The crisis of impiety and the excessive claims of some to sinless perfection compel attention to the question of the holiness of the Spirit and the holiness of the Spirit's work to perform. With contempt for holiness on the one hand and proud claims to excellence on the other, where is the road that avoids both in favor of authentic piety?
Frank Stagg addresses this concern by explaining the Holy Spirit and its relevance to the needs and problems of today. Beginning with a strong chapter on the oneness of God, he examines biblical teachings on being filled with the Spirit, the work of the Spirit, tongues, and healing. Focusing on the trinity, Stagg takes his discussion beyond traditional explanations, leaving readers with the conclusion that the Spirit of God is God, who is living and acting in the world today. He also relates the doctrine of the Holy Spirit to charismatic gifts such as faith healing and speaking tongues.
