Back to Basics: The Holy Spirit and Mission

Three titles I am finding of great benefit in wresting with the work of the Holy Spirit in mission.

1. Volume 2 of Schnabel's Early Christian Mission: Paul and the Early Church. It's detailed and technical in parts. But there's gold if you're willing to dig for it.


Early Christian Mission (2 Volume Set) (Eckhard J. Schnabel)

2. Donald Bloesch's The Holy Spirit: Works & Gifts. He writes as an evangelical scholar with a warm heart and an openness to what God is saying to the Church through its various traditions—Orthodox, Catholic, Reformed, Wesleyan, Pentecostal.


The Holy Spirit: Works & Gifts (Bloesch, Donald G., Christian Foundations.) (Donald G. Bloesch)

3. Lastly, I continue to work through John Stott's excellent commentary on Acts.


The Message of Acts: The Spirit, the Church, and the World (Bible Speaks Today) (John R. W. Stott)

Now for the experience to catch up with the learning. . .
