Reviews

"The widespread belief that we inhabit a world of spiritual as well as material forces is too important to be dismissed or ignored by intellectual elites. Finally, here is an excellent guide that addresses this topic from a variety of disciplinary, religious, and cultural perspectives." - Frank D. Macchia, professor of Christian Theology, Vanguard University, US

"If you think you know pneumatology, think again! In this diverse and I mean, DIVERSE set of writings, the work of the Spirit takes a wide array of forms. The result is a book that pushes boundaries, and sometimes the boundaries seem to disappear altogether." - Thomas Jay Oord, Professor, Northwest Nazarene University, Idaho, US

"Serious academic discussions of spirit(s) are few and far between. With the advent of this volume, the conversation has been taken to a whole new level. A robust series of engagements. Wide-ranging in its considerations and richly interdisciplinary.' - Paul Rhodes Eddy, Professor of Biblical & Theological Studies, Bethel University, US

"This courageous book is inspirational, imaginative and renewing as it moves, empowers, and transforms us to reimagine a spirit-filled world. It collects diverse voices from around the globe to prophetically proclaim new dimensions of the spirit. The authors push boundaries, create new ways of seeing, suggest bold ideas, and make room for creative growth and vision. The writing is provocative, innovative, and challenging as it provides hope for a broken and divided world by inviting new dialogue partners, working towards including others, and embracing those who are different from us.' - Grace Ji-Sun Kim, Associate Professor of Doctrinal Theology, Moravian Theological Seminary, US, Author of Colonialism, Han, and the Transformative Spirit, and Holy Spirit, Chi, and the Other.
