This number of essays seeks to attract realization to that fab number of advents of the Spirit, and through so doing to provide an orientation for students and scholars alike to the learn of Pneumatology, the disciplined mirrored image at the Christian doctrine of the Holy Spirit. those essays have been initially ready for a symposium on Pneumatology that used to be held at Marquette collage in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, on April 17-19, 1998. the gang of foreign and ecumenical students that convened for this event-historians, biblical exegetes, philosophers and systematicians-were invited either due to their recognition of their respective fields in addition to their well known contributions to the examine of this doctrine.
