Like the cane that soon feels like an extension of the blind man’s own body, we too easily begin to think of the Holy Spirit as an extension of ourselves.
Yet the Spirit is at the center of the action in the divine drama from Genesis 1:2 all the way to Revelation 22:17. The Spirit’s work is as essential as the Father’s and the Son’s, yet the Spirit’s work is always directed to the person and work of Christ. In fact, the efficacy of the Holy Spirit’s mission is measured by the extent to which we are focused on Christ. The Holy Spirit is the person of the Trinity who brings the work of the Father, in the Son, to completion. In everything that the Triune God performs, this perfecting work is characteristic of the Spirit.

A “how-to” manual for doing theology, and a handbook of etiquette for doctrinal discussions with other believers.
Around a table sit men and women with distinct roles: The Interpreter, the Theologian, the Virtuous, the Philosopher, the Scientist, the Artist, the Minister, and the Historian. Each is ready to engage in a passionate discussion centered on God, his works, and his ways. Regardless of which role you play at the same table, you’re invited. You simply need to pull up a chair and join the conversation. But how? What do you say when you take your seat? Where do you start? What are the “rules” of the dialogue?
Many Christians wonder what the Christian life is all about. They hear about “grace” but struggle to rightly understand it, much less live it.

The God Who Gives provides a compelling vision of Christian faith and life, helping readers discover the uniqueness of the gospel—that God’s kingdom comes not by taking, but by giving—God gives Himself! We are invited into the fullness of life that can only come through the gift of God’s divine generosity.
