The Holy Spirit: Eastern Christian Traditions

Front Cover
Hendrickson Publishers, 1989 - Bibles - 260 pages
In his second volume, Burgess brings together a wealth of material from Eastern Christian traditions, a rich heritage often overlooked in Western Christianity. By exploring how the Third Person of the Trinity has been understood by theologians of Eastern Christianity, this volume shows how modern Christians can gain a wider vision and a fuller understanding of the workings of the Holy Spirit in history and in our own generation.

"A useful introductory review of the Eastern Christian Tradition on the Holy Spirit."
" The Very Reverend John Meyendorff, Dean St. Vladimirs Orthodox Theological Seminary

"The Holy Spirit: Eastern Christian Traditions" is the second in a series of three volumes devoted to the history of Christian pneumatology.
