Description: Beginning not with Pentecost but with the origin of the universe as much as fifteen billion years ago, Edwards constructs a contemporary theology of the Spirit on foundations laid by Basil of Caesarea in the fourth century. This enables him to go behind later divisions between East and West on Trinitarian theology to retrieve Basil’s theology as the common heritage of both Latin and Greek Christianity. The book sketches a theological narrative of the Creator Spirit as a story with four great episodes: creation, grace, the Christ-event, and the Church. Edwards recovers the radical narrative and event character of the Biblical notion of “truth” and presents the Creator Spirit as companion to all creatures in their travail. This same Spirit is imaged as “making space” for a universe of creatures codependently evolving within the dynamic life of Trinitarian Communion.
