El autor, pastor y teólogo Mike Horton les presenta a los lectores la persona olvidada del Espíritu Santo, demostrando que la obras del Espíritu de Dios son mucho más comunes de lo que pensamos. El Espíritu Santo está tan activamente involucrado en nuestras vidas que damos por sentada su presencia. Como dicen, la familiaridad lleva a la indiferencia. Al igual que damos por sentado el aire que respiramos, hacemos lo mismo con el Espíritu Santo simplemente porque dependemos constantemente de él. Como el bastón llega a ser una extensión del cuerpo del ciego, comenzamos a creer con demasiada facilidad que el Espíritu Santo es una extensión de nosotros mismos. Sin embargo, el Espíritu está en el centro de la acción en el drama divino desde Génesis 1:2 hasta Apocalipsis 22:17. La obra del Espíritu es tan esencial como la del Padre y el Hijo, pero la obra del Espíritu se atribuye siempre a la persona y a la obra de Cristo. De hecho, la eficacia de la misión del Espíritu Santo se mide por el grado en el que estamos conectados con Cristo. El Espíritu Santo es la persona de la Trinidad que trae la obra del Padre, en el Hijo, hasta su finalización. En todo lo que la Trinidad realiza, este trabajo de perfeccionamiento es característico del Espíritu. En este libro el autor, pastor y teólogo Mike Horton presenta a los lectores la persona olvidada del Espíritu Santo, demostrando que las obras del Espíritu de Dios son mucho más comunes de lo que pensamos. Horton sostiene que debemos dar un paso atrás para enfocarnos en el Espíritu, su persona y sus obras, a fin de reconocerlo como alguien distinto a Jesús o a nosotros mismos, y mucho menos como parte de su creación. A través de esta contemplación podemos obtener una nueva dependencia del Espíritu Santo en cada área de nuestras vidas.

For the Spirit, being somewhat forgotten is an occupational hazard. The Holy Spirit is so actively involved in our lives that we can take his presence for granted. As they say, familiarity breeds contempt. Just as we take breathing for granted, we can take the Holy Spirit for granted simply because we constantly depend on him. Like the cane that soon feels like an extension of the blind man’s own body, we too easily begin to think of the Holy Spirit as an extension of ourselves. Yet the Spirit is at the center of the action in the divine drama from Genesis 1:2 all the way to Revelation 22:17. The Spirit’s work is as essential as the Father’s and the Son’s, yet the Spirit’s work is always directed to the person and work of Christ. In fact, the efficacy of the Holy Spirit’s mission is measured by the extent to which we are focused on Christ. The Holy Spirit is the person of the Trinity who brings the work of the Father, in the Son, to completion. In everything that the Triune God performs, this perfecting work is characteristic of the Spirit. In Rediscovering the Holy Spirit, author, pastor, and theologian Mike Horton introduces readers to the neglected person of the Holy Spirit, showing that the work of God’s Spirit is far more ordinary and common than we realize. Horton argues that we need to take a step back every now and again to focus on the Spirit himself—his person and work—in order to recognize him as someone other than Jesus or ourselves, much less something in creation. Through this contemplation we can gain a fresh dependence on the Holy Spirit in every area of our lives.

One of the most important theologians of the twentieth century illuminates the relationship between ourselves and the teachings of Jesus in this classic text on ethics, humanism, and civic duty. What can the call to discipleship, the adherence to the word of Jesus, mean today to the businessman, the soldier, the laborer, or the aristocrat? What did Jesus mean to say to us? What is his will for us today? Drawing on the Sermon on the Mount, Dietrich Bonhoeffer answers these timeless questions by providing a seminal reading of the dichotomy between “cheap grace” and “costly grace.” “Cheap grace,” Bonhoeffer wrote, “is the grace we bestow on ourselves...grace without discipleship....Costly grace is the gospel which must be sought again and again, the girl which must be asked for, the door at which a man must know....It is costly because it costs a man his life, and it is grace because it gives a man the only true life.” The Cost of Discipleship is a compelling statement of the demands of sacrifice and ethical consistency from a man whose life and thought were exemplary articulations of a new type of leadership inspired by the Gospel, and imbued with the spirit of Christian humanism and a creative sense of civic duty.

One of the most influential works of this century, The Myth of Sisyphus and Other Essays is a crucial exposition of existentialist thought. Influenced by works such as Don Juan and the novels of Kafka, these essays begin with a meditation on suicide; the question of living or not living in a universe devoid of order or meaning. With lyric eloquence, Albert Camus brilliantly posits a way out of despair, reaffirming the value of personal existence, and the possibility of life lived with dignity and authenticity.

Renovating a house can be an exciting and rewarding experience. But the act of renovation can often leave the house in a state of disarray, causing stress and frustration. In the same way, God wants to renovate your life by altering the “old you” and creating a “new you” with an improved heart. It’s not going to be easy, and your life might experience some disarray, but renovating with God is the opportunity of a lifetime. Using the Book of Nehemiah, popular author and pastor Jacob Armstrong explores the physical and spiritual renovation experienced by the nation of Judah. Nehemiah knew that his plan for renovating the wall and gates of Jerusalem would be hard work. But equally hard would be the spiritual renovation of the Jewish people as they returned to their homeland. Thankfully, spiritual renovation is not a do-it-yourself project. We need God's great power working through us to renovate our lives by the power of the Holy Spirit. Chapters include: Never Too Late for a Renovation It Starts with Tears What to Know Before You Build When Others Don’t Like Your Plans Inviting Others to Come Home The Big Reveal Additional components for a six-week study include a comprehensive Leader Guide and a DVD featuring author and pastor Jacob Armstrong.
