One of the most exciting recent developments in theology has been an unprecedented interest in the person and work of the Holy Spirit. In fact, Veli-Matti Karkkainen describes this phenomenon as a "pneumetalogical renaissance." But such discussion should be informed, he contends, by two overarching principles. First, we must acknowledge the variety of approaches to the experience of the Holy Spirit ecumenically: "No church can claim a monopoly on the Spirit, and no tradition is specifically 'spirited.'" Second, talk about the Spirit must always be contextual and therefore culture-specific: "The spirit of God . . . indwells believers and creation in specific and tangible ways." Working from this perspective, the book introduces readers to pneumatology, the theology and spirituality of the Holy Spirit, in current international theology. As such, the work offers a biblical, historical, and theological assessment of the Third Person of the Trinity. However, unlike most textbooks on pneumatology, Karkkainen takes a fresh, innovative approach. Rather than focusing on any single topic, his aim is to chart the various territories of contemporary writings and reflections on pneumatology. Consequently, the volume examines various theological and denominational understandings of the Spirit (all major Christian traditions are reviewed), assesses key contemporary theologians of the Spirit (e.g., Pannenberg, Moltmann, and Pinnock), and inquires into several contextual approaches (e.g., liberation, feminist, and green). These distinctives and the emphasis on the contemporary global scene make this a unique volume. An up-to-date survey of the most noteworthy and theologically pregnant orientations to the Spirit in the worldwide ecumenical and intercultural scene, this work will guide readers in discerning the Holy Spirit's activity at the beginning of the third millennium. --discusses ecumenical, international, and contextual pneumatologies--ecumenical emphasis ranges from Eastern Orthodox to Pentecostal/charismatic--international scope gives voice to African and Latin American perspectives--covers major pneumatologies--provides a comprehensive bibliography… (més)

Initial impressions:

This book is in desperate need of a table of contents that goes down one more level of detail, similar to his [b:An Introduction to Ecclesiology: Ecumenical, Historical & Global Perspectives|1499803|An Introduction to Ecclesiology Ecumenical, Historical & Global Perspectives|Veli-Matti Karkkainen|http://photo.goodreads.com/books/1184326869s/1499803.jpg|1491205] - I just skimmed the text so I could write one in. Oddly, his chapter on ecclesiastical (what I would call denominational) traditions omits Anglicans (the ecclesiology book does this too) and Methodists (particularly odd given Wesley's "heart strangely warmed" conversion experience); and selects the Lutheran church as a representative of the Reformed tradition(??).

Although plenty of space is given to Eastern Orthodox and Roman Catholic perspectives, and some to ecumenical perspectives, I didn't spot a discussion of the filioque clause. Maybe that's due to his desire to emphasize experience and new perspectives, rather than rehashing thousand-year-old disagreements; or maybe I just missed it. I care a lot about this topic because it has been church-dividing; on the other hand, I'm already reasonably well informed about it. And our other text, [b:I Believe in the Holy Spirit|827935|I Believe in the Holy Spirit|Yves Congar|http://photo.goodreads.com/books/1328806561s/827935.jpg|813649], looks like it has an extremely detailed (albeit necessarily slightly dated) discussion of it... which, however, is not included in the syllabus for the course I'm taking!

One of the most exciting recent developments in theology has been an unprecedented interest in the person and work of the Holy Spirit.
