The Holy Spirit by Christopher R. J. Holmes Receives Best Theology Book of the Year Award from Australian Theological Forum
The Holy Spirit by Christopher R. J. Holmes, published by Zondervan Academic, has received the 2015 Australian Theological Forum’s annual book award for Best Theology Book.
Holmes will be presented with the award in July at the annual conference for the Australia/New Zealand Association of Theological Schools.
“This is a very serious and competent study of the third person of the Holy Trinity, discussed powerfully within its proper Trinitarian framework,” reported the Australian Theological Forum judges. “It is an engagement with the Trinitarian (and pneumatological) insights of three of the greatest theologians in the history of the church, St Augustine, Aquinas, and Karl Barth.”
“The subject matter is of the greatest importance, while the discussion is subtle and profound,” the judges continued. “Even those not familiar with the intricacies of systematic theology will find this study clear and compelling. In times when the Holy Spirit is sometimes reduced to a feeling, thorough theology such as this is a necessity, not an option.”
The Holy Spirit is in the New Studies in Dogmatics series, published by Zondervan Academic.
Christopher R.J. Holmes (ThD, Wycliffe College, University of Toronto) is senior lecturer in Systematic Theology in the Department of Theology and Religion, University of Otago, Dunedin, New Zealand. Christopher is an Anglican priest and is the author of Revisiting the Doctrine of the Divine Attributes: In Dialogue with Karl Barth, Eberhard Jüngel, and Wolf Krötke (2007), Ethics in the Presence of Christ (2012), as well as many articles on the theology of Karl Barth, Dietrich Bonhoeffer, and on Christian doctrine.
