Product Description

We tend to think of the Holy Spirit as the straggler of the Trinity, a latecomer in God's interaction with the world. But our first introduction to the Holy Spirit is not the drama of Pentecost in the second chapter of Acts. We first meet the Holy Spirit in the second verse of the Bible, hovering there, speaking the world into existence.Christopher Wright begins here and traces the Holy Spirit through the pages of the Old Testament. We see the Third Person of the Trinity in the decrees of prophets and psalmists, in the actions of judges and craftspeople, in the anointing of kings and the promise of a new creation.Knowable and discernable in the Old Testament, the Holy Spirit is thus eminently knowable to us. The witness of the whole of Scripture, from its first pages to its last, directs us to a Holy Spirit empowering the people of God, and sustaining and renewing the face of the earth.

    I love this book. It is a simple, easy read yet I found it enlightening. I really enjoyed the how Wright identified the continuity between the H.S. work in the OT and Jesus' ministry (the Messiah/Annointed). Of course, one expects this continuity but I can't recall actually having seen the continuity demonstrated in such a clear and simple manner. This would be a great book to work through in a church setting.
