The fourth installment in a wide and deep constructive theology for our time

This fourth volume in Veli-Matti Kärkkäinen's ambitious five- volume systematic theology develops a constructive Christian pneumatology and soteriology in dialogue with the diverse global Christian tradition and with other major living faiths — Judaism, Islam, Buddhism, and Hinduism.
“Kärkkäinen’s engagement with a multiplicity of traditions is to be commended. . . . A valuable introduction to the major issues and arguments in pneumatology and soteriology.”
“The posture of Kärkkäinen’s theology exhibits a remarkable beauty, skill and breadth.”
Religious Studies Review
“Rather than acquiescing to attitudes of attack or retreat, Kärkkäinen approaches the pluralistic realities of today’s religious world as welcome opportunities for enrichment. He thus equips Christians for presenting their case to others in an informed, even friendly, fashion without a hint of compromise. The results are often astounding.”


"Extraordinary. . . . K�rkk�inen's awareness of contemporary issues and vast learning make this volume a necessity for any scholar or Christian leader."
Peter Phan
— Georgetown University
"With awe and admiration readers of this comprehensive and lucid book will no doubt link its author's name with Thomas, Calvin, Barth, Moltmann, and other theological luminaries. After the completion of K�rkk�inen's five-volume project, theology will not be the same."
Stephan Bevans, SVD
— Catholic Theological Union, Chicago
"K�rkk�inen's systematic theology, while firmly rooted in the evangelical theological tradition, is wonderfully and warmly ecumenical, frankly Christian but still open to the insights and practices of other religious ways, and widely inclusive of Christian thinkers from all contexts and cultures. This is a new kind of theologizing, one done in a postmodern key yet remaining faithful to the treasures of our premodern and modern past. K�rkk�inen's breadth of scholarship is amazing."
