Spirit Christology complements Logos Christology in the same way in
which Christ and the Spirit are mutually constitutive. Or at least
this should be the case. The history of Christian thought shows
that Logos Christology has dominated, resulting in both an eclipse
of Trinitarian doctrine and a diminution of pneumatology. Recently
there have been calls to reclaim a theology of the Third Article in
order to present a Trinitarian theology that is faithful to
Scripture, the Great Tradition, and one that is existentially
viable. While studies examine various aspects of Spirit Christology
there has yet to appear a work that introduces the doctrine,
examines the various mutually exclusive proposals, and offers a
constructive trinitarian proposal. The present work does just this,
introducing the constituent features of a Spirit Christology that
is Trinitarian, orthodox, and contemporary. The current work
proposes a model of Spirit Christology that complements rather than
replaces Logos Christology and does so in a robustly Trinitarian
framework. Within contemporary theology a pneumatically oriented
approach to Christology is being advanced across denominational and
traditional lines. Those wanting to navigate their way through the
many competing proposals for a Third Article theology will find a
comprehensive map here. "This is an important and useful book. Many
treatments of Spirit Christology evade not only the difficult
questions, but also the intriguing pneumatological possibilities
that a biblically-grounded Spirit Christology raises. Habets has
neither evaded the questions nor missed the opportunities
presented. Insightful, constructive, and at times daring, this
study seeks to reassert the importance of 'third article theology'
for the teaching, proclamation, and mission of the church." --Gary
D. Badcock Huron University College "The work of Myk Habets
promises to put New Zealand back on the theological map. This
volume not only accomplishes the recovery of Spirit Christology but
does so by presenting the state-of-the-question across the spectrum
of contemporary Christological debates and then showing how
factoring in the Holy Spirit resolves the existing conundrums. Thus
we have an excellent supplementary textbook for courses on
Christology that at the same time sets forth a constructive
theological proposal " --Amos Yong Regent University School of
Divinity "After the initial emergence of Spirit Christology some
three decades ago, various models from different perspectives have
been proposed. In this comprehensive work by Myk Habets we now
possess a definitive account of this new approach to the mystery of
Christ and the Spirit that will stand as a classic in its own
right. Habets advances the conversation with his own constructive
proposal that garners biblical, historical, and systematic
arguments in demonstration of the rich harvest that was once only a
promise." --Ralph Del Colle Marquette University Myk Habets
