Product Overview

The Holy Spirit is certainly the most misunderstood member of the Christian Trinity. It is often perceived as lagging behind the Father and Son, somehow floating free of material reality. Is there "anything" the Holy Spirit can do that Jesus can''t do better?

In order to clarify and explain the role of the Holy Spirit, this new book provides a comprehensive collection of crucial texts relating to the Holy Spirit from Christianity''s earliest origins to the present day. Foundational issues are questioned, critiqued, and clarified by drawing on Greek, Latin, Eastern Orthodox, Mystical, and oft-neglected Syriac and Russian resources from throughout Christianity''s rich history. Organized by place, time, and type, the readings are each prefaced with a theologically informed essay that draws out the main themes and points out important historical links.

"The Holy Spirit" will enlighten and inform while inspiring us to engage in deep reflection on the Holy Spirit''s role in the Trinity.
