In this delightful treatise, Robert Philip performs a task rarely undertaken: while many authors rejoice in the love of the Father and of Christ toward the believer, the actual love of the Spirit toward the believer is seldom developed. Philip addresses this with biblical, heartwarming spirituality. He compares the love of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Sprit in salvation in order to demonstrate that their equality in love is as sure as their being united as one God. He then proceeds to investigate the display of love in the Spirit’s activity in the hearts of Christians, from conversion and adoption to being an earnest of heaven.
