This is a study of Spirit-Christology-a contemporary theological model of the relationship between Jesus Christ and the Holy Spirit. Del Colle measures this christological model against trinitarian theology and tests its viability.

Review quote

Del Colle's model both exhibits advantages over the other models in its deliberate maintenance rather than rejection or reduction of the full doctrine of the Trinity ... and also throws light on further theological questions while at the same time deepening trinitarian faith. Del Colle proves to be a careful and accurate guide through a difficult theological terrain ... Christ and the Spirit provides a significant starting-point for further examination of Coffey and even fresh constructive proposals for a Spirit-Christology in an orthodox trinitarian perspective. * Simon Francis Gaine, OP, Journal of Theological Studies, Vol. 48, No. 1, Apr '97 * 'an important book ... a useful counter-point to occasional conceptual generosity in contemporary theologizing' Christoph Schwobel, Christian-Albrechts-Universitat, Kiel `Ralph Del Colle's study is an important book' Theology 'This monograph does not make for easy reading, but it will undoubtedly repay careful study.'
