Christianity is unique in making this offer. No other religion has any equivalent for it. The Holy Spirit is not obtained from the deductions of logic, the conclusions of philosophy nor from the investigations of science. All these are as silent as the grave regarding his presence and potency.
It is solely and distinctly a matter of divine revelation. It is not my purpose, therefore, to view this subject in the light of philosophic induction, logical deduction nor scientific investigation, but solely in the light of God's revelation. I shall gather the teaching of God's word around several important phases of the nature, mission and work of the Spirit.

About the Author
So many volumes on this theme will "word you to death" (as one has said), but Sweeny's will spare you of any boredom and you should be able to read through it in a day or two.
The chapter on the "The Holy Spirit and the Apostles" is exceptional, and its dealing with John 14, 15 and 16 is worth the price of the book. I believe that if only one book on the subject of the Holy Spirit is on your shelf, this should be the one. It has proven to be more valuable to me in my study of this matter than any other, save the Bible itself.
The doctrine of direct operation of the Holy Spirit is, I am convinced, the foundation stone of most false doctrines in the world today. For anyone who has been faced with the statement, "I would take what the Spirit has laid on my heart over a stack of Bibles any day of the week!" (or some like-minded phrase), this book will be a treasured tool in explaining to people that the only way to Jesus Christ is through His word!
