This highly anticipated third volume in Douglas Kelly’s systematic theology focuses on the person and work of the Holy Spirit and on the Church. Kelly traces the work of the Spirit throughout the Old Testament and New Testament, as well as his ongoing work in the Church today. Issues involved in our coming into the immediate reality of God’s dwelling within us are discussed, including tongues.

Closely intertwined with the work of the Spirit, Kelly also examines the Church – a major theme in Old and New Testament. Scripture speaks of it as an ‘assembly’, composed of those who are called out of the world and into it. From its presupposition in Israel to its place in the fulfillment of the Covenant. Kelly touches on all aspects of the church, including unity, governance, the sacraments, and the election of the members of the body.

This modern systematic theology written from a reformed and non–dispensational view by a worldwide respected professor is sure to delight scholars everywhere.



Douglas F. Kelly is Professor of Theology Emeritus, Reformed Theological Seminary, Charlotte, North Carolina.


I am deeply grateful for Dr. Kelly’s faithful ministry to the church in presenting us with this confessional and practical resource to help us more fully know and love our triune God and His beloved bride. - Burk Parsons, Senior Pastor of Saint Andrew’s Chapel, Sanford, Florida, Editor of Tabletalk magazine

Here is a work that is clearly the fruit of a lifetime’s study and meditation. Dr Kelly guides us through the person and work of the Spirit, the doctrine of the church and the pattern of the Christian life, whilst somehow sacrificing neither depth nor readability. - Jonty Rhodes, Minister, Christ Church Central, Leeds, UK

He plumbs the depth of the Scriptures, dialogues with theologians throughout the ages, both east and west, and he shows the church how God in Christ through the Spirit has saved a people, the body of Christ, to live out their union with Christ. Readers will benefit from reading Dr Kelly’s labor of love—a love for our triune God and for the church. - J. V. Fesko, Harriet Barbour Professor of Systematic and Historical Theology at Reformed Theological Seminary, Jackson, Mississippi

… a thoroughly Trinitarian exploration of the Holy Spirit in the life of the church that is exegetically sharp, consistently readable, and deeply informed by the full breadth of the Christian tradition. In short, this is Reformed theology at its best. - Matthew C. Bingham, Lecturer in Systematic Theology and Church History, Oak Hill College, London
