Living with the Living God brings together two of the classic works on the person and work of the Holy Spirit from two of the most renowned theologians - George Smeaton and John Owen.
Part one looks at the Biblical teaching concerning the Holy Spirit, as Smeaton leads us on a journey of exploration through Scriptures teachings on the Holy Spirit.
Part two sees John Owen deal with the relationship between the believer and the Holy Spirit in our daily experience.
Living with the Living God provides an accessible and practical opportunity for the contemporary reader in understanding the work of the Holy Spirit.
George Smeaton (1814?89) Scottish theologian, was among the numerous ministers who emerged in 1843 during the Disruption to form the Free Church of Scotland.
John Owen (1616-1683) Amongst the best know of the Puritans, he was a profound and thought provoking pastor-theologian. His writings continue to be widely read and greatly appreciated to this day.
George Smeaton and John Owen have written with characteristic depth on the person and work of the Holy Spirit. Their work, however, can feel somewhat daunting to the contemporary reader and so the treasure remains unearthed. This book resolves that difficulty. A really helpful doorway into the doctrine; it is lucid, accessible and surprisingly thorough for such a short volume. Readers will find it clarifies and edifies in equal measure.
