~ A cursory reading of the Bible, particularly the Old Testament, would lead to some unfortunate conclusions: the Holy Spirit acts only intermittently, always fleetingly, in the lives of only important people, never the everyday earnest follower of God. Such a seemingly aloof Spirit would hardly inspire devotion, barely even pique our scholarly interest. But the story of the Holy Spirit is epic, stretching from the Bible's earliest pages to its last breath. And when Jesus left his disciples and went to heaven, he gave the best gift he could--the Holy Spirit--knowing that he will be our dynamic guide and partner as we seek to live as Godas people. In this practical, biblically based exploration of the person and activity of the Spirit, Keith Warrington encourages believers to recognize that the same Spirit seeks to encounter us and desires that we encounter him.
