    The Work of the Holy Spirit


    Author(s): Kuyper, Abraham (1837-1920)


    Publisher: Grand Rapids, MI: Christian Classics Ethereal Library


    Description: "Even though we honor the Father and believe on the Son,


    how little do we live in the Holy Spirit!" Throughout the history


    of the Christian tradition, the Holy Spirit has been one of the


    most elusive aspects of the faith. During Kuyper's time, very


    little attention had been given to the person and works of the


    Holy Spirit. Kuyper recognized this void, and as the editor of


    the weekly religious publication entitled The Herald, Kuyper


    dedicated approximately one hundred short entries to the


    works of the Holy Spirit.The Work of the Holy Spirit is a


    compilation of these entries organized into three Volumes.


    Volume One addresses the influence of the Holy Spirit in the


    Church as a whole, while Volumes Two and Three focus on


    the works of the Holy Spirit in the individual. Kuyper's entries


    provide a comprehensive study of the Holy Spirit, exploring


    in detail how the Holy Spirit sanctifies both the Church and


    its members.
