Quick easy read and yet deeply enlightening 25 Mar. 2011
By William D. Curnutt - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Pamphlet
The Gospel Coalition has put out eight individual booklets on different subjects. They deal with the core religious values of the Coalition.

This particular booklet by Kevin DeYoung gives you a good theology treatment of the Holy Spirit. Many people today are confused by the work of the Trinity. What does the Father do, what does the Son do and especially what role does the Holy Spirit contribute. DeYoung does a wonderful job of quickly separating the roles of each and then focusing in on the Holy Spirit. Plenty of scripture is included to help verify his views and help the reader come up with a quick reference guide for the indwelling of the Holy Spirit and the work of the Holy Spirit in the believers life.

This booklet will take you just an hour to read but will be worthy every minute. Even if you stop to check each reference you won't be more than two hours reading through this. It would be a great discussion started for a small Bible Study group as well as just a personal reference piece for anyone wondering about the work of the Holy Spirit, the "gifts" of the Holy Spirit and why we as Christians should even care about the Holy Spirit.

Christ promised the disciples that he would send "the comforter" to them after he left. He also said that the Holy Spirit would give them power to do the ministry. That was true then and is true today. The apostle Paul assures us that "He who is in us is greater than he who is in the world." What he means is that the Holy Spirit dwelling within each Christian gives them the power and authority to withstand the attacks of the devil, to overcome the evil influences of this world. The Holy Spirit also has the task of convicting us of sin. He has an important role. One that we need to be aware of and be grateful to God for allowing the Holy Spirit to reside in us.

Enjoy this booklet as well as the other seven from the Gospel Coalition.

good, basic, brief introduction 20 Jan. 2014
By D. T. Kleven - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Pamphlet Verified Purchase
This is intended to be a brief introduction to the Holy Spirit. DeYoung starts with "Who is the Holy Spirit," and discusses that he is a Person, that he is God, and distinct from the Father and the Son.

The Work of the Holy Spirit takes up the rest of the booklet: convicting, converting, applying salvation, glorifying Christ, sanctifying us, equipping us, and being the seal of the promise of our future inheritance.

He briefly touches on the "controversial gifts," and doesn't take any sides (TGC doesn't take sides). Here's his conclusion:

"I believe both sides have come to see that they agree on more than they once thought. One of the encouraging signs in the evangelical world is how cessationists and continuationists have been able to partner and worship together in recent years, realizing that their commonalities in the gospel are far greater than the issues that separate them with regard to the spiritual gifts." (p. 22)

I certainly hope for more of this!

The book is loaded throughout with biblical references to look up if you want. There are glimpses of DeYoung's style and humor, but it is largely subdued and he is focused on his topic. I didn't laugh out loud, like I have in The Hole in Our Holiness, or Crazy Busy, but that wasn't the point.

This is a good, basic, brief introduction. From here, I heartily recommend J.I. Packer's Keep in Step With the Spirit, and Martyn Lloyd-Jones's The Baptism and Gifts of the Spirit.

Very good introduction to the Holy Spirit 2 Aug. 2014
By Ian Acheson - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
This is a short introduction to the Holy Spirit and is very useful for anyone who is uncertain of the Spirit's role in relation to the Father and the Son.

The majority of the booklet covers the work of the Spirit which DeYoung has divided into seven categories: the Holy Spirit convicts, converts, applies, glorifies, sanctifies, equips, and promises. Filled with relevant Scripture references, these serve to provide a good outline as to the work of the Spirit.
