Spirit of Love
A Trinitarian Theology of Grace
By Amos Yong
Pentecostal theologian Amos Yong points readers toward an increased theological emphasis on God as love. In Spirit of Love, the first pneumatology of the divine spiritual gift of love, Yong constructs ecumenical and interdisciplinary theology of the Holy Spirit for the church universal. A distinctive contribution toward greater theological reflection on the triune God, Spirit of Love moves readers toward a more complete understanding of God as the source of divine love.
