The nature of the relationship between the Spirit of God and the Word of God has been debated among believers for centuries. Is the Spirit present wherever and whenever the Word is preached?
Ralph Cunnington explores this and in particular the narrow historical theological question of what the Protestant Reformers, in particular John Calvin, actually taught on this topic. With careful and incisive scholarship, and writing that is both clear and cogent, we travel through this question.
This is a fascinating historical look at a subject of vital importance for preachers. It stimulated me to think, then think again, about the relationship of word and Spirit.
Lee Gatiss, Director of Church Society and Editor of the NIV Proclamation Bible
… this short, readable and relevant book will be a great help to preachers, equipping them to navigate these contemporary controversies and providing them with a proper theological understanding of their vital work.
John Stevens, National Director, Fellowship of Independent Evangelical Churches, Market Harborough, England
… the first book–length treatment of an important issue that has been simmering just under the surface British Evangelicalism for a number of years… I hope this will not lead to a full–blown controversy, but to a closer examination of the Scriptures.
Sinclair B. Ferguson, Associate Preacher, St Peter’s Free Church, Dundee
… stimulating, challenging and timely. It is of great importance that our doctrine of preaching is robust and biblical and I found this volume’s careful assessment of Calvin a great help in achieving these aims.
Adrian Reynolds, The Proclamation Trust & Associate Minister, East London Tabernacle Baptist Church
