“What a rich compilation of studies is gathered together in this volume! The doctrine of the Holy Spirit is set before us in all its grandeur from biblical, doctrinal, historical, and pastoral perspectives, giving us a theological feast that is both attractive and satisfying. In these days in which the Spirit’s ministry in the church is identified either with extraordinary phenomena or emotional experiences, this book guides us to a biblical understanding of the Spirit as the one who exalts the Incarnate Word through the written Word, and applies redemption to those for whom Christ dies. Enjoy the banquet.” – Iain D. Campbell, pastor of the Free Church of Scotland in Point on the Isle of Lewis, Scotland
