'When Jesus Said Good-Bye provides us a contemplative exposition of Jesus' last words to His disciples as recorded in chapters 14-16 of John's Gospel. Dr. Carver ponders the biblical context, weaving perceptive citations into his discussions of the text, showing how the totality of Scripture gains clarity when brought to bear on Jesus' final message. He also enriches his presentation by utilizing some of the contemplative masters of the church to show the spiritually transforming power of this passage.' -Gerard Reed
This contribution by Dr. Frank Carver is the product of fruitful, painstaking research into the intracacies of the Beloved Disciple's understanding of the Holy Spirit. He not only surveys what the Fourth Gospel has to say about the Spirit but also provides eminently useful insights into the New Testament's presentation of the Spirit in His relation to Jesus Christ. Carver uncovers the original meaning of John's theology with confidence and poignancy, while also displaying these truths powerfully to our own generation. When Jesus Said Good-bye goes far in deepening the reader's understandings of the intimate workings of the Holy Spirit. He is Christ's 'other Self' and as such is how we are to live as followers of Jesus. One cannot read this study thoughtfully and prayerfully without being moved to an increrased desire for a great oneness with the Father and with the Son through the life of the Spirit.
