Publisher's Description

Who is the Holy Spirit? What role does the Spirit play in the life of the Church and of the individual Christian? Beginning with the belief in the Holy Spirit as a Person of God, and not just a "force," this book reveals the Catholic understanding of the presence and influence of the Spirit God in every aspect of the Christian life. The book focuses on the unique aspects and development of Catholic devotion to the Holy Spirit from antiquity to the present, culminating in a look at Catholic theology of the Holy Spirit today and the new and exciting ways the Spirit is working among Catholics and all Christians in the 20th and 21st centuries.

Editorial Reviews

This timely title arrives at a moment of the Holy Spirit’s strong movement within our beleaguered Church. Consider what we have witnessed in only a few short months: Pope Emeritus Benedict XVI’s prayer-inspired decision to retire; the election of Pope Francis by cardinals of the Conclave; and now our new Holy Father’s powerful example of teaching, first through his actions, then reinforced by the wisdom of his words, urging the need for our participation in deeper, wider outreach to the poor, the needy, and the Church’s youth.
In "The Person of the Holy Spirit," Alan Schrek traces the Spirit’s presence in creation, in Spirit’s appeal to the hearts of God’s people, in openness to the Wisdom revealed to and through the prophets. After Jesus’s revelation of the Pentecost gift of the Holy Spirit’s coming to us as Advocate and Counselor, the Church’s understanding of the Holy Spirit’s role in the life of the Church grew and was clarified. Schrek
Examining, as if every facet of a diamond, the author focuses on one aspect, then another, of the many gifts the Spirit offers us. Starting with devotion and prayer to the Holy Spirit, we are led to consider the Spirit’s guidance in truth, holiness, as Gift providing gifts, relationship with the Church, with our Blessed Mother, and in the dynamic of our Church in the graced present of the here and now.
Refreshed and inspiring, The Gift is highly recommended for parish, seminary, and university libraries, and students in the upper years of high school. —Francis O’Dell, OFM, Catholic Library World
