"I am quite sure that many of the Lord’s people are none too clear upon the different aspects of the Holy Spirit’s Presence and ministry in the life of the believer, and that there is a good deal of confusion; that terms become mixed and there is not clear discernment of the specific significance of each term used in the Word of God. I mean the fact that we hear of those in the New Testament who were baptised with the Spirit, and filled with the Spirit, and sealed by the Spirit, and anointed; and it is important that we should be able to discriminate on these matters. It is not my intention to lead you out in such a discrimination that may come itself as we go on. What I am concerned and occupied with is the anointing as representing some particular aspect of the Holy Spirit’s presence and work." T. Austin-Sparks

Although the doctrine and work of the Holy Spirit is no longer being ignored in theology (as was often the case in centuries past), the authority of the Spirit remains essentially undefined. The need for such a definition, however, is urgent. Some dangerous trends in the contemporary understanding of the Spirit have developed (trends that can only be exposed through careful exegesis of Scripture and theological clarification). Indeed, some contemporary models often leave us with a nonauthoritative "Spirit" predisposed toward universalism, experientialism, or panentheism. This work will attempt to show that the nature of the Holy Spirit's authority can be clearly defined through biblical and systematic theology. When we investigate the Spirit's place within the pattern of divine authority, as specified in Scripture, we discover that the Holy Spirit indeed possesses a unique authority as divine Person, Christ's Executor, Teacher, and Governor of the Church. Such a work will be helpful for both the theologian and the pastor. First, definitions of the Spirit's authority will be developed through historical, exegetical, and theological analysis. Then these definitions will be applied to specific church practices, including hermeneutics, church structure and guidance, and Christian spirituality. A response will also be given to those "practical theologies" that are subtly diminishing the Spirit's authority in relation to the contemporary church.

The authors of A Disciple's Heart present Book Two in the Keys to Understanding Life Series, Feelings 101: Pain to Peace. Far from being "touchy-feely," Feelings 101: Pain to Peace focuses on a number of spiritual growth dynamics that we often overlook today. It aims to help us recognize when we are being attacked by Satan, and how to draw on who we are in Christ in order to engage more effectively in spiritual warfare. It examines the Scriptures' emphasis on awareness of our old and new selves and provides practical tools to hearing the Spirit's specific counsel and guidance in real-life trials with the heart. In illuminating how God designed our hearts to hear His voice, Feelings 101: Pain to Peace answers several important questions including: How are we to exercise our God-designed free will to fight our sinful nature and become seasoned disciples of Christ? How can we transform unwanted feelings to peace in any situation? How does the Spirit attempt to lead us through our hearts, and how do we hear Him? How can we use everyday life situations to renew our minds (Romans 12:2)? ---- This father and son team combines a variety of experiences including formal theological education, creating spiritually intimate fellowships, and teaching powerful personal transformation skills possible in Christ. From their home in Texas, they help others learn how to enjoy the enriching and interactive life of being a disciple of Christ.

Spirit Led Preaching

In the words of author Greg Heisler, “Spirit-Led Preaching is a call issued to preachers, pastors, and teachers of homiletics to recover the Holy Spirit for expository preaching in the same way we have recovered the biblical text. . . . My plan for doing this is to recover the doctrine of pneumatology (the study of spiritual beings/phenomena) for our theology of preaching, resulting in a renewed emphasis on the powerful combination of Word and Spirit working together as the catalyst for powerful expository preaching.” Heisler thoroughly examines how the Holy Spirit illuminates and empowers the preacher, opens the hearts of the hearers, and applies the message to their lives. Indeed, to ignore the Holy Spirit’s role in sermon preparation and delivery would be a considerable oversight.

The Spirit and the Letter

Paul's statement that 'letter kills but the spirit gives life' [2 Corinthians 3.6] has had an extraordinary impact on Christian thought through the ages. It has been read both as affirming the saving power of the new covenant in comparison to the old, and as a key to hidden, spiritual meanings in the text of scripture. It is, however, an ambiguous phrase, followed by a tangled story. This book explores the Pauline distinction both in its original context and in its aftermath in the early church, the Reformation and modern Biblical Studies. It then considers a postmodern reversal, where ideas of 'Spirit' are often seen as 'deadly' and the openness of the 'letter' or text as life-affirming, and draws conclusions for Spirit in the world.

In this refreshingly unique book, Bruce Longenecker demonstrates that reading Luke's narrative is richly enhanced through attentiveness to what is tantalizingly left out of the Lukan narrative. In Hearing the Silence, the reader is invited to delve deeply into literary and theological dimensions of the Lukan narrative through an exploration of Jesus' strangely under-narrated "escape" in Luke 4:30. The options for interpreting the mechanics of that curious event are brought into dramatic relief by Longenecker's survey of the scene's reconstruction in Jesus-novels and Jesus-films, in which a variety of strategies have been employed to iron out the scene's narrative oddity. Against their backdrop, Longenecker's own constructive proposals bring the reader into direct contact with some of the most significant features of the Lukan Gospel and worldview.

Truth is the accurate and complete representation of reality. We do not perceive reality. We only perceive a small fraction of all that is real - a representation of reality. Truth helps us avoid two great errors in life: rejecting truth as error (Type 1 error) and accepting error as truth (Type 2 error). Both types of error can result in adverse consequences to ourselves and to those around us. We can improve the quality and length of our lives by reducing how often we make these errors and how badly we misperceive the truth. We align our lives through trust. We trust that our perception is accurate enough and complete enough that we may align our lives with it and that we will not suffer adverse consequences Our only other option is to trust a guide - and then trust that their perception is accurate and complete enough. We trust our perception of truth, or trust a guide. Jesus sent the Spirit of truth to guide us into all the truth. The Spirit of Truth is unlimited in his perception of all truth: physical - temporary and spiritual - eternal. He is completely trustworthy, faithful, and reliable. He knows the will of God and knows the will of God for us specifically. He knows the path God has for us, what our next step is, and when we are to take it. We must make the choice of who we will trust to guide us into truth: ourselves or the Spirit of Truth.
