(p.3) Introduction
Power and the Spirit of God

Bernard Cooke

Oxford University Press

A paradigm shift has occurred in human knowing that places ‘power’ at the center of interpreting humans’ experience. This hermeneutic has found a distinctive expression in theological methodology where it has coincided with the incorporation of historical consciousness and utilization of experience as a starting point. Within theology, this has produced renewed interest in pneumatology, the study of the Spirit of God. Since biblically the Spirit of God is identified as divine power, this volume relates the divine Spirit to various forms of power.

Keywords:   experience, hermeneutic, paradigm shift, methodology, pneumatology, theology
