Product Description

IVP's Bible Speaks Today series approaches important theological themes found in Scripture, rather than giving commentary on specific books. In this volume, The Holy Spirit, Keith Warrington seeks to explain the biblical role of the Holy Spirit in conversation with Church tradition. Yet, he also seeks to push the understanding of the doctrine forward to understand its place in contemporary culture and the religious life of the church. In effect, Warrington gives a "theological exegesis" of the Bible's witness to the Spirit and its role in the believer's life. Warrington's scope covers both testaments, spending considerable time in developing the understanding of the Spirit in the Gospels, Acts, and in the Pauline epistles as well as the Old Testament.

Publisher's Description

A cursory reading of the Bible, particularly the Old Testament, would lead to some unfortunate conclusions: the Holy Spirit acts only intermittently, always fleetingly, in the lives of only important people, never the everyday earnest follower of God. Such a seemingly aloof Spirit would hardly inspire devotion, barely even pique our scholarly interest. But the story of the Holy Spirit is epic, stretching from the Bible's earliest pages to its last breath. And when Jesus left his disciples and went to heaven, he gave the best gift he could--the Holy Spirit--knowing that he will be our dynamic guide and partner as we seek to live as God’s people. In this practical, biblically based exploration of the person and activity of the Spirit, Keith Warrington encourages believers to recognize that the same Spirit seeks to encounter us and desires that we encounter him.

Editorial Reviews

"Most Christian readers will be delighted to find that Warrington's book englightens, stimulates, and invigorates their thinking about the third person of the trinity. This primer on the Holy Spirit will be a valuable addition to church, seminary, and personal libraries."
