Product Description

The role of the Holy Spirit in the development of the early church was absolutely crucial as the New Testament documents were being written and circulated. However many first-century believers, often unacquainted with the Old Testament, had little knowledge of the work of God's Spirit. Therefore the New Testament wr sought to explain his character and mission in the events they recorded and through the letters they penned. Nevertheless, many Christians today have only a vague understanding of the Holy Spirit: the comfort he offers, the gifts he imparts, but few could articulate his vital role in the life of every believer.

Taking a "text-driven" approach, Warrington moves beyond the controversy and sensationalism associated with charismatic phenomena, to examine the third person of the Trinity himself. Progressing from Matthew to Revelation, this in-depth study allows the scriptures to speak out of their original contextual situations and into our lives today.

Readers will gain an appreciation of the Spirit as a complex, wise, creative, powerful, and personal member of the Godhead who is sent to equip, empower, affirm, inspire, gift, and ultimately transform the people of God. Each chapter concludes with helpful study questions and a useful bibliography.
