Book Blurbs: Leo Sánchez, Sculptor Spirit

Leopoldo A. Sánchez M. discusses his new book, Sculptor Spirit: Models of Sanctification from Spirit Christology with Erik Herrmann. Dr. Sánchez is the Werner R. H. and Elizabeth R. Krause Professor of Hispanic Ministries. In the book, he carefully crafts a Spirit Christology, which considers the role of God’s Spirit in the life and mission of Jesus and leads to five models of sanctification that can help Christians discern how the Spirit is at work in our lives. Sánchez’s work on the book was supported by a sabbatical research grant from the Louisville Institute.

The book is available at https://www.ivpress.com/sculptor-spirit.
