Keep in Step With the Spirit (Packer Essentials Series)

J. I. Packer

Hardback 2021-07-27

"If we live by the Spirit, let us also keep in step with the Spirit." ―Galatians 5:25

Many Christians throughout the years have struggled to understand the person and work of the Holy Spirit. Seeing the potential for learning ― as well as for confusion ― theologian J. I. Packer wrote this comprehensive guide celebrating an often-misunderstood person of the Trinity. In Keep in Step with the Spirit, he explains how the Holy Spirit acted powerfully throughout creation and history, and continues to move in the lives of believers today, influencing our sanctification, spiritual gifts, and witness. Packer shares examples of the Spirit in the Old and New Testaments, and thoughtfully analyzes the strengths and weaknesses of charismatic theology.

This updated, expanded edition includes an additional essay from Packer on Paul's words in Romans, which emphasize the certainty of hope imparted to believers through the Holy Spirit.

Publisher Description

:J. I. Packer's Classic Work on the Holy Spirit

The Holy Spirit is far from a one-dimensional figure. It is active in many ways throughout the Bible-molding creation, directing history, revealing God's truth and will, and teaching God's people. But the foremost-and often neglected-role of the Spirit is to make Christ known to God's people.

Keep in Step with the Spirit is a helpful guide to the Holy Spirit that is both conversational in tone and comprehensive in scope, revealing who the Spirit is and how it is active in the lives of believers. In this book, J. I. Packer focuses on how the Spirit is presented in the Old and New Testaments before offering a comprehensive and contemporary analysis of the charismatic movement. Packer presents readers with an alternative position to the Charismatic movement that highlights the direct activity of the Holy Spirit yet tests all things by God's word.
