Overview

Since 1992, the Wheaton Theology Conference at Wheaton College has enabled Christian wisdom and reflection to be heard on a range of issues relevant to both current theological scholarship and the contemporary church. InterVarsity Press has cosponsored the theology conference since its inception, and it has regularly published an edited volume based on the conference lectures.

With the Wheaton Theology Conference Series, readers can now benefit by collecting all of the available volumes based on past theology conferences. Each conference and subsequent volume addresses a particular topic such as the theology of N. T. Wright, the role of beauty in the Christian faith, spiritual formation through the Holy Spirit, global theology, the relationship between theology and psychology, the doctrine of justification, racial dynamics in the church, and the role of women in ministry.

Collectively, the volumes include contributions from renowned scholars and church leaders such as N. T. Wright, Dallas Willard, Mark Noll, Kevin Vanhoozer, Amos Yong, Jeremy Begbie, Stanley Hauerwas, Mark Labberton, Scot McKnight, Soong-Chan Rah, Philip Jenkins, Deborah van Deusen Hunsinger, James Kombo, Timothy George, Ellen Charry, Bruce McCormack and many more.

  • Publisher: IVP
  • Publication Date: 2009
  • Pages: 256

Sample Pages: 1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6 | 7

This volume, edited by Jeffrey P. Greenman and George Kalantzis, marks another compilation from the Wheaton Theology Conference. 2009's event produced the wealth of work represented here exploring the theological foundations for a faithful approach to the church practices that contribute to spiritual formation, that is, to our sanctification in the power of the Holy Spirit.

Including essays from keynote speakers Dallas Willard and Gordon Fee as well as contributing essays by noted presenters such as Chris Hall, David Gushee, Linda Cannell, Cherith Fee Nordling and Lawrence Cunningham, this book offers a stimulating exploration of the historical, biblical and theological dimensions of spiritual formation. It will be of special interest to those who serve as pastors, spiritual directors, church ministry leaders and Christian educators.

This volume offers a readable and well-rounded treatise on Christian spiritual formation from many perspectives and faith traditions. In a world awash with confusion related to authentic spirituality and the church divesting its voice in the discussion, Life in the Spirit provides a refreshing call to renew our Christian roots, recommit to spiritual formations, and prepare for our unprecedented mission in the world.

Spirit of God: Christian Renewal in the Community of Faith

  • Editors: Jeffrey W. Barbeau and Beth Felker Jones
  • Publisher: IVP
  • Publication Date: 2015
  • Pages: 267

Sample Pages: 1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6 | 7

While the age of the Holy Spirit began with Pentecost, the twentieth century has seen an explosion in the Spirit’s work through the remarkable growth of Pentecostalism and the changing face of global Christianity. Despite these surprising developments, and the undeniable significance of the Holy Spirit throughout the life of the church, pneumatology too often remains a subject of misunderstanding and neglect.

These essays, gathered from the 2014 Wheaton Theology Conference, provide an ecumenical exploration of the Holy Spirit’s person and work in biblical, historical, doctrinal and practical perspective. In addition to essays on Augustine, Aquinas, creation and salvation, the volume features important contributions on the current shape of global Pentecostalism by leading scholars in the field.

Introducing key themes, figures and movements in the biblical and historical theology of the Holy Spirit, covering major areas of contemporary theology and ecclesiology from a pneumatological perspective and with an eye toward their implications for Christian thought, life and ministry by leading Protestant, Pentecostal and Catholic theologians, Spirit of God makes an effective entry point to the leading edge of the field of pneumatology.
