Overview

Here in Spirit: Knowing the Spirit Who Creates, Sustains, and Transforms Everything by Jonathan K. Dodson

Sizing up the Holy Spirit based on a few of his gifts is a big mistake.
What is most true and most important is this: living right here in the Spirit is the source of the most meaningful, creative, satisfying life possible.
If we relate to the Spirit primarily regarding the presence or absence of his miraculous gifts in our lives and in the world, we distort and limit our understanding of the third person of the Trinity. He should be known for much more.
Who is the Spirit? Is he a person or a spiritual force? How are we meant to relate to him? Can we pray to the Spirit? Worship the Spirit? What about his role in creation? Is he present in culture? What will he do in God’s future new creation? Will we need the Spirit after we die, are raised from the dead, and have glorified bodies? What does the Spirit love? What does he despise? Can he be grieved, thrilled, silenced? And what does being filled with the Spirit look like after all?
These are some of the questions this book will explore. Instead of relating narrowly to the Holy Spirit, this book will broaden your engagement with him by touring aspects of his vast character often unexplored.
