About-

How can theologians, philosophers, and ordinary people think about the Holy Spirit in the twenty-first century? This volume offers one model: the pneumatology of minoritarian communal interpretation, the alternative creation of meaning within an oppressive majority context. Garber looks at the stories of Saul, Ezekiel, and Jesus in the Gospels; the Radical Reformers of the sixteenth century; and a contemporary group of “spiritual but not religious” artists to see how they understand the Spirit working in their lives. He weaves together the theories of John Howard Yoder, Deleuze and Guattari, and media theorists like Stanley Fish, Jeremy Stolow, and Thomas Lindlof as a theological and philosophical background to those stories. In the end, the Holy Spirit is “being weird like Jesus together”—and Garber offers some observations on what that might look like, throughout history and today.

Endorsements & Reviews-

“This important exploration across the minoritarian landscape offers a unique view of what it means to find the Holy Spirit in our own troubled time. The Spirit is best seen in the concrete, which this conversation offers from several different angles. This book takes an honest wrestle with what theory, Bible, media, and experience might offer the real church community. His theology truly lies in that ‘tension’ he calls for ‘between passionate faith and theological complexity.’”

—Elizabeth Coody, Assistant Professor, Morningside College



Another Way challenges individualistic understandings of the work of the Holy Spirit. Bringing Deleuze and Guattari into conversation with Anabaptist thought and media theory, Garber describes the Holy Spirit as God emerging in the communal creation and transition of meanings that opposes systems of oppression and violence. As a Mennonite theologian, he brings this method to bear on the troubling legacy of John Howard Yoder and the connections between Yoder's thought and sexually abusive behavior.”

—Jeffrey H. Mahan, Professor of Religion and Public Communication, Iliff School of Theology
