    It seems awareness of the Holy Spirit has been spreading like wildfire since Francis Chans Forgotten God book was released in 2009. Prior to this revival, it seemed the Holy Spirit was the most neglected member of the Trinity. I believe this is largely due to the fact that there is not a proper understanding and teaching of the Holy Spirit.

    In, Who Is The Holy Spirit, Sproul sets out to distinguish the Holy Spirit as a powerful and essential part of a Christians walk. The first chapter confirms the Spirits personhood as well as co-equality with the Father and Son. There is a vital distinction one must make in their understanding of the Spirit: The Holy Spirit is a person, a who, not a thing, a what. The Spirit is a living, active being just as the Father and Son are.

    Often times many Christians fall into the trap of thinking the Holy Spirit did not come into existence until the New Testament. Sproul utilizes Scriptures and original Greek/Hebrew language to reveal that in fact the Spirit was alive from the beginning as seen in Genesis. He shares in the Trinitarian works of creation and redemption. He played a significant role from the establishment of creation and all through the Old Testament.

    Sproul spends the remainder of the book covering the Holy Spirits attributes.

    His role as a giver of Life

    He is an advocate to the Believer

    He sanctifies the Christian

    He anoints Believers for His service

    He brings a deeper understanding of the scriptures as the Illuminator

    After reading Francis Chans, The Forgotten God, and found that it was extremely thorough in presenting the Holy Spirit, I had high expectations of this book from Sproul. It definitely is a condensed version that is meant for a simple and basic understanding. I think new believers would benefit from what Sproul writes, but anyone looking for deeper aspects will need to search elsewhere.
