Overview

Filling The Temple is a ring full of keys....
The study of the Holy Spirit is broad in scope, deep in meaning, and plural in dimension. Filling The Temple provides keys that unlock the meanings that are foundational to a fulfilling study. Students of Scripture have long recognized the value of establishing meanings that are center-core to build a framework for the more obscure and elusive meanings. Here is a ring of keys for unlocking the center-most doctrines regarding the Third Person of the Trinity.
The Holy Spirit's role in Christian spirituality cannot be grasped without understanding what happened on Pentecost-"the baptism in the Holy Spirit." The meaning set forth here, from a close reading of the Scriptures, is largely missed in popular understanding. Likewise, the Scriptures inextricably link the reception of the Spirit to water-baptism. The connections are set forth here in utter plainness. Filling The Temple generates such helpful access to the theology of the Spirit, that readers will surprise themselves to have overlooked insights so clearly visible in the Bible.
There is a special application here for churches of Christ, heirs of the American Restoration Movement. Some in our fellowship do not believe in an actual indwelling of the Spirit, suggesting instead that the Spirit indwells us "only through the Word?" Those from other circles will benefit from looking-in on this conflict within our Restorationist fellowship. The book ends with hope that the Spirit will break down walls of denominational division and accomplish the Restoration of unity that, so far, we have failed to achieve.
Filling The Temple provides the keys to finding a place for the Holy Spirit.

Filling the Temple is a wonderful book that provides an in-depth study of the importance of the Holy Spirit in the life of the modern Christian. This book seeks to clarify and expand upon the often misunderstood and under-studied subject of the indwelling if the Holy Spirit which occurs at baptism. In this book Mr. Krivak presents an examination of the theology and scriptural references surrounding the subject of baptism in the Holy Spirit in a way that is both thorough and accessible to Christan readers of any level of study.
