by Edgar N. Howell, Ph.D.
“The Holy Spirit is God’s ever-divine person of power who grants spiritual gifts and graces to people in the world of God’s creation,” says Dr. Edgar N. Howell. Throughout his years of pastoral service, he became increasingly aware that people were giving lip and memory service to the Spirit. Inspired by the Holy Spirit, this writing is presented for the spiritual growth, reflection, and meditation of God’s people.
This invaluable study guide presents 126 scripture passages that refer to the Holy Spirit, explains their message, and reflects on how they should be understood and appreciated. Each short lesson presents the biblical reference, the agents or people involved, the location, and the major action. Then the author presents his reflection on the passage, followed by a short spirited prayer. Space is provided for the recording of notes.
As you read this book, Dr. Howell says, “I pray for you: ‘May God’s love enfold you; may the grace of Christ endow you; and may the Holy Spirit enliven you. Amen.’”
