Review of Veli-Matti Kärkkäinen, ed. Holy Spirit and Salvation: The Sources of Christian Theology.

Trostyanskiy, Sergey

This source book of pneumatology is a collection of excerpts from various Christian sources. Taking into account “an unprecedented interest in the Holy Spirit” in the past few decades and the correspondingly extensive amount of literature on this subject, Kärkkäinen gives to students of theology and church history a chance to get a good glimpse at the issues associated with the Holy Spirit and Its role in Trinitarian theology, ecclesiology, and soteriology. The ambitious task of introducing almost the entire content of Spirit theology to the reader is fulfilled through the careful choice of the most significant works on the subject, supplemented with introductory notes to each excerpt.
