Inter-Varsity Press The Holy Spirit: Contours of Christian Theology

The Holy Spirit, once forgotten, has been "rediscovered" in the twentieth century - or has he? Sinclair Ferguson believes we should rephrase this common assertion: "While his work has been recognized, the Spirit himself remains to many Christians an anonymous, faceless aspect of the divine being." In order to redress this balance, Ferguson seeks to recover the who of the Spirit as much as the what and how. Ferguson's study is rooted and driven by the scriptural story of the Spirit in creation and redemption.

This book took me a long time to read and was challenging at times. Challenging is not a bad thing. I would recommend it to anyone interested in knowing more about God. I will come back to this one again and again.

Ferguson's book on the The Holy Spirit is fresh and living theology, unlike the plodding work of Kuyper or Owen. It is a wonderful blend of systematic and biblical theology, and I find insights on nearly every page. I, personally, would consider the current standard work on the topic in terms of its reliable scholarship and genuine biblical, and, I believe, Spirit-led focus.

The only reason I didn't give 5 stars is due to Sinclairs writing style. Scholarly book, but so dense with meaning it can get very laborious at times. Its like reading a modern day John Owen. Very helpful for gaining an all around biblical veiw of the Spirit and His work. Not a book on guidance or an "experience" related pneumatology. Great for understanding the Spirit in a systematic theology fashion.
