Customer Reviews for Zondervan The Person and Work of the Holy Spirit

Zondervan The Person and Work of the Holy Spirit

What are the gifts of the Spirit? What's the difference between baptism with the Spirit and the filling of the Spirit? What about speaking with tongues? In this classic, comprehensive coverage of the Holy Spirit, Torrey answers these and other questions. Because one must first know the Spirit Himself before correctly understanding His work, Torrey begins by carefully describing who the Holy Spirit is. Then, he delves into the work of the Spirit in the world and in the life of Christians. An extensive study of the baptism with the Spirit is especially timely and profitable.

I found The Person and Work of the Holy Spirit to be a diamond in the rough. I was looking for a better understanding of the Holy Spirit and found a treasure trove of information.

R. A. Torrey is an excellent writer who is able to take many variables about a complex topic and put it into language and order that makes things very clear and easy to understand. This book about the Holy Spirit is a must read for any Christian who feels a deeper knowledge and understanding of Him is necessary if we are to walk in full obedience to God. He is God's voice, speaking in our hearts about what He desires for us and requires OF us to do in this world. Torrey very clearly and convincingly expresses the PERSON of the Holy Spirit and gives ample biblical backing to His personhood. He explains how very important it is to have just as intimate and direct relationship with Him as we do with our Lord, Jesus Christ. He also details the many different ways the Holy Spirit communes with us and equips us with tools to do His work. After reading this book, I understand now just how limiting it is to think that the Holy Spirit is just an impersonal "force" and that it is to be 'claimed and used" for it's power. How blasphemic that sounds now! Reading this book will give you a whole new appreciation and REVERENCE to the fullness of His place in the Trinity.

I had not considered this book since about 1960. Recommended by a recent friend, I ordered and read it with the privilege of experiencing the affirmation and confirmation of the Holy Spirit as I read. As Dr. Torrey proclaims, God the Holy Spirit glorifies and magnifies both the Father and Son when our hearts are responsive to Him, the Holy Spirit. My heart, soul, mind, and body have been enriched with faith, peace, love, joy, holiness, righteousness, grace, truth...for the last two weeks, in answer to my prayer for such grace as I read this book.

I have to admit that it was the reviews I read about this book both on Amazon.com and Christianbook.com that caused me to purchase it at all. But I was truly blessed by the reading of this book. Having grown up in a fairly Pentecostal (yet non-denominational) environment I found myself ignorant of the fundamental aspects of the Holy Spirit beyond knowing He is the third Person of the Trinity. Torrey's Scripture-based discourse should be considered required reading for anyone serious about developing their personal relationship with the Lord. I have purchased several copies and have handed them out. I certainly appreciate true men of God allowing God to use them such that the knowledge He reveals to them can be something enjoyed by all. It's good to see God still does that and it didn't stop with men like Paul or John.

I have had this book for some time but, only recently have begun to read it. It is a truly great inspiration to me. One that brings you into His presence as a real person of the Trinity. I am purchasing a couple more to give to friends.

I am finding this book thoroughly enjoyable. It is an informative look at the Holy Spirit that I had never noticed before. It is backed up with Scripture. I find older material is sometimes refreshing. It is a revised edition. The first original copy was dated 1910.
