By Sinclair Ferguson

How do we discover the will of God for our lives? Sinclair Ferguson answers this question by showing how God's will is shaped by His ultimate purposes for us. It is made known to us through His Word.

0815368: The Holy Spirit: Contours of Christian Theology The Holy Spirit
By Sinclair Ferguson

The Holy Spirit, once forgotten, has been "rediscovered" in the twentieth century - or has He? Sinclair Ferguson believes we should rephrase this common assertion: "While his work has been recognized, the Spirit himself remains to many Christians an anonymous, faceless aspect of the divine being." In order to redress this balance, Ferguson seeks to recover the who of the Spirit as much as the what and how. Ferguson's study is rooted and driven by the scriptural story of the Spirit in creation and redemption.
