This book by globally recognized Pentecostal scholar Frank Macchia brings an incarnational and a Spirit Christology together in fresh, groundbreaking ways. Drawing from both classical and contemporary sources, Jesus the Spirit Baptizer probes the fundamental connection between the person of Christ and the Holy Spirit, arguing that Christology properly explicates Jesus as the one who bears the Spirit so as to impart the Spirit to all flesh.
Frank Macchia understands the outpouring of the life-giving Spirit as the fulfillment of Christ’s life and mission. And so he rightly interprets the birth, passion, and resurrection of Christ from the perspective of Pentecost.... I am grateful for this book.

In this readable and delightful essay on Christology, Frank Macchia contributes his own blossom to the flowering of Pentecostal systematic theology in our time. Ecumenical and grounded in Pentecost, this Christology is at once biblical and academic, creative and traditional. Macchia’s salutary critical dialogue with Pannenberg and Barth only serves to deepen his analysis and extend his own creative revisions.

Frank Macchia has long been at the vanguard of Pentecostal theology as it has engaged the historic Christian theological tradition. This Pentecostal Christology of his reconfigures the entire theological landscape!
