In this distillation of his Warfield Lectures, delivered at Princeton Theological Seminary in spring 2014, the author, a leading Reformed theologian, examines the relationship of the Holy Spirit to Jesus Christ. He demonstrates how a fuller understanding of the interplay between Christology and pneumatology can encourage the Christian church to have open eyes and ears for the inbreaking of God’s incredibly benevolent force into the cosmological emptiness of today’s world.
