THE WIND BLOWS GENTLY: REFLECTIONS ON THE HOLY SPIRIT IN THE THEOLOGY OF KH MISKOTTE

Ockert Meyer

Abstract


Not much is written about the work or the Person of the Holy Spirit in the theology
of the Dutch theologian, KH Miskotte. That is partly due to the fact that Miskotte
never developed a separate doctrine of the Spirit, something that is very clear when
his theological works is studied. However, the moment when his so-called
devotional writings (which for the sake of this paper include sermons, meditations,
bible studies etc) is included in the study, one is amazed at the frequency in which
the Spirit features. In this paper it is shown how his speech on the Spirit is fully
consistent with the wider aim of his theology, as well as how it defines the vitally
important pneumatological moment in the ordinary life.
