The Holy Spirit in the World Today

By Jane Williams

Can encounter with the Holy Spirit help us live more wisely?

How does the Holy Spirit relate to global politics or cultural change?

How does the Holy Spirit renew the church?

Some of the most eminent theological thinkers of our time address these and other questions about the Holy Spirit’s work in the world today in this ground breaking book.

In recent decades, churches across the world have been rediscovering the dynamic power and deep wisdom of the Holy Spirit. These twelve essays are the fruit of a conference in London in 2021 that brought together theologians and church leaders in a unique atmosphere of study, worship and prayer.
