Description: 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. Endorsements: ""Beck gives us two books for the price of one. He builds on a detailed study of the Apostle's eschatological framework in pneumatology and allows it to absorb through interaction the numerous and rich flavours of Moltmann's own treatment of that very subject, which (I can say) results in something truly impressive."" --Clark H. Pinnock McMaster Divinity College, Emeritus "" This volume] provides an excellent point of entry into the contemporary discussion of some of the most vital themes of the doctrine of the Holy Spirit. It both clearly and accurately identifies the role that Pneumatology has played in the Protestant tradition and the character of its development, as well as demonstrates why eschatology is now widely recognized as constituting the essential horizon of the doctrine. The author then goes on to develop a very insightful account of that connection between eschatology and Spirit in conversation with the Apostle Paul in the first century and Jurgen Moltmann in our own. A very impressive achievement for what began life as a doctoral dissertation I recommend it highly."" --D. Lyle Dabney, Marquette University ""We have long needed an account of the relation between eschatology and pneumatology, between the dawning of the kingdom of God and the work of the Holy Spirit. David Beck has given us a splendid volume devoted to this desideratum. Newcomers will find here an accessible introduction; veterans will find a host of insights worthy of further reflection; all will be illuminated and edified."" --William J.
