Volume Description

‘Our understanding of the Holy Spirit is sadly beset with aberrations, exaggerations and over-reactions. Many Reformed believers, rightly troubled by various excesses and abuses, may be in danger of knowing all that the Holy Spirit is not, and all the things which he does not do. Let John Owen correct and instruct you!

This is a massive, thorough, sweeping consideration of the personality and operations of the third Person of the Godhead. It is divided into five main elements. The first gives us a more general introduction, considering the Spirit’s nature, names, divinity and personality, creative operations, and dispensation. The second looks at his Old Testament operations preparatory to the New Testament, and then at his particular work with regard to Christ and his people in the new creation. The third concentrates on the Spirit’s work in regeneration and conversion. The fourth section addresses the question of holiness and sanctification under the influences of the Holy Spirit. The fifth and final book argues for the necessity of holiness in new covenant believers from God’s nature, from God’s election of his people, from his divine commands, from his sending of Christ, and from the condition of saints in the world.

This is a wonderfully practical treatment of the Holy Spirit. It teaches us to know him, delight in him, and rely upon him. The earnest Christian seeking a counterpoint to the often shallow and too-often misguided pneumatology of the present day will find Owen a comprehensive and compelling helper.’

– Jeremy Walker, Pastor, Maidenbower Baptist Church, Crawley, UK.
