IBelieveInTheHolySpiritThe I Believe series, of which Rector Michael Green is the editor, illustrate basic Christian teaching in practical, understandable language.

 

 

 

The volume on the Holy Spirit covers the Old and New Testament, and topics such as the relationship of the Spirit to Jesus, His mission, the church, and the believer’s initiation, gifts and fullness.

Of particular importance is Green’s coverage of the Spirit’s baptism as a one-stage initiation into Christ as against the two-stage approach that is purported in some circles.

By claiming Christ washed the church (Ephesians 5:25), which was a once and for all event (Romans 6:3ff), to incorporate believers into the church (1 Corinthians 12:13), the author confirms our secure status. Nevertheless, the life breathed by Charismatic faith is warmly received.

A thorough and warm encounter and a better understanding of God’s Spirit awaits the reader.
