Paperback
This magnum opus from one of evangelicalism's most stimulating theologians. Pinnock's systematic theology examines the centrality of the Holy Spirit to the church's life and witness, and invites us to move beyond rationalism to recover "intimacy and immediacy" with God. A theological bridge of mainstream, evangelical, and charismatic thought.

- Publisher Voted one ofChristianity Today's1997 Books of the Year!In what may be regarded as hismagnum opus,Clark Pinnock here turns attention to the vital Christian doctrine of the Holy Spirit. Writing out of wide learning and deep personal passion, he shows us the way to restore the oft-neglected Spirit to centrality in the life and witness of the church.Pinnock explores the doctrine of the Spirit in relation to other key doctrines such as the Trinity, creation, Christology and the church. Never one to duck the difficult or sensitive questions, he also examines issues of the Spirit's universality, gender language for the Spirit, and charismatic gifts.Pinnock intends his book to be catholic (in the sense of respecting the beliefs and worship of the historic church) and evangelical (drawing particularly on the heritage of the Reformation). Always in sight is the mission of the church, for "people want to meet the real and living God and will not be satisfied with a religion that only preaches and moralizes." He concludes, "Only by attending to the Spirit can we move beyond sterile rationalist religion in the direction of recovering the sense of intimacy and immediacy for which our generation--and every generation--longs."

Significant introduction.
5 stars By David N., Sep 02 2013
If you are after an introduction to Pneumatology (doctrine of the Holy Spirit), this book is a good place to start. One of the few detailed systematic theologies out there. One I continually refer back to when I prepare Bible study lessons. A lot of controversial topics are covered. Gets my praise!
