Item description for Paraclete: The Spirit of Truth in the Church by Andrew Apostoli & Benedict J. Groeschel...

Overview
Fr. Apostoli, with pastoral sensitivity, helps the reader grasp the truth about the Spirit of Truth who leads the Church and each of us into the freedom won for us by Christ. Nothing but the truth. That's what Jesus promised when he told his apostles that after his death the Spirit of Truth would come upon them. Twenty-one centuries later, we might ask: What happened next? Did the Spirit descend? Did the Spirit stay? Is the Spirit with us today? If so, how does the Spirit guide the Church? Guide individual members of the Church? Guide the teaching authority of the Church? Will the Spirit ever leave the Church?

Reviews - What do customers think about Paraclete: The Spirit of Truth in the Church?

The Paraclete as Advocate  Aug 22, 2005
Fr. Apostoli, a frequent host on the Eternal Word Television Network, demonstrates his ability to present a complicated topic with clarity and depth. His first two chapters are rich with scriptural references on the mission of Jesus. Next, we learn of the Holy Spirit's mission as implied in Jesus' promise to the apostles that "another Paraclete" would come and be their advocate forever. The role of the second Paraclete, according to scripture, consists of witnessing on Jesus' behalf; proving the world wrong about sin, justice, and condemnation; and "guiding you in all truth."

In later chapters the author addresses the Spirit's guidance of pastors and the laity. The laity, he explains, share the threefold mission of Jesus. The lay interpretation of Jesus' priestly role is primarily to pray and to offer "spiritual sacrifices," in their daily activities and relationships. The laity participate in Jesus' kingly office by imitating Him and serving others as He did. Finally, lay persons are called to the prophetic office through giving witness directly and by example; recognizing truth and error in matters of faith and morals; and exercising "the grace of the word," being open to God's word and sharing it with others.

In his introduction to "Paraclete," Fr. Benedict Groeschel writes, "You can never get too much on the Holy Spirit." Fr, Apostoli proves him right in this new work, which would be a useful resource for bible study and faith sharing groups.
