'The Holy Spirit and the Renewal of All Things' sets out to change the starting point for theological conversation about the work of the Holy Spirit. Protestant theologians have associated the Spirit's work almost entirely with believers and/or the church. The Spirit's role is to apply Christ's atoning work to God's people. In Protestantism, this restricted concept of the Spirit has manifested itself in ongoing arguments between those who tie the Spirit to human experience and those who tie the Spirit to ecclesial functions. Either type of Protestant pneumatology contains truth, but each forms a restrictive box into which the Spirit's work simply does not fit.In contrast, early Christian reflection saw the Spirit's main role as bringing about the eschatological rule of God, which reaches beyond individuals or even the church and extends to all creation. This volumes explores the shape pneumatology takes when we develop the theology of the Holy Spirit within an eschatological framework that has a universal scope and an unlimited history. When we do so, we find that pneumatology deriving from questions about what the Spirit does for us needs to give way to pneumatology that derives from questions about how the Spirit can draw us into the saving history of the triune God.
