NALWAMBA, Kuzipa M.B.  and  BUITENDAG, Johan. Vital force as a triangulated concept of nature and s(S)pirit. Herv. teol. stud. [online]. 2017, vol.73, n.3, pp.1-10. ISSN 2072-8050.

This article explores and seeks to appropriate theologically the African notion of vital force as a relational, non-reductionist ecological concept that would enrich the Christian doctrine of pneumatheology. The understanding that relational and pneumatological categories are viable within the theology-science dialogue is the broader framework within which this article is conceived. The relationship between natural theology and revelation provides an epistemological standpoint that does not divorce Spirit and reality.
