This book reexamines the central themes of Reformation theology. Chung considers the energy of the Spirit as the Spiritus Creator within the natural world, the Spirit’s place in the Trinity, the role of the Spirit in election, the controversial question of the third use of the law, and the effects of the Spirit for the life of the world. In addressing these and many other issues, this book clearly and carefully describes the fundamental shape of Reformation thinking and introduces the reader to what was and is at stake in the Reformation’s insistence on the centrality of the Gospel.

About the Author:

Paul S. Chung is Associate Professor at Luther Seminary, St. Paul, MN. He is the author of numerous works, including Martin Luther and Buddhism: Aesthetics of Suffering (2nd ed., 2007) and Karl Barth: God’s Word in Action (2008

Review:

“Chung demonstrates how potent the force of the Spirit already is in the thoughts and writings of Luther and Calvin. What has been left too often implicit about the work of the Reformers is here made powerfully explicit. The book contributes admirably to the purpose of introducing the reader to what was and is at stake in the Reformation’s insistence on the centrality of the Gospel. I look forward to the theological conversations and reactions Chung’s spirited voice will evoke in others.”--From the Foreword by Craig L. Nessan, Academic Dean and Professor of Contextual Theology, Wartburg Theological Seminary

“I strongly recommend this book for anyone interested in the Spirit. While clearly acknowledging the differences between Luther and Calvin, it also makes the case for their shared relevance to many of the hard questions we face as we seek to discern how the Spirit may indeed be at work in our world today.”--Lois Malcolm, Associate Professor of Systemic Theology, Luther Seminary

“Chung’s study is a masterful blend of the historical Reformation studies, dialogue with the most recent systematic theologies, especially the views of Karl Barth, Hans J. Iwand, Jürgen Moltmann, and F.W. Marquardt.”--Veli-Matti Kärkkäinen, Professor of Systematic Theology, Fuller Theological Seminary; Docent of Ecumenics, University of Helsinki, Finland

“Spirit is of crucial importance in Reformation theology--though surprisingly hidden. The Spirit is prominent and controversial in global theology today--though not always with a broad theological exploration. Here the conversation is ecumenical and global, focusing on Calvin and Luther as well as Barth, and aiming at understanding God’s work in the world.”--Gary Neal Hansen, Professor of Church History, University of Dubuque Theological Seminary

"With or without Pentecostal offerings, Chung has made a major contribution to both ecumenical discussion and global theology. His unique perspective on the pneumatology of Calvin and Luther is a must-read for today's pastors, theologians, as well as any Christian interested in the work of the Spirit. Undoubtedly, The Spirit of God Transforming Life will assist the global faith community as it seeks to fulfill Paul's challenge (in Chung's words) for us: 'that Christ and the church become one flesh and one bone.'" --Mary Schaefer Fast, Regent University School of Divinity
