Product Description

Of the Holy Trinity, most of us are confident in our understanding of God the Father and Christ the Son. But what about the Holy Spirit who stands at "the left hand of God"? What is his mysterious purpose? How can we see this force or know his relationship to God---and to our lives?

Loving God Up Close illuminates a mystery at the center of our lives as Christians and shows how we can let the enormous force of the Holy Spirit bring us closer to God---and love him more than we ever thought we could. Miller looks at how often the Holy Spirit is mentioned throughout the Bible and how this aspect of the Trinity has influenced history and the works of many of the world's great thinkers. He presents dozens of real-life examples of a spirit infusing ordinary people with divine energy, hope, and extraordinary courage in the most desperate of times. And he demonstrates that a new awakening to the Holy Spirit is essential to rebuilding our communities and revitalizing our prayers.

Publisher's Weekly

Most Christians can easily understand God as Father and have no difficulty in conjuring a vivid mental image of Jesus Christ as God's Son. But few are able to summarily and succinctly describe the Holy Spirit, including its position within the Trinity or its role as helper. Miller, Beeson Divinity School professor and author of Singer Trilogy and The Unchained Soul, irons out what he believes are confused misconceptions surrounding the Holy Spirit. (Strangely, one of those misconceptions is about the gender of the Holy Spirit; although Miller acknowledges evidence that the Bible uses a feminine noun for the Spirit, he insists that the Holy Spirit is a "he," co-eternal and co-equal to God and Christ.) Noting the varied biblical symbols of the Holy Spirit, which include wind, fire and oil, Miller does an exemplary job combining storytelling with biblical exposition as he gently instructs readers to carefully study each mode. The fire in Acts 2, for instance, demonstrates "incendiary joy" as the Holy Spirit fell upon the early Christians and produced a passion unlike anything ever experienced. Miller claims that the Holy Spirit's work is to produce a hunger for God, an excitement that purifies the heart and ushers in energy to achieve God's will on earth. Miller exceeds expectations with this lovely and timely work, which is among the best he has written and deserves a permanent place in both professional and personal libraries.
