Fall in love with the Holy Spirit Aug 11, 2006
Torrey, although thorough and systematic in his teaching, presents the Holy Spirit in simple, powerful language that will help the believer see the Holy Spirit's role in their lives, the lives of their church, and in the lives of the lost. Unfortunately, in reaction to the Charismatic movement, most of the fundamental evangelical teaching of the last 50 years has downplayed the Holy Spirit. Because Torrey lived and taught not just before the Charismatic movement, but also during a time of great revival, I feel personally that he has far better balance on the topic than most modern conservative authors. While I doubt there are any evangelical pastors or laymen that deny the Holy Spirit is a person, and a member of the Godhead; the vast majority seem uncomfortable discussing the Holy Ghost. The overwhelming love that He shows us, and his role in the believer's life as put forth by Torrey from the Word of God are the focus of this book.
Unquestioningly THE classic work on the Holy Spirit Jun 3, 2005
If you are seeking to understand the application of the Holy Spirit's power, holiness, and guidance in your personal Christian character and witness, then this is the book for you. Not only does Torrey take the reader through the Scriptures to define the person and work of the Holy Spirit, but he also guides the reader through the steps of personal application in their own lives. However, this work is not for the timid or young believer. If you are a fully devoted follower of Christ and ready for the next step, then buy this book now.
A Great Book On the Subject of the Power of the Holy Spirit May 2, 2003
Torrey never ceases to amaze me with his systematic way of teaching the Bible. In this book he shows plainly from the Bible that God's promise of the Holy Spirit is for Christians then and now. Yes this is good book to learn about the person of the Holy Spirit, but also this book teaches about the power of God through the fullness of the Spirit for witnessing that every Christian can have in their lives.
Generally Useful Book Jan 8, 2001
I've found this book to be useful with the beginning probably more useful than the end. If anyone has had their belief in the Trinity challenged, and they aren't sure how to defend that the Holy Spirit is real and does have a personality, then you might want to read this book.
