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.
