The Holy Spirit (Contours Of Christian Theology Series)

Sinclair B Ferguson

The Holy Spirit (Contours Of Christian Theology Series)

Sinclair B Ferguson

$24.99

Paperback

The Holy Spirit, once forgotten, has been "rediscovered" in the twentieth century – or has he? Sinclair Ferguson believes we should rephrase this common assertion: "While his work has been recognised, the Spirit himself remains to many Christians an anonymous, faceless aspect of the divine being." In order to redress this balance, Ferguson seeks to recover the who of the Spirit fully as much as the what and how.

Ferguson's study is rooted and driven by the scriptural story of the Spirit in creation and redemption. Throughout he shows himself fully at home in the church's historical theology of the Spirit and conversant with the wide variety of contemporary Christians who have explored the doctrine of the Holy Spirit.

Foundational issues are surveyed and clarified. Hard questions are explored and answered. Clarity and insight radiate from every page. Here is the mature reflection of a Reformed theologian who will summon respect and charity from those who disagree.

CONTOURS OF CHRISTIAN THEOLOGY SERIES General Editor: Gerald Bray The CONTOURS OF CHRISTIAN THEOLOGY is a series of concise introductory textbooks focused on the main themes of Christian theology. The authors introduce the perennial questions and their time-tested solutions while moving forward to explore contemporary issues and rework evangelical formulations of the faith.

Exceptional work by a renown reformed scholar
5 stars By Wally Bocos, Aug 23 2017
Exceptional book on helping one understand who the Holy Spirit is and what His role is in the economic trinity - the outworking of redemptive history. 

It is an academic book so it takes some thinking and only minor references to Greek and Latin. That aside, it was a joy to read because it helped me understand my God the Spirit in a more intimate way.
