The Age of the Spirit

Full Product Description

"Reading this pair of veteran authors is like being invited as a freshman into the office of an admired professor and then being brought up to speed like a colleague." - Publishers Weekly.

A thousand years ago, Christianity experienced a time of tremendous upheaval called the Great Schism. One faith became two churches, East and West, and the course of world history was forever changed. It all swirled around one Latin word in the Nicene Creed, filioque, that indicated the Holy Spirit proceeded both from God the Father "and from the Son." From the time that phrase was officially instituted in the West, the Holy Spirit's place in the Trinity and role in the lives of believers would be fiercely debated, with ramifications being felt through the centuries to this very day.

In this book you will encounter not just the fascinating historical realities that have shaped our faith today but also the present resurgence of interest in the Holy Spirit seen in many churches across the theological spectrum. Tickle and Sweeney are apt and engaging teachers, making accessible and relevant the forces behind the current upheaval in the church, then leading you confidently into the Age of the Spirit.
