Kyle Hughes has written an important book, and he joins David Capes on “The Stone Chapel” to discuss it. The book is How the Spirit Became God: The Mosaic of Early Christian Pneumatology (Cascade Books, 2020). In this book Hughes tells a compelling story of how the church came to recognize the Spirit as divine and as a “person.” With a firm grasp on relevant primary and second literature he makes the case for an early and consistent divine pneumatology arising out of how Christians over several centuries read their Scriptures, the Old and New Testaments.
