Who is the Holy Spirit? What is He Like? As the revealer of the Scriptures, He often places all the emphasis on revealing to us the Father and His Son, selflessly staying in the background, knowing the Father and Son must be revealed before we come into "the more intimate fellowship with Himself." It's primarily through His works, both within us and without, that we come to an understanding of the Spirit. Who He is is bound forever to the understanding that all glory belongs to God alone. This is the foundation of Abraham Kuyper's writing inAMG's Concise Works of the Holy Spirit.
Most of the writings about the Holy Spirit deal with only one aspect or work we have books on the gifts, on the work of the Holy Spirit in salvation (and the part the human will play in it) on sanctification, on inspiration, on prayer. Abraham Kuyper combined in one volume a magnificent overview of all the works of the Holy Spirit, beginning with the works within the Church as a whole.
Kuyper then declares the inward works of the Holy Spirit, which he does in two parts. In the first part, Kuyper deals with the words of the Holy Spirit that have to do with our salvation and justification. In the second part, Kuyper expounds the works of the Holy Spirit that come after our salvation.
ABRAHAM KUYPER was a renowned Dutch theologian and political leader. Educated in Dutch Reformed theology at the University of Leyden in the Netherlands, Kuyper served as a pastor from 1868-1874, editor-in-chief of the weekly publication Herautas, and the editor of the daily publication De Standaard for almost fifty years. He also founded the Free Reformed University in Amsterdam in 1880 and the Free Reformed Church in 1886.
From 1901-1905 Kuyper served as prime minister of the Netherlands. Kuyper believed in using the church's influence to promote a "purer public national life." His goal was to give the "common people" a voice in government, and his contributions led to suffrage rights for all citizens and the development of today's plural society in the Netherlands.
