The role of the Holy Spirit in a Christian's life is often misunderstood. Some believers focus solely on spiritual gifts, some emphasize the practical over the spiritual, and others avoid the subject altogether. Yet in spite of the apparent confusion, the truth is surprisingly simple: God's Spirit is a vital part of our relationship with him.
The Silent Shepherd offers a balanced, scripturally sound look at the personality, works, and deity of the Holy Spirit. Drawing from over 40 years in ministry, pastor and author John MacArthur, Jr. clears away misconceptions, offers fresh insights, and shares how God's Spirit can guide, lead, and empower every believer. This revised and updated edition includes a guide for both personal and group studies and features discovery questions, suggestions for prayer, and activities, all designed to connect life-changing truths with everyday living.
I guess I was hoping for more in depth information on the Holy Spirit so this felt a little more like Christianity 101 to me. It was good and in several places really good. Some great points about the role of the Spirit in the Old Testament, the continuity of the Spirit under the Old and New Covenants, and the work of the Spirit in salvation and sanctification. I'm glad I listened to it and would definitely recommend it. I especially appreciated the "checklists" of experiences that a true Christian should be able to see in their lives that indicate they have the Spirit and therefore are saved.
