The past two centuries have seen a slow but definite turning away from enlightenment dismissal of the spiritual realm, and a new openness to spiritual realities, including the work of God the Holy Spirit, has emerged.
Theologian Ivan Satyavrata believes that while there is much to celebrate in this focus on the Spirit and his workings after several centuries of relative neglect, there is a pressing need to relate our present experience of the Spirit to the teaching of God's Word. In a context of growing cultural and religious plurality, how can we recognize where and how the Holy Spirit is present and at work today? This is a task to which this book is devoted.
As a theologian and leader of the church in India, Ivan Satyavrata brings a unique perspective to our understanding of the work of the Holy Spirit throughout the world. His voice makes a strong contribution to the Christian Doctrine in Global Perspective series, which is edited by David Smith with consulting editor John Stott and provides intercultural exposition of key tenets of Christian belief by leading international evangelical thinkers.
