If the Bible is an outreach document written by and for missionaries, then the Holy Spirit is the instrument of that evangelical call. The Image of the Holy Spirit and the Church examines the Bible’s description of the Holy Spirit from before Pentecost and the call the church in view of current challenges.
Image of the Holy Spirit and the Church is written in a devotional format with a reflection, prayers, and questions for study.
Hear the Words; Walk the Steps; Experience the Joy!

In Image of the Holy Spirit and the Church Stephen Hiemstra teaches us about the third person of the Trinity—the Holy Spirit. The Holy Spirit is the most misunderstood person of the Godhead, but also the most essential. Jesus told us he would not leave us orphaned, and he asked his heavenly Father to send the comforter, the Holy Spirit who will teach you and remind you of all the things Jesus spoke. There can be no spirit-filled life without the Holy Spirit. We live in his dispensation until Jesus returns. God’s peace, encouragement, guidance, and authority to minister all originate from the Holy Spirit.
Stephen’s books are exceptionally written, and each nugget of wisdom is captioned with thought-provoking questions that deepen our understanding of and draw us closer to God. This book is an indispensable addition to his Image of God series that will deepen your spiritual walk with the Lord.

“A footloose Holy Spirit” and an “Avian image of God” splash vivid word pictures on a canvas depicting the role of the Holy Spirit in the Church. Stephen Hiemstra, in Image of the Holy Spirit and the Church, writes of the Holy Spirit’s essential role in the Body of Christ in a lively manner that is both scholarly and comprehensible for those who wish to understand more about the third person of the Trinity.
The Image of the Holy Spirit and the Church helps believers to dive deeper into the Holy Spirit's role in establishing the early church and churches today. Stephen Hiemstra’s book covers topics related to the Holy Spirit with a special focus on the Gospels of Luke and John, as part of Hiemstra's Image of God series.
