Description : In From Pentecost to the Triune God Steven Studebaker puts forth a provocative Pentecostal Trinitarian theology, arguing that the Holy Spirit completes the fellowship of the triune God and therefore shapes the identities of the Father and the Son. The Holy Spirit, Studebaker maintains, is not simply a passive end-product of a procession from the Father and Son but, rather, a dynamic person who plays an active role in the Trinity and a constitutional, consummational role in the history of redemption. In the course of his study, Studebaker shows the theological yield of the Pentecostal experience of the Holy Spirit and uncovers the biblical narratives of the Spirit from creation to Pentecost. A constructive and ecumenical contribution to Trinitarian theology, From Pentecost to the Triune God also engages major historical and contemporary figures such as Augustine, the Cappadocians, Weinandy, and Zizioulas, as well as representatives from the evangelical and charismatic traditions. Finally, Studebaker applies his Pentecostal Trinitarian theology to the theology of religions and creation care, proposing that Christians embrace an inclusive posture toward people of other religious traditions and have an earth orientation that sees creation care as Christian formation.

Description : Trinity After Pentecost considers the triune God from a Pentecostal viewpoint. In so doing, it offers a fresh articulation of the theology of the Trinity, taking the Holy Spirit as its starting point. It concludes that the Trinity cannot be adequately appreciated using any single model - whether social, modal, or psychological. Instead, it presents three models - relational, instrumental, and substantial - that must be held in paradoxical tension with one another to gain insight into the Trinity. Of these, the relational model is the foremost. Pentecost offers rich potential for seeing the relations between the Father, the Son and the Spirit as a dynamic reciprocal 'dance', in which each Person empties their 'self ' in order to exalt the others.

Description : Lesslie Newbigin was arguably the greatest missionary thinker of the twentieth century. After a successful missionary career in south India, Newbigin pioneered missionary engagement with the secular West and resurgent Islam. He also led the way in arguing that the Church’s mission can only be understood in light of the doctrine of the Trinity. Over fifty years ago, Newbigin called for the further development of missionary thinking grounded in the Triune being of God. This work is in response to that call. Adam Dodds provides the first in-depth study of Newbigin’s trinitarian theology of mission. Dodds constructs a systematic account of the central features of the mission of the Triune God: the Triune being of God, the mission of the Son, the mission of the Holy Spirit, and the mission of the church. This book contributes to our understanding of the work of Lesslie Newbigin, offers a systematic theological account of the mission of the Triune God, and contributes to the retrieval of Christian mission from the theological margins back to a place of central importance to Christian theology.

Description : The Pentecostal Manifestos series aims to speak for and to a rising, outward-looking generation of Pentecostal scholarship. Written by both established and newly emerging scholars, the various "manifesto" volumes will be creative statements, marked by rigorous theological scholarship, reflecting a distinctly Pentecostal engagement with wider themes and concerns in Christian thought today. The Second Volume of the groundbreaking Pentecostal Manifestos series, Frank Macchia's Justified in the Spirit offers a pneumatological, Pentecostal-friendly theology of justification by faith that is broadly Trinitarian, ecclesiological, and eschatological in orientation. "It is a necessary and new perspective to see the justification of the sinner embraced by the life-giving Spirit. Frank Macchia's book is a great step forward toward a full Trinitarian concept of salvation.... A rich book full of solutions to old theological problems."ùJnrgen Moltmann, University of Tilbingen "Argues persuasively that Christian teaching about the Spirit (pneumatology) has much to offer to a correct understanding of justification.... We have here a book of singular consequence."ùWilliam G. Rusch, Yale Divinity School "A noted systematician and ecumenist, Macchia gleans from his own Pentecostal tradition in his intriguing revisioning and reorientation of the major soteriological concept of justification by faith."ùVeli-Matti KSrkkSinen, Fuller Theological Seminary University of Helsinki "With Macchia's Justified in the Spirit Pentecostal systematic theology has come of age.... Catholics and Protestants will no longer be able to attribute a secondary role to the Spirit, while Pentecostals will discover the hidden treasures that their movement signifies."ùRalph Del Colle, Marquette University

Description : This book argues that Christians have a stake in the sustainability and success of core cultural values of the West in general and America in particular. Steven M. Studebaker considers Western and American decline from a theological and, specifically, Pentecostal perspective. The volume proposes and develops a Pentecostal political theology that can be used to address and reframe Christian political identity in the United States. Studebaker asserts that American Christians are currently not properly engaged in preventing America’s decline or halting the shifts in its core values. The problem, he suggests, is that American Christianity not only gives little thought to the state of the nation beyond a handful of moral issues like abortion, but its popular political theologies lead Christians to think of themselves more as aliens than as citizens. This book posits that the proposed Pentecostal political theology would help American Christians view themselves as citizens and better recognize their stake in the renewal of their nation. The foundation of this proposed political theology is a pneumatological narrative of renewal—a biblical narrative of the Spirit that begins with creation, proceeds through Incarnation and Pentecost, and culminates in the new creation and everlasting kingdom of God. This narrative provides the foundation for a political theology that speaks to the issues of Christian political identity and encourages Christian political participation.

Description : The book "From the Ark of Yahweh to the Church of the Triune God" is to enhance our understanding of the Church. Integral ecclesiogenesis has five stages: 1. The timeless idea of God the Father, 2. Continuation in the Old Covenant, 3. Establishment by Jesus (transition from the idea of the Kingdom of God to the Divine-humanly ecclesial reality), 4. Continuous fulfilment since Pentecost, 5. The current pursuit of eschatological completeness. Clearly abandoning the thesis that Jesus founded the Church explicitly and directly, the Author fleshes out the emergence of the Church in the Old Testament. This is why he first reconstructs Biblical Israel and the Judaist environment in which Jesus of Nazareth grew up, lived and taught. The Judaism of this period was much more Hellenised, diverse and divided than previously thought. Hence, Jesus not so much pursued the establishment of a religious community, but - as the eternal Son of God - He primarily wanted to fulfil the will of the Heavenly Father, although a community that was the work of the Holy Spirit and the Remnant of Israel did emerge after His resurrection. This view of ecclesiology is not so much christocentric, but primarily trinitarian and pneumatocentric, and clearly enhanced with a human dimension.Just as the exploration of Yahweh's presence among the Hebrews as the People of the Old Covenant must include the Ark of the Covenant, the self-communication of the Holy Trinity in the new people washed with the blood of the new Moses cannot ignore Mary, from the bosom of whom It has emerged. And just as the Ark of the Covenant accompanied the Jews in their exodus through the desert to the promised land, so does Mary always accompany Christians on their path with Christ. REVIEWS: From the Ark of Yahweh to the Church of the Triune God is a book written by Fr Andrzej Napiórkowski OSPPE, professor of theological studies, The Pontifical University of John Paul II in Krakow, member of the Theological Sciences Committee of the Polish Academy of Sciences. I recommend the book as an original and valuable work on the Church and her genesis. Integral ecclesiogenesis has five stages: 1. The idea of God the Father, 2. Continuation in the Old Covenant, 3. Establishment by Jesus, 4. Continuous fulfilment since Pentecost, 5. The current pursuit of eschatological completeness. The Church is a mystery. It encompasses heavenly and earthly reality and it expresses in itself the Triune God that reveals Him. Exploring and discussing the beginnings of the Church, according to Fr A. Napiorkowski OSPPE "leads to becoming closer to historical Jesus on the one hand, while on the other, it aids in updating the reality of the Church".Prof. Eugeniusz Sakowicz, Head of the Chair of the Religiology and Ecumenism at the Faculty of Theology, Cardinal Stefan Wyszynski University in WarsawIl libro "From the Ark of Yahweh to the Church of the Triune God" è un interessante tentativo di approfondire la comprensione dell'istituzione e della formazione della Chiesa. Il suo principale vantaggio è la presentazione dell'ecclesiogenesi dell'Antico Testamento. Alla sua luce, dunque, l'evento della Chiesa sembra essere non solo opera di Gesù Cristo, ma soprattutto della Santissima Trinità e dell'uomo che trova la sua salvezza in questa santa comunità. Da un lato, l'autore, un noto teologo e specialista, ricrea accuratamente il mondo del giudaismo biblico, e dall'altro, nelle sue conclusioni, si avvicina alla visione ortodossa della Chiesa, e ciò con una peculiare sensibilità ecumenica.Prof. dr hab.

Description : The Triune God speaks to the saints and in so doing proclaims God's will and the spiritual blessings available from Him, His Son, and the Holy Spirit. It starts with doctrine, God's call, Christ's teachings, trusting Him, and knowing the Word. The Word is essential, it needs to be the whole Word of God revealing His being, nature, teachings, and commands. It culminates in stressing the importance of prayer, in giving thanks, receiving wisdom in the knowledge of Him, being enlightened, knowing the hope of His calling, and believing in His mighty power as we walk through life with Jesus encountering its trials, tests, and tribulations as well as experiencing its joys, blessings, and gifts with a grateful heart.

Description : Recent decades have witnessed increased attention on the Holy Spirit, recognizing it as a critical component in Christian thought. While the volume of publications on the Spirit indicate that scholarly discussion about the Spirit is both creative and lively, it does sometimes appear to be diffused across the spectrum of contemporary theological thought. Nowhere does this scattering seem more prevalent when discussion of the doctrine of the Holy Spirit occurs in outlying areas of doctrine and practice rather than within its native context--the doctrine of God. The 2020 Los Angeles Theology Conference examined pneumatology as a core component of the doctrine of the Trinity, offering constructive proposals for understanding the doctrine of the Holy Spirit with theological and historical depth, ecumenical scope, and analytic clarity. This book represents the proceedings of the conference. X

Description : In this second edition, the mystic von Speyr offers a profound contemplation of the Seven Last Words of Our Lord on the Cross, with specific application to the Seven Sacraments instituted by Christ. There is no greater mystery to be contemplated than the Paschal Mystery. In this spiritual gem, von Speyr leads us to the foot of the Cross, and with her we gaze upon the crucified Christ and listen deeply. The Word, who became flesh and made his dwelling among us, cries out in his suffering seven last words, which open up the portals of divine grace that are known as the sacraments. These mysterious gifts, which come at such an indescribable cost, deserve to be cherished,reverenced, and contemplated. The Cross: Word and Sacrament will challenge, surprise, and encourage the reader to welcome the Paschal Mystery into his own life. Guided into the depths of this mystery by von Speyr, the reader encounters a very real Jesus, who knows us all too well and still loves us without end. He speaks to us personally. The words he utters from the Cross contain not only gifts experienced in the sacraments of the Church but also questions: Do you truly understand what is being offered to you? Will you accept my gifts? Will you suffer the mystery contained in such love? This small book contains the spiritual richness that is the fruit of her deep meditation on the Word. It calls the reader to conversion, which is a continual process of turning toward the Son, who leads us, in union with the Holy Spirit, into an ever-deepening relationship with the Father. Thus is the reader brought into the very life of the Trinity, that communion of love without end.

Description : This comprehensive textbook by a well-respected Reformed theologian brings together two perennial issues in Christian theology: the doctrine of the Holy Spirit and ecclesiology. It demonstrates the importance of the Holy Spirit in empowering the being and mission of the church and shows how the church's identity and calling are embedded in the larger covenantal purposes of the triune God. Accessibly written with pastors in training in mind, the book probes the classic rubrics of the church as the people of God, the body of Christ, and the temple of the Holy Spirit, igniting readers' ecclesiological imaginations and reclaiming a more biblical, theological, and pastoral vision of church.

Description : From one of the 20th century's most beloved spiritual writers A. W. Tozer is known for many things. He's known for his powerful writing style. He's known for being vigorously biblical. And he’s known for gazing upon God intently in Word and prayer, and then telling readers plainly what he sees. All of these aspects of Tozer shine through in Meditations on the Trinity. Divided into four parts—one for each person of the Trinity, and one for the Godhead three-in-one—this volume compiles excerpts from Tozer's writings into a collection of daily readings to help you grow in you understanding of a central Christian doctrine. No one can over-contemplate the Trinity. It is an inexhaustible mystery, and one that rewards sustained reflection. Readers of Meditations on the Trinity will receive a more accurate view of who God is, and in turn offer Him truer worship. We exist to know and praise God, and this book will help readers do just that.

Description : This groundbreaking book sets out fresh arguments that common views on the doctrine of the Trinity are mistaken, on three counts. One, the idea of the Trinity can't be found explicitly in Scripture. Two, it is a mystery irrational to the human mind. Three, the classical creeds of the church are the best place to start. These old ideas break down in light of recent research in biblical studies. Writing in plain English, the author sets out where the Trinity can be found in Hebrew and Christian Scripture; that it is rational and understandable; and that there are biblical ways of understanding it that are easier to get across than the classical creeds. This book offers what many interested in teaching or learning about the Trinity have lacked up to now. And it will be a great help to those who are unsure how to communicate the idea of the Trinity in ways that the nonspecialist can understand. For the scholar interested in biblical and early-church studies, recent insights from temple theology and name theology produce a fresh perspective that will stimulate further discussion on this important subject. In the temple of God, we find the triune God.

Description : On the day of Pentecost Peter preached the gospel, the Spirit was outpoured, and close to three thousand souls were saved. These newly saved believers spontaneously began to meet together in their homes: "And day by day, continuing steadfastly with one accord in the temple and breaking bread from house to house, they partook of their food with exultation and simplicity of heart" (Acts 2:46). In these home gatherings, all believers were able to function, and the early church flourished and spread (v. 47). In The Furtherance of the New Way for the Lord's Recovery Witness Lee sounds a call for the church to return to this biblical pattern. Drawing on numerous examples from the Scriptures, he highlights the central role of the home in presenting the gospel to unbelievers and in building up new believers. Returning to the God-ordained way of bringing the gospel to unbelievers and teaching the truth to new believers in their homes will open the way for the building up of the Body of Christ.

Description : How should one approach the task of theology? This Spectrum volume brings together five evangelical theologians with distinctly different approaches to the theological task who present their own approach and respond to each of the other views. Emerging from this theological conversation is an awareness of our methodological commitments and the benefits that each can bring to the theological task.
