God the Spirit
Introducing Pneumatology in Wesleyan and Ecumenical Perspective
Imprint: Cascade Books
"This book is a gracious introduction to the person and work of God the Spirit grounded in the communion of the triune God and God's people. From both a particular Wesleyan and a wider ecumenical perspective, Jones helps to navigate historical, creedal, and contemporary experience of the Spirit under the wisdom and authority of Scripture and the reasonable discernment of the saints. In a world vague on 'spirituality' and a church that swings between domesticating and overemphasizing certain experiences of the Spirit, this helpful book for students, pastors, and laity will encourage all who desire to know and walk in the Spirit to do so in the joy, power, and humility of Christ."
--Cherith Fee Nordling, author of Knowing God by Name
"A pneumatology at once biblical, orthodox, evangelical, and Wesleyan? Beth Felker Jones's lovely book signals a way past the West's common forgetfulness of the Spirit toward recognition and worship of the one Augustine called our 'perpetual comforter.' Highly recommended for teaching at all levels of church and academy."
--Jason Byassee, author of Discerning the Body
"I hope this books gets into many seminary classrooms, pastors' studies, and church small groups, because I know of no better guide to help us understand, discern, and--best of all--participate in the re-creating work of the Holy Spirit in our midst. With stylistic grace, theological insight, and conceptual clarity, Jones has written a genuinely inspiring book on the Spirit."
--L. Roger Owens, Associate Professor of Leadership and Ministry, Pittsburgh Theological Seminary
"Beth Felker Jones manages both subtlety and accessibility in her account of the complex history and interpretation of the doctrine of the Holy Spirit. Even better, in concert with the Scriptures, her beautiful prose fills readers with a sense of the Spirit's presence and sustaining love."
--Fred Edie, author of Book, Bath, Table, and Time
