This is a great book on the Holy Spirit! The Church has done a great dis-service to God by not allowing the Holy Spirit to lead us. The Church Age is also the age when the Holy Spirit is drawing the Body of Christ out from the world and preparing the Church to be one with the head (Jesus Christ). Brother Gordon explains the problems with Ecclesiastic, Presbyterian, and Congregational authority. The Holy Spirit should be leading the Church...NOT the clergy, the elders, or the congregation! This book is an in depth, plain explanation of the Ministry of the Spirit. This book is still as fresh and enlightening as if it were written this year. I encourage every Christian to read it.
