Veli-Matti Kärkkäinen is a Finnish Pentecostal theologian and Professor of Systematic Theology at Fuller

Watch him discuss the larger systematic project.

Theological Seminary. He is on the podcast discussing his on-going multi-volume systematic theology. In this episode we discuss his theological method, the nature of divine revelation, and the role our pluralistic context plays in constructive theology. Then we look at a number of themes in his most recently released volume, Spirit and Salvation: A Constructive Christian Theology for the Pluralistic World. In this volume he develops doctrines of pneumatology and soteriology in dialogue with the diverse global Christian tradition and with other major living faiths — Judaism, Islam, Buddhism, and Hinduism. I anticipate the theology nerds enjoying this conversation and looking forward to a return visit when volume 5 comes out!

Join me this August on the trip!
