Release Date and “Tour” for Trinitarian Testimony of the Spirit

Brill has set 30 May 2018 as the release date for The Trinitarian Testimony of the Spirit. The publisher’s page for the book can be found here; the official blurb for the book is as follows:

In The Trinitarian Testimony of the Spirit, Kyle R. Hughes offers a new approach to the development of early Christian pneumatology by focusing on how Justin, Irenaeus, and Tertullian linked the Holy Spirit with testimony to the deity and lordship of the Father and the Son. Drawing extensively on recent studies of prosopological exegesis and divine testimony in the ancient world, Hughes demonstrates how these three pre-Nicene Christian writers utilized Scripture and the conventions of ancient rhetoric and exegesis to formulate a highly innovative approach to the Holy Spirit that would contribute to the identification of the Spirit as the third person of the Trinity.

Some spin-off material building out of this project will be presented at this year’s Society of Biblical Literature International and Annual Meetings in what I’m jokingly calling my “book tour.” The papers I’m presenting are as follows:

SBL International Meeting (Helsinki)

“Irenaeus and the ‘Gnostic’ Roots of ‘Orthodox’ Pneumatology” (Early Christianity section)

“The Spirit of Barnabas: Pneumatology and the Construction of an Early Christian Identity” (Apostolic Fathers section)

SBL Annual Meeting (Denver)

“The Prosopological Speech of the Son and the Development of Pre-Nicene Christology” (Development of Early Christian Theology section)
