Of the Holy Trinity, most of us are confident in our understanding of God the Father and Christ the Son. But what about the Holy Spirit who stands at 'the left hand of God'? What is his mysterious purpose? How can we see this force or know his relationship to God---and to our lives?
Loving God Up Close illuminates a mystery at the center of our lives as Christians and shows how we can let the enormous force of the Holy Spirit bring us closer to God---and love him more than we ever thought we could. Miller looks at how often the Holy Spirit is mentioned throughout the Bible and how this aspect of the Trinity has influenced history and the works of many of the world's great thinkers. He presents dozens of real-life examples of a spirit infusing ordinary people with divine energy, hope, and extraordinary courage in the most desperate of times. And he demonstrates that a new awakening to the Holy Spirit is essential to rebuilding our communities and revitalizing our prayers.
