G. E. Hawthorne on the Holy Spirit
I've been reading Gerald F. Hawthorne's The Presence and the Power: The Significance of the Holy Spirit in the Life and Ministry of Jesus Christ. It comes highly recommended by such luminaries as Scot McKnight and Sam Storms. Here's a great little summation of the Spirit's work (from p. 53):
The Spirit of God is powerfully present in his world, involving himself primarily in the world of human beings, coming upon people so as to infuse them with new life, new vigor, new vision, new strength, new powers of body and mind in order that each person so infused might play a significant, important, and decisive role in the course of redemptive history.Just thought I'd share.
