ABSTRACT
Holmes's latest book considers the centrality of Christ's presence for Christian moral discourse. Reflecting upon the fact that the Scriptures describe a present Lord who is presently ministering to creation, the work delves into the scriptural, theological and moral implications of God's presence in Christ through the Spirit. The consequent Christological investigation elaborates on Christ's presence and the necessary transformation his presence effects, such that human behaviour here and now is a necessary result of encountering the present Christ.
