Ivan Satyavrata: The Holy Spirit

Still on the whole, Satyavrata’s The Holy Spirit would make an interesting read for a few reasons: he concisely scans history of the Spirit in the Church; he produces a condensed and simplified version of an evangelical ‘western pneumatology’ in propositional terms; he attempts some dialogue and engagement with Asian and in particular Indian culture. But for those looking for a serious global or even Asian evangelical pneumatology, I regretfully say this is not the book.
