b'BIBLICAL STUDIESPNEUMAFORMITYTransformation by the Spirit in PaulMARK J. KEOWNIt is by the Spirit, through Christ, that God is transforming people, communities, and the cosmos, according to Paul.Beliefs about the Holy Spirit have clear implications for all of Christian life. Pneumaformity surveys Pauls letters for clarity on these teachings. By incorporating Pauls Trinitarian framework behind teachings about God and Christ with specific mentions of the Spirit, New Testament scholar and longtime pastor Mark Keown gives readers eyes to see the expansive nature of Pauls pneumatology.Prominent recent studies elevate the themes of Christoformity and cruciformity in Pauls writings, but few sufficiently account for the Holy Spirit, the instrument through whom radical living is possible. This study dives into Pauls teachings on the following aspects of the Spirits agency:the Spirits participation in conversionthe Spirits role in forming Christian characterthe Spirits integrating work within the Christian communitythe Spirit and missional engagementthe Spirits place in the believers final eschatological transformationKeownshowshowPaulinfusedhisChristologicallanguagewith pneumatological realities, offering readers a fuller understanding of the Spirits work in individuals, the church, and the world.Rev.
