The astounding expansion of Pentecostalism around the world since the early twentieth century, and the rapid growth of the charismatic movement within many denominations since the 1960s, have pushed the doctrine of the Holy Spirit to the forefront of contemporary theological issues.
In this book, Sinclair Ferguson seeks to construct a theology of the Spirit that takes into account both salvation history and contemporary questions about the meaning of Pentecost or the gifts of the Spirit. His study of the role of the Spirit in the ministry of Christ and his discussion of the Spirit's cosmic and eschatological work are particularly noteworthy. Regardless of one's theological leanings, the reader will find much to learn from this important study of the doctrine of the Holy Spirit.
