This highly anticipated third volume in Douglas Kelly's systematic theology focuses on the person and work of the Holy Spirit and on the Church. Kelly traces the work of the Spirit throughout the Old Testament and New Testament, as well as his ongoing work in the Church today. Issues involved in our coming into the immediate reality of God's dwelling within us are discussed, including tongues.
Closely intertwined with the work of the Spirit, Kelly also examines the Church - a major theme in Old and New Testament. Scripture speaks of it as an 'assembly', composed of those who are called out of the world and into it. From its presupposition in Israel to its place in the fulfillment of the Covenant. Kelly touches on all aspects of the church, including unity, governance, the sacraments, and the election of the members of the body.
This modern systematic theology written from a reformed and non-dispensational view by a worldwide respected professor is sure to delight scholars everywhere.
