The purpose of this book is to stimulate thought and promote a deeper study of the revealed will of God as it relates to the person and work of the Holy Spirit in his relationship to the believer, to the Word, and to God. Since the author believes that God has spoken, and the revelation of what He has said is contained in the Bible, he maintains that experiences must be judged in the light of the Scripture, and not the reverse. Consequently, it is to Scripture that he turns to answer such questions as: Is the Holy Spirit a who or what? What are the implications of the Holy Spirit as Comforter? What is the sin against the Holy Spirit? How should the Spirit's presence affect daily living? If this volume leads you into a life of sharing with the Father and all the other members of His family—your brothers and sisters; if it brings freedom from fear of the present; and if it strengthens your faith, it will have achieved its goal and God will be praised.

About the Author
William Carl Ketcherside (May 10, 1908 – May 25, 1989) is best known for his efforts to unite Christians who are divided because of their view that spiritual fellowship is synonymous with endorsement of specific doctrinal interpretations. He was convinced that true followers of Jesus Christ are constitutionally one; not called to unity so much as called to maintain the unity they already have due to the common life they share with the Holy Spirit and, thus, with each other. Those who have the same spiritual father are necessarily brothers and sisters of one another, whether they know it or not. It is because of much confusion about the nature and work of the Holy Spirit that Ketcherside considered a clear understanding in this regard essential to understanding the nature of unity and spiritual fellowship among Christians. At heart Ketcherside was an ecumenist because he believed unity to be the key to converting the world to Christ. Ketcherside was a prolific writer and a gifted speaker. He spent the better part of his life residing in St. Louis, Missouri, from where he edited a monthly journal, Mission Messenger, from 1940 through the end of 1975. He traveled extensively, speaking often on university campuses across the U.S. and at numerous conferences in the U.S., Puerto Rico, Mexico, and Brazil. His autobiography is titled Pilgrimage of Joy.
