The Holy Spirit

by John Owen

The Pastor’s Monthly Book Selection–January, 2020

It has been noted that the doctrine of the Holy Spirit is both sorely neglected in some Christian circles and terribly distorted in others. Therefore, I was greatly encouraged when I began reading the Banner of Truth edition of John Owen’s book, The Holy Spirit. Abridged and put in modern English, this work is a pleasure to read. While it is theologically deep, it is also spiritually encouraging. I specifically recommend it to those who would like to know more about the Holy Spirit but are hesitant to delve into heavy works of theology. By writing in a very pastoral style, Owen expounds on the nature and operation of the Spirit in a way that warms the heart as well as challenges the mind. Having read a number of works by this author, I would say that The Holy Spirit is one of his finest. Read this book to develop a greater appreciation for the third person of the Trinity and the gracious work of sanctification He promises to do in every believer.
