Item description for The Spirit of God: The Exegesis of 1 and 2 Corinthians in the Pneumatomachian Controversy of the Fourth Century (Supplements to Vigiliae Christianae) by Michael A. G. Haykin...

The Spirit of God examines the use of 1 and 2 Corinthians by two fourth-century Greek Christian authors, Athanasius and Basil of Caesarea, especially as it relates to the doctrine of the Holy Spirit. The controversy over the nature and status of the Spirit during the latter half of the fourth century is detailed in order to place in context the examination of the way in which the theological concerns of Athanasius and Basil shaped their pneumatological interpretation of the Corinthian correspondence. This examination will be of value to patristic scholars interested in the way that Scripture was employed in the fourth century to hammer out doctrine.

Reviews - What do customers think about The Spirit of God: The Exegesis of 1 and 2 Corinthians in the Pneumatomachian Controversy of the Fourth Century (Supplements to Vigiliae Christianae)?

Excellent Treatment of Pneumatological Exegesis  Feb 11, 2003
Haykin has done an admirable job in summarizing the essential elements of the Nicene response to the Pneumatomachian rejection of the Holy Spirit as God. What emerged from this controversy was not, as some might believe, an unimitigated triumph for catholic orthodoxy, but a diluted, compromise acknowledgment in the Constantinopolitan creed (so called "Nicene" creed recited in the Ctaholic and Orthodox Church today)that the Holy Spirit deserves the same worship as the Father and Son, but no explicit equation of the three as being God. And even this required the Emperor Theodosius to issue an edict requiring that the three be equally worshipped. I would have liked a little more of the Pneumatomachian view than Haykin provided, but his exposition of the exegesis used to marginalize them adequately describes why the heresy met the fate it met.
