Publisher's Description

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.

Editorial Reviews

'With its scriptural alertness, its generous appropriation of elements of classical Christian thought, and its dogmatic intelligence and scope, this is a rewarding study of the lordly and life-giving Spirit.' -- John Webster, St. Mary's College, University of St. Andrews

'This is a worthy contribution that enriches our understanding of the Holy Spirit’s person and work by upholding the centrality of Christ.' -- George Hunsinger, Princeton Theological Seminary

'Here is adventuresome dogmatic theology at its best. Holmes’s vibrantly Christological, exuberantly Trinitarian engagement with the Holy Spirit is demanding, invigorating theological engagement.' -- Will Willimon, Duke Divinity School

'Guided by such luminaries as John Webster and Kevin Vanhoozer, Reformed dogmatic theology has been powerfully revitalized in recent years. Professor Holmes’s exploration of the glorious mystery of the Holy Spirit is a fruit of this renewal and a most welcome fruit indeed.' -- Matthew Levering, Mundelein Seminary

'An excellent companion for those who would like to accompany Barth and Aquinas through their rigorous and biblical accounts of the Holy Spirit.' -- Eugene F. Rogers Jr., The University of North Carolina, Greensboro
