A tribute to Geoffrey Thomas, his work on the Holy Spirit, and his life as a minister of the Spirit.
In The Holy Spirit and Reformed Spirituality, many authors have joined together to honor Geoff Thomas and ultimately to honor the Holy Spirit. The book is divided into four parts, each focusing on Geoff Thomas as a minister, Christ and salvation, growth in holiness, and ministry.
How does God bring His Word into our lives? The answer is by the Holy Spirit. By the Spirit the Word was revealed and written. By the Spirit the Word became flesh and dwelt among us. By the Spirit the Word roots itself in the hearts of sinners and produces fruit. Calvin recognized long ago that the Holy Spirit is the bond of union between believers and Christ. Jonathan Edwards said that the Spirit is the sum of all Christ bought for His people with His precious blood. In this book, a team of pastor-theologians uncover the rich biblical teachings about the work of the Holy Spirit. How was the Spirit involved in the human life of Jesus Christ? What is a spiritual person? How does the Spirit open the mind of sinners to trust in Christ? What does it mean to serve God in the power of the Spirit? How does the Spirit's sovereign work relate to our responsibility in evangelism? These questions and more are addressed in this book.
