(p.193) The Holy Spirit, the Story of God
Divine Multiplicity

Sam Laurent

Fordham University Press

This chapter explores the possibilities of a pneumatology of story, envisioning the trinitarian Spirit of the Christian tradition as the “paradoxically multiple story of God.” It suggests that the notion of Spirit as Story provides a conceptual framework for understanding both divine and creaturely multiplicity, not as challenge or predicament, but as the very structure of creaturely life with God. Drawing on the work of Eugene Rogers and Kathryn Tanner, the chapter employs their concepts of the paraphysicality and incarnationality of the Spirit to describe the fundamentally diversifying work of the Spirit within God's trinitarian engagement with creation. It concludes by turning to Laurel Schneider's notion of the “narrative forms of truth-making” to flesh out an understanding of “the role of the incarnational Spirit in the diversity of religious views”.
