAugustine, Thomas Aquinas, and Karl Barth.
Drawing on their engagements with the Fourth Gospel, Holmes presents an account of the Spirits identity, origin, and acts, to show how the acts of the Spirit derive from the Spirits life in relation to Father and Sonand the extent to which the Spirits mission testifies to the Spirits origin.
Holmes presents a way forward for pneumatology. Housed within the doctrine of the Trinity, pneumatologys joyful task is to describe the Spirits acts among us in light of their source in the Spirits acts in God. The end of this inquiry is our beatitudeknowledge of the Trinity that yields to love of the Trinity.

'This is a worthy contribution that enriches our understanding of the Holy Spirits person and work by upholding the centrality of Christ.'
'Here is adventuresome dogmatic theology at its best. Holmess vibrantly Christological, exuberantly Trinitarian engagement with the Holy Spirit is demanding, invigorating theological engagement.'
'Guided by such luminaries as John Webster and Kevin Vanhoozer, Reformed dogmatic theology has been powerfully revitalized in recent years. Professor Holmess exploration of the glorious mystery of the Holy Spirit is a fruit of this renewal and a most welcome fruit indeed.'
'An excellent companion for those who would like to accompany Barth and Aquinas through their rigorous and biblical accounts of the Holy Spirit.'
