The Holy Spirit is invoked in Scripture, Sermons, and Bible Studies, but do we really know how to recognize the Spirit's presence in the world? What does it mean that the Holy Spirit is at work in us? How and where do we read the signs of power of the Holy Spirit in our lives and the world? One of this country's most dynamic teachers of Scripture, Amos Yong, offers this incisive look at what the apostles have to say.
Begining with Luke, the most extensive apostolic writer on the Holy Spirit, Yong offers a series of meditations on Luke and Acts to show how the winds of the Spirit blew in the lives of Jesus, his disciples, and the earliest Christians--all so that we can see and participate in the work of the Spirit today.

"Your people shall be my people, and your God, my God" (Ruth 1:16). Like Ruth in the Old Testament, every Gentile believer has come out of the land of famine and into the spiritual realm of abundance in the name of Jesus. But unlike Ruth, we have turned our backs on the Jewish people, the relatives of the Messiah. We need to confess personally and corporately on behalf of the Church for centuries of persecution of the Jewish people, looking in these days for every opportunity to bless and not curse them. Once again, Israel and her people are center stage at a crucial moment in world history, and this book shows why the Church must effect reconciliation and why our prayers are vital in this hour. If we will make the same covenent pledge to Israel that Ruth made to Naomi, the Church will never be the same!
