Moltmann devotes his attention to developing a holistic doctrine of the person and work of the Holy Spirit within a Trinitarian framework. Among the two paths of access to pneumatology—the theological conception of God the Holy Spirit and the personal, shared experience of the Spirit—he intentionally seeks to begin with the second path. For him experience of the Spirit can be defined as "an awareness of God in, with, and beneath the experience of life, which gives us assurance of God’s fellowship, friendship, and love" (17). Thus for him "the human experience of God is the foundation of human theology" (5). In sum, Moltmann argues that theology should, on the basis of the experience of the Spirit, be able to reflect two primary movements: the experience of God in all things and the experience of all things in God.
