Rev. Brendan Leahy is Professor of Systematic Theology at the Pontifical University of St Patrick's College, Maynooth, in Ireland. He is a von Balthasar scholar and an ecumenist and has also written articles and books on interreligious dialogue, issues facing the Church in the 21st century, renewal in the Church, and the priesthood.
The Holy Spirit is sort of the Harry Houdini of divinity, forever busting loose in seemingly impossible ways ... the movements are the most remarkable recent example ... Leahy provides a concise yet theologically profound reading of this great escape act by the Spirit, one that's especially commendable for being neither cynical nor overly romantic. -- John L. Allen Jr. "Senior Correspondent for the "National Catholic Reporter" and author of "The Future Church""
