Jesus was God in the flesh. The Holy Spirit is invisible. As someone said, “The Holy Spirit leaves no footprints in the sand.” He is mysterious—and powerful. The Holy Spirit was present at the Creation. The Holy Spirit is active in our salvation. The Holy Spirit remains with us as a teacher. The Holy Spirit is active in our prayers. The Holy Spirit is the comforter. The Holy Spirit is the powerful agent accompanying our ministry. Yet for some, the Holy Spirit is just a name with little meaning. Drawing on the witness of scripture and the testimony of the church’s greatest thinkers, R.C. Sproul looks at God the Holy Spirit with clarity and precision to bring enrichment, enlightenment, and greater love for the third person of the Trinity.
