In Pneumatology: The Person and Work of the Holy Spirit (TH251) Fred Sanders considers the often neglected and/or misunderstood doctrine of the Holy Spirit and provides a foundational pneumatology that focuses on the person and work of the Holy Spirit. He examines the Spirit in God in the context of Scripture, letting Scripture define the person and work of the Spirit while recognizing that this will leave many questions unanswered. Sanders counsels us to be okay with that, trusting that what the Spirit has chosen to disclose is sufficient for faith and godly living. This approach provides the Trinitarian background necessary to discuss the Spirit in God’s plan or mission in the world, which comprises the latter half of the course. Understanding the Spirit’s work in salvation history in this way provides a more concrete understanding of the Spirit’s role in the life of the church.
