Dr. A.J. Gordon, the founder of Gordon College of Theology and Missions, wrote one of the classics on the subject of the work of the Holy Spirit in this age. His book blends a deeply devotional examination of the scriptural teaching with a powerful challenge for the church: restoring the Holy Spirit to His rightful place as seen in the New Testament church.
Gordon wrote, "The voice of the Lord must be heard in his church, and to the Holy Spirit alone has been committed the prerogative of communicating that voice." The author characterized the Spirit as the one through whom direction and inspiration and power would flow into the church.
The Ministry of the Spirit calls Christians to a life of complete dependence upon the Holy Spirit. As Gordon's close friend F.B. Meyer wrote in his introduction to this book, "I cannot recall a treatise on the Holy Spirit that is so lucid, so Scriptural, so deeply spiritual as this."
