  1. David Coffey (2001). The Spirit of Christ as Entelechy. Philosophy and Theology 13 (2):363-398.
    This article pursues Rahner’s idea that the Holy Spirit has the role of “Spirit of Christ” even before the Incarnation, namely as “entelechy” directed to the Christ event. In the article, particular use is made of a biblical text hitherto not invoked in this connection, namely 1 Peter 1:11, from which a biblical base for this theology is developed.
