The Zondervan Biblical and Theological Lectures series provides a unique audio learning experience. Unlike a traditional audiobook's direct narration of a book's text, The Holy Spirit: Audio Lectures includes high quality live-recordings of college-level lectures that cover the important points from each subject as well as relevant material from other sources.
Who is the Holy Spirit and how does the Spirit come to be in relation to the Father and the Son? What is the mission of the Spirit and where does it come from? Scholar and author Chris Holmes takes up the questions surrounding the Spirit's procession and mission with the help of three of the church’s greatest teachers--Augustine, Thomas Aquinas, and Karl Barth.
Drawing on their engagements with the Fourth Gospel, Holmes presents an account of the Spirit's identity, origin, and acts to show how the acts of the Spirit derive from the Spirit’s life in relation to Father and Son--and the extent to which the Spirit’s mission testifies to the Spirit's origin.
Alongside The Holy Spirit book, The Holy Spirit: Audio Lectures presents a way forward for pneumatology. Housed within the doctrine of the Trinity, pneumatology's joyful task is to describe the Spirit's acts among us in light of their source in the Spirit's acts in God. The end of this inquiry is our beatitude--knowledge of the Trinity that yields to love of the Trinity.
