A Reformed pneumatological matrix: an exploration


  • D. van den Bosch-Heij University of the Free State, South Africa


This contribution addresses the novel development of contemporary pneumatologies to explore the efficacies of the Spirit in relation to themes that move beyond the traditional pneumato logical loci of (the subjective side of) salvation and ecclesiology. The work of the Spirit is more and more related to tangible and contextual issues of human life. The article recognizes the impor tance of new constructive, contextual proposals on Spirit and human life by offering a perspective that might serve as a fruitful avenue to encourage the open and complex nature of Reformed thought about the Spirit in human life. This perspective is the development of a Reformed pneumatological matrix. The rele vance of such a pneumatological matrix for Reformed theology is exemplified in the theme of Spirit and healing in Southern Africa.
