THE SPIRIT WITHIN YOU: The Church's Neglected Possession
J.I. Packer and A.M. Stibbs

"This is vintage Packer and as an added bonus he has teamed up with another superb author, Alan Stibbs, on a subject that is still of vital concern: the doctrine of the Holy Spirit. Here we find a balanced and biblical discussion of what is the greatest gift God has given us, namely the indwelling Spirit, whose inhabitation was purchased through the Lord Jesus' bitter death and glorious resurrection. Time has only increased the value of this small classic, thankfully now coming back in print." - Michael A G Haykin, The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary, Louisville, KY

"The authors of this book approach their theme with the conviction that 'the gift of the Spirit to indwell God's people, corporately and individually, is the supreme and crowning blessing held forth by the Gospel.' Yet as they frankly acknowledge, the doctrine of the Spirit is tragically neglected by the Church in our day, while in some quarters strange and distorted views about the Spirit's operations are being propagated and are gaining ground.

In face of this situation they set out to examine afresh what the Bible has to say about this vitally important subject. But what they offer here is no mere academic study. They seek to relate the biblical teaching to the contemporary situation and to clarify certain issues - more especially by the Penecostal movement." - from the Introduction

THE PERSON AND WORK OF THE HOLY SPIRIT
Benjamin B. Warfield with Introduction by Sinclair B. Ferguson

This precious book contains all the sermons, articles and book reviews on this vital subject by one of the most brilliant theologians America has ever produced. Sinclair Ferguson, author and pastor, said, "I commend these pages, as one who has continually been helped by their contents. It is a treasure to be enjoyed again and again."

"These sermons, articles, and book reviews, collected from Warfield's writings, show the genuine stamp of Reformed experiential piety that rested on the great 19th-century Princeton theologians. The sermons on the leading and sealing of the Spirit are themselves worth the price of the book. Would you like guidance in learning how to live more closely to Christ, how to walk more by faith through the Spirit, and how to wrestle at the throne of grace? Read this book prayerfully, both for clarity of mind and warmth of soul with regard to the person and ministry of the blessed Spirit. Let Warfield be your spiritual mentor in the great things of God." - Joel Beeke

THE OFFICE AND WORK OF THE HOLY SPIRIT
James Buchanan

James Buchanan was born in 1804. He held several pastorates before becoming Professor Apologetics and later of Systematic Theology at the Free Church College in Edinburgh. He attained great fame as a preacher, his manner in the pulpit being marked by sustained clarity of thought and eloquent evangelical fervour. The most experimental of Buchanan's theological works is the one from which this article is taken, The Office and Work of the Holy Spirit, which was first published in 1843 and then republished by the Banner of Truth Trust in 1966.

"James Buchanan belonged to the bright galaxy of theologians who graced the early days of the Free Church of Scotland. His brilliant and uniquely conceived treatment of the Holy Spirit expounds his Ministry first biblically and theologically, then in a series of biographical studies, and finally systematically in the life of the Christian. Buchanan superbly combines the reliable with the readable, the doctrinal with the practical, the theological with the devotional. 'The Office and Work of the Holy Spirit' is a classic work on the Holy Spirit and a master class in theology." - Sinclair Ferguson

"James Buchanan was a pastor-theologian whose preaching and writing were precious gifts of Christ to the church. His classic book on the Holy Spirit is especially full in its treatment of the conversion of sinners, considered both in its doctrinal aspects and in several cases of conversion reported in the Scriptures. His writing exemplifies the biblical, doctrinal, experiential, and practical quality of the Reformed tradition. Highly recommended." --Dr. Joel R. Beeke, President, Puritan Reformed Theological Seminary, Grand Rapids, Michigan

"We find in Dr. James Buchanan's 'The Office and Work of the Holy Spirit,' and in Dr. George Smeaton's 'The Doctrine of the Holy Spirit,' two treatises covering the whole ground; the one in a more practical, the other in a more didactic spirit; and both in a manner worthy of the best traditions of our Puritan fathers." - B.B. Warfield

"When theological ignorance seems to be at an all time low in the pulpits of American churches comes great help from 19th century Scotland. -Who is the Holy Spirit? -What is He doing and what has He done? -What is the new birth, conversion, illumination? -Where can I find illustrations in Scripture of these most important truths? Thank you, SOLID GROUND, for bringing back one of the great practical theology works of the past!

Nineteenth century Scotland was blessed with many theological "oaks". James Buchanan was one of them and this work is one of his best. Pastors, take your elders and deacons and then the men of the church through this book and bless them all and strengthen your church!" - Steve Martin, Retired confessional Baptist pastor of 31 years, State Coordinator of the Georgia Association of Confessional Baptist Churches

Buchanan concludes this masterpiece with these words: "And now on a calm and comprehensive review of all that has been said concerning the Work of the Holy Spirit, both in the Conversion of Sinners, and in the Edification of His People, how appropriate to the case of every reader, whatever may be his character, are the prayers of David;--'Create in me a clean heart, O God; and renew a right spirit within me. Cast me not away from thy presence; and take not thy Holy Spirit from me. Restore unto me the joy of thy salvation; and uphold me by thy free Spirit.' -- 'Teach me to do thy will; for thou art my God: thy Spirit is good; lead me into the land of uprightness."
