Westminster John Knox Press The Holy Spirit: A Guide to Christian Theology

A succinct historical and theological discussion of the Holy Spirit.

The Holy Spirit, written by leading contemporary theology Veli-Matti Karkkainen presents a very guided historical tour of Christian beliefs about the Holy Spirit. Beginning in the Apostolic era, and proceeding step-by-step Karrkainen also looks at the Patristic, Medieval, Reformation, Early Modern, and Twentieth Century interpretations of the Spirit.

Karkkainen's work is historically comprehensive (and includes coverage of non-western voices) though it remains succinct. An excellent primer for students, Karkkainen's work is accessible to those just beginning to study theology as well as for laity who seek to understand their faith at a deeper level.
