Twelve scholars from the biblical, historical, theological, and philosophical disciplines engage in a conversation on the transforming work of the Holy Spirit in the Christian life. The essays are held together by an enduring focus and concern to explore the relationship between the work of the Holy Spirit and Christian formation, discipleship, personal and social transformation. The book points toward the integration of theory and practice, theology and spirituality, and the mutual interest in fostering dialogue across disciplines and ecclesial traditions.

The death and resurrection of Jesus Christ constitute the pivotal point of the apostle Paul's thought world. Thanks to this key salvific event those united with Christ through faith are endowed with life that reaches beyond confines of mortality. Still the faithful continue to live in the world where they experience the tension between being already saved but not yet fully redeemed, living in the body but following the Spirit, and dying while being called to immortality. This tension between the already and not yet of Christian life constitutes the backdrop of this research.

"The difference between a religion of mere letter and form and one of life and power lies in knowing the Holy Spirit." It was Dr. R. A. Torrey who pointed that out and showed Christians that the Holy Spirit is a Person to be worshiped, Someone who would take hold of you and use you as He transformed you from day to day. Can you, or can any Christian, go far in the Christian life without giving time and thought to the third Person of the Godhead? Obviously not, for the Holy Spirit takes the things of Christ and shows them to us, who makes the practical application of Bible knowledge in the outworking of Christian living. He alone can make Christian theory into life and deeds. Throughout this book, Dr. Pache will direct us into thinking again about who the Holy Spirit is, what He did before Pentecost, and what He has been doing since then in the lives of men. What place does the Holy Spirit have in the service of the Christian worker, and what will be His ministry in the future? The Person and Work of the Holy Spirit answers these questions and others concerning conviction, baptism, filling, indwelling, and gifts of the Spirit.

Christianity does not deny the Holy Spirit's existence and most Christians would confess they believe in the Spirit, at least with their head and creed. But few "experience" him in their daily walk or have a biblical understanding of who he is, why he came and what his role is in the Christian life. The Holy Spirit is a living presence""a person""and as such must be experienced, not neglected, within the church and the individual believer. The crucial role of the Spirit in Paul's life, thinking and theology was always that of the personal presence of God. As a Christian, a believing follower of Christ, the Spirit is the empowering presence experienced in our lives as we await the perfect ending of the Kingdom of God.
