OVERVIEW

The Holy Trinity is the foundation of Christian belief, but the Holy Spirit is the One piece of the Trinity that is often viewed as a mystery. The Holy Spirit worked wonders in the Bible and continues to live in the hearts of Christians today. Paul Pastor delves into the essence of the Holy Spirit, looking at the “seven stars” in the Old Testament and the “seven lampstands” in the New. Through this journey, the reader is invited to look a little closer at the life of Christ, at themselves as believers, and at the church as the body of Christ today. The Spirit is living and breathing, wanting desperately for Christians to pause and witness Him.

In his forward, Pastor says to read this book slowly, digesting each part fully before moving to the next. Heed this advice. This book allows for deep reflection on one’s spiritual life and will open a person’s eyes to the how the Spirit works in the every day. Pastor uses Bible stories, past writings, and personal examples to help in clearly revealing the Spirit.
