"Even though we honor the Father and
believe on the Son, how little do we live in the Holy
Spirit!" Throughout the history of the Christian
tradition, the Holy Spirit has been one of the most
elusive aspects of the faith. During Kuyper's time, very
little attention had been given to the person and works of the Holy
Spirit. Kuyper recognized this void, and as the editor of the weekly
religious publication entitled The Herald, Kuyper dedicated
approximately one hundred short entries to the works of the Holy Spirit.
The Work of the Holy Spirit is a compilation of these entries
into three Volumes. Volume One addresses the influence of the Holy
Spirit in the Church as a whole, while Volumes Two and Three focus on
the works of the Holy Spirit in the individual. Kuyper's entries provide
a comprehensive study of the Holy Spirit, exploring in detail how the
Holy Spirit sanctifies both the Church and its members.
