To take into consideration the Spirit it is going to now not do to imagine 'spiritually': to consider the Spirit you might want to imagine materially," claims Eugene F. Rogers. The Holy Spirit, who in classical Christian discourse "pours out on all flesh," has tended in smooth theology and worship to drift freed from our bodies. the results of such disembodiment, contends Rogers, is that our discuss the Spirit has develop into flat and uninspiring. In After the Spirit Rogers diagnoses a similar hole within the revival of trinitarian theology, a mentality that "there's not anything the Spirit can do this the Son cannot do better."The japanese Christian culture, in contrast, has frequently associated the Holy Spirit with holy areas, holy humans, and holy issues. Weaving jointly a wealthy tapestry of resources from this practice, Rogers locates the Spirit within the Gospel tales of the annunciation, Jesus' baptism, the transfiguration, and the resurrection. those tales supply illuminating glimpses into either the Spirit's reference to the tangible international and the Spirit's special position on the subject of the opposite people of the Trinity.Eight lovely colour plates supplement Rogers's witty and passionate prose.
