"The Holy Spirit is an excellent addition to the Guides to Theology series and will be an enormous help to students and others interested in historical theology. Shults and Hollingsworth make the doctrine of the Holy Spirit come alive through their recounting of its development and contemporary interpretations. Even more, they point readers to the person of the Holy Spirit as a living presence and not just a concept in intellectual history."
