“Who the Holy Spirit is determines what the Holy Spirit does."
Who is the Holy Spirit? aims to help people see who the Holy Spirit is through Scripture’s description of him, offering biblical insights into the identity of the third person of the Trinity. With consideration for the Spirit’s identity derived from both Old and New Testament accounts, author Malcolm B. Yarnell focuses on identifying characteristics of the person of the Holy Spirit himself, rather than discussing the work of the Spirit solely in the context of salvation and sanctification, or external signs and wonders.
Malcolm Yarnell is perhaps the greatest living Baptist theologian, and Who is the Holy Spirit? is among the best of his writings. In this substantive and accessible book, we are given a biblically faithful portrayal of the Holy Spirit are reminded of the Spirit's intimate involvement in our lives. Highly recommended for college and seminary students, pastors, and professors."
Bruce Ashford, provost and dean of faculty, Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary
"Beautifully written and thoughtfully presented, Malcolm Yarnell has given us a readable and accesible introduction to the theology of the Holy Spirit. Orthodox and Evangelical in its convictions, Who is the Holy Spirit? provides us with a clear and theologically-shaped interpretation of both Old and New Testament pictures of the third person of the Holy Trinity. Pastoral in its tone with an application focus throughout, this small volume exceeds expectations with its insightful depth, careful biblical exegesis, and its engaging use of the best of Christian tradition. It is a genuine joy to recommend this fine volume to new believers, church leaders, students, and pastors alike."

"I have been learning pneumatology from Malcolm Yarnell since the days I was his PhD student. His method as a systematic theologian who prioritizes biblical exegesis with pastoral motivation makes his books vital and valuable. This book is no exception. I am grateful to see its publication so many more can have the blessings and benefits of learning from Malcolm Yarnell that I and many students have had."
