This book is a contemporary examination of the theology of the Holy Spirit from the perspectives of a variety of ecclesial and contextual locations with an emphasis on the liberating action of the Holy Spirit in human lives. Its ecclesial content includes Pentecostal, Protestant, Roman Catholic, and Eastern Orthodox pneumatologies, with insights from contemporary theologians from each perspective. Its distinctive feature is its examination of pneumatologies from the feminist, womanist, mujerista, Black, Latinx, and cosmological theologians, focusing on unique images and liberating actions of the Holy Spirit in the social and cultural contexts of human experience. Ultimately, this particular emphasis on the liberating action of the Spirit is what sets this book apart.
