We live in a time of great, even extraordinary interest in the person and work of the Holy Spirit. In some measure, this is because we live after the outbreak, in Topeka and in Los Angeles, of neo-Pentecostalism just after the turn of the 20th century. Since that time, scholars have spoken of a “third wave” of global Pentecostalism, because it is one of the most influential religious movements across the globe. Pentecostalism has influenced the way many evangelicals think and speak today about the person and work of the Holy Spirit. We also live in a time when people have been raising questions about the personality of the Spirit by substituting the neuter pronoun “it” for the Biblical language about the Spirit. Some speak of the Spirit as the “energy” of God. Mike Horton is J. Gresham Machen Professor of Systematic Theology and Apologetics and Westminster Seminary California. He is author of a new book on the person and work of the Spirit, Rediscovering the Holy Spirit and we spent some time talking about it.
