About-

Speaking from his own experiences living among the very poor in Northeastern Brazil, Belgian liberation theologian Jose Comblin examines the effects of the presence of the Spirit in the world and the church. Comblin's theology of the Spirit and mission provides the first systematic treatment of the Holy Spirit from a liberation perspective and is significant in that it seeks to name the action of the Spirit in the lives of the poor, in the history of oppressed peoples.

Endorsements & Reviews-

"Latin American theology, we must acknowledge, has not developed a specific theology of the Holy Spirit. Until now, theology on our continent has been in the debt of the theology of the Latin Church, which, instead of developing a theology of the Holy Spirit, has only repeated what it has received from the patristic era. So far, Latin American theology - like all Latin tradition theology, both Protestant and Catholic - operates under the sign of a 'christomonism.'"
