The Spirit in Redemption
Cosimo, Inc., May 1, 2006 - Religion - 416 pages
The field of consciousness is a difficult one to explore. It is also difficult to go outside one's own consciousness in the discussion of those inner states of subjective religion. Consciousness differs in individuals. Therefore there is much confusion among the people concerning the witness of the Spirit to salvation. Some speak of it as an outward voice speaking to the soul, or as an inward voice. Some Christians seem to get a much clearer witness than others, and that leads earnest souls to doubt their acceptance with God, because they have not had that vision at conversion that some Christians claim to have had. -from "The Witness of the Spirit" More devotional than academic, this collection of ponderings on the Gospel endeavor to give the Holy Spirit his rightful place in Christian theology. "The Spirit has not been honored as He should have been," Shaw writes in his Preface, and dedicates his thoughtful essays to examining the Holy Spirit's role in an individual's faith, from the Spirit's role in offering repentance and extending temptation to how a believer can better pray to the Spirit and how one can be led by the Spirit to a place of greater holiness. First published in 1910, this is a beautiful work of piety that will inspire Christians to renew their relationship with an important figure of the faith. OF INTEREST TO: Christian scholars, readers of religious philosophy, seekers after wisdom GEORGE SHAW (b. 1870) was dean of the School of Theology at Central Holiness University. He is also the author of Acquainted with Grief (1906) and The Conflict of Jesus (1916).
