Despite the growth of the charismatic movement and Pentecostal churches, people still have questions—and even concerns—about the person and work of the Holy Spirit. These real questions are the focus of this book, which seeks to sequentially address six crucial questions that affect a person’s relationship to the Spirit:

  • What is blasphemy against the Holy Spirit?
  • How does a person resist him?
  • Ought we to pray to the Spirit?
  • How do we quench the Spirit?
  • How do we grieve the Spirit?
  • How does he fill us?

Each chapter is devoted to one question and challenges readers about their relationship with the Spirit and about Christian living in general. Readers are also given key elements for thinking theologically and implications for their belief and behavior. This book is reader-friendly and full of solid, reassuring answers.

I cannot imagine that there are many pastors who have not heard each of the six questions that Graham Cole raises. Here are serious, careful, practical, theologically alert answers. This book deserves the widest circulation.

D. A. Carson, research professor of New Testament, Trinity Evangelical Divinity School

Pneumatology has been sadly neglected in recent evangelical theology, and when it has been touched upon, it has trended toward either the speculative or the sensational. But here is a book on the Holy Spirit that is practical, relevant, balanced, and useful in the lives of God’s people everywhere. This book provides important grounding for a fuller theology of the Holy Spirit, and I commend it to all believers who are serious about the Christian life.

Timothy George, founding dean, Beeson Divinity School

Drawing from the well of his extensive and rigorous study of the doctrine of the Holy Spirit, Graham Cole gives refreshingly clear answers to six crucial questions that earnest Christians invariably ask. The answers are sure to grace the church, because what Christians believe about the third Person of the Trinity will determine how they live. This is an important, accessible, life-giving book.

R. Kent Hughes, senior pastor emeritus, College Church, Wheaton, Illinois

When churches wrestle with division over contradictory views related to the work of the Holy Spirit, this book will provide lucid and succinct guidance. When individuals fear they have grieved the Holy Spirit, Dr. Cole’s teaching will provide clarity and encouragement. When church leaders long for their congregations to know the filling of the Spirit of God, they will find wisdom in this book. I recommend it highly.

He Who Gives Life: The Doctrine of the Holy Spirit

Sample Pages: 1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6 | 7

Often the most misunderstood and ignored member of the Trinity, the Holy Spirit deserves our attention and understanding. In He Who Gives Life: The Doctrine of the Holy Spirit, author Graham Cole provides a comprehensive theology of the Holy Spirit. Cole illustrates the ultimate selflessness of the Holy Spirit as the member of the Trinity who always works for the glory of God the Father and God the Son and the good of the saints. A superb theology of the Holy Spirit, this book is ideal for pastors, teachers, and students of theology.

This latest addition to the Foundations of Evangelical Theology series maintains the high standard already set. Graham Cole has written the widest-ranging textbook on pneumatology that currently exists. Meticulous and sharp in handling texts, and scrupulous on matters of method, he offers us cool, clear, and sober answers to more questions about the Holy Spirit than probably any of us have hitherto thought to ask. New ground is not broken, but solid ground of a mainstream Reformed sort is set forth throughout. Well done, Dr. Cole!

J. I. Packer, board of governors’ professor of theology, Regent College

Dr. Graham Cole’s superbly written book is a thorough biblical and theological study of the doctrine of the Holy Spirit that may well become a standard work on the subject. The volume is marked by careful exegesis of the scriptural references to the Spirit, each of which is interpreted within the salvation-historical flow of God’s redemptive purposes. A convinced Trinitarian theologian, Dr. Cole listens carefully to the contributions made by earlier generations of Christian writers from a range of disciplines, including biblical studies, systematic theology, and historical theology. Authors from both the Eastern and Western traditions are drawn in as pertinent, and challenging questions for our generation are raised. Issues of doctrine, understanding, and experience are drawn together in this fine book as the author guides his readers in appropriate worship of the Triune God, Father, Son, and Spirit.
