In this exciting collection, an array of contemporary theologians reflects on the work of the Holy Spirit in relation to some of the world’s most pressing issues and problems. Offering a corrective to disembodied discussions of the Spirit, this book provides a look at the Holy Spirit set loose and sustaining the gift of and struggle for life in today’s troubled world. Among other topics, the contributors examine the Spirit’s activity in the reading of Scripture , the reality of religious pluralism, the growing ecological crisis, the rise of consumerism, and issues of empire.

Contributors include: John B Cobb Jr; Roger Haight, SJ; Barbara A Holmes; David H Jensen; Molly T Marshall; Sallie McFague; Amy Plantinga Pauw; Joerg Rieger; Eugene F Rogers JR; and Amos Young.

“Jensen has invited an impressive array of theologians to explore provocative new ways of retrieving the significance of the Holy Spirit as a dynamic mode of God’s transforming presence in these complex times. Here Christian doctrine both informs and is shaped by responsible participation in the concrete contexts of our lives where struggle and hope intersect.” Paul E Capetz, Associate Professor of Historical Theology, United Theological Seminary of the Twin Cities.
