The Holy Spirit is perhaps the least understood, and least acknowledged, member of the Trinity, but his work in the gospel is indispensable. In this new booklet from the Gospel Coalition, Kevin DeYoung looks to Scripture to outline fundamental doctrine about the personhood and work of the Holy Spirit. 

DeYoung describes the Holy Spirit as our ultimate gift. Jesus promised his followers that a “helper” would be given to them. It is through this helper that we actively experience the power and presence of God. In this booklet DeYoung notes the activity of the Holy Spirit in our lives, including his role in conviction, conversion, glorification, and the imparting of spiritual gifts. 

The Holy Spirit offers a thoughtful explanation for point 9 of the Gospel Coalition’s confessional statement. The Gospel Coalition is an evangelical renewal movement dedicated to a scripture-based reformation of ministry practices.

This is intended to be a brief introduction to the Holy Spirit. DeYoung starts with "Who is the Holy Spirit," and discusses that he is a Person, that he is God, and distinct from the Father and the Son.

The Work of the Holy Spirit takes up the rest of the booklet: convicting, converting, applying salvation, glorifying Christ, sanctifying us, equipping us, and being the seal of the promise of our future inheritance.

He briefly touches on the "controversial gifts," and doesn't take any sides (TGC doesn't take sides). Here's his conclusion:

"I believe both sides have come to see that they agree on more than they once thought. One of the encouraging signs in the evangelical world is how cessationists and continuationists have been able to partner and worship together in recent years, realizing that their commonalities in the gospel are far greater than the issues that separate them with regard to the spiritual gifts." (p. 22)

I certainly hope for more of this!

The book is loaded throughout with biblical references to look up if you want. There are glimpses of DeYoung's style and humor, but it is largely subdued and he is focused on his topic. I didn't laugh out loud, like I have in The Hole in Our Holiness, or Crazy Busy, but that wasn't the point.

This is a good, basic, brief introduction. From here, I heartily recommend J.I. Packer's Keep in Step With the Spirit, and Martyn Lloyd-Jones's The Baptism and Gifts of the Spirit.

Kevin, in his delightfully and mercifully short way, gives a great overview of the critical (and critically misunderstood) doctrine of the Holy Spirit. He does so in a way that encourages and illuminates the normal Christian life.
My only gripe was the way he washed over the cessationist/non-cessationist divide by merely pointing out some agreements between the camps. When it comes to the Holy Spirit, this is a critical divide with disagreement impacting ecclessiology, sanctification, and in many ways the very face of Christianity (just turn on any so-called Christian TV show). But being a booklet, I will not demand that sticky issue be handled in just a couple pages.
So... Good job writing a clear, short, yet very helpful booklet!

First I was surprised how short this book is. I was able to read this in less than a half hour. Dr DeYoung clearly presents the Holy Spirit in these pages in a style that is easy read and yet in line with the Bible. In fact everything he writes here comes from the Bible. Strongly recommend this for a quick, yet surprisingly in depth understanding of the Holy Spirit. Note: surprising that he can pack so much into a few pages, not that Dr DeYoung can write an in depth book.

I enjoy how organized Kevin is in his writing. Short concise and simple. I would have liked if he would have included common questions about the Holy Spirit, however it was still a great book!

A helpful, accessible introduction. Pastors could keep a couple on-hand to give to folks asking questions about the Third Person of the Trinity. DeYoung is a sound, faithful theologian and a skilled writer. Warmly recommended.

The book tells of the necessary of the Holy Spirit for every believer. It is short and scripture based, should be a must read for every believer.

Great overview. Handy quick read for those being introduced to the Spirit for the first time. Very biblical without being too focused on Reformed distinctives. Would have liked to see more exegesis of divisive texts.
“The Holy Spirit” is very basic introduction to the doctrine of the Holy Spirit that is ideal for discipleship or teaching.
