Within the field of theology per se a fundamental issue is raised when we begin with the Spirit. This issue concerns the particular shape and trajectory of the Christian faith. How will the doctrine of God at the heart of theology be re-configured when the Spirit becomes the fundamental theme? To begin with the Spirit is to place such a question at the centre of the theological agenda.
