About this book

Twelve scholars from the biblical, historical, theological, and philosophical disciplines engage in a conversation on the transforming work of the Holy Spirit in the Christian life. The essays are held together by an enduring focus and concern to explore the relationship between the work of the Holy Spirit and Christian formation, discipleship, personal and social transformation. The book points toward the integration of theory and practice, theology and spirituality, and the mutual interest in fostering dialogue across disciplines and ecclesial traditions.

Reviews

'Nothing less than a new and highly promising field of interdisciplinary investigation is announced with the launching of the series CHARIS: Christianity and Renewal Interdisciplinary Studies. This inaugural volume of constructive studies on the phenomenon of renewal focusing on Christian tradition promises a research program which considers the meaning of 'transforming dimension of the Spiritual Presence' not only in other faith traditions but also everywhere in the created order. A highly innovative and creative enterprise, this book is required reading for all interested in the Spirit/-uality in the contemporary world.'

Veli-Matti Kärkkäinen, Professor of Systematic Theology, Fuller Theological Seminary and Docent of Ecumenics, University of Helsinki, Finland.

"This book launches a new series devoted to interdisciplinary studies of Christianity and Renewal, initially by exploring interdisciplinary inquiry within theology hermeneutical, historical, constructive, homiletic, and practical. These studies accentuate the transformative power of the Spirit at work in communities, and the transgressive power of this Spirit opening new pathways at the margins. These richly textured analyses promote pneumatological approaches that serve the interest of renewal movements on a global scale as they lay the groundwork for a wider range of interdisciplinary inquiry."

Brad Hinze, Professor, The Karl Rahner Chair in Theology, Fordham University, USA.

"A rich and diverse assortment of essays from seasoned and newer scholars, this book offers a fresh look at how the Spirit is at work amongst us. Those who mine its pages will certainly come away with insight and inspiration. An exceptional collection to treasure."

Lisa P. Stephenson, Associate Professor of Systematic Theology, Lee University, USA.
