The Spirit (REDUCED IN PRICE)
Brother Aleck Crawford's notes on the Holy Spirit were first published in 1974 in California. His latest book is a reorganized and vastly expanded version of those notes. Those who are familiar with Brother Crawford's earlier offering will know that his views on the important doctrine are, as he claims in the preface to his new book, "both...Biblical and traditional"; and to that extent this new contribution to Christadelphian literature ought to find a ready welcome amongst us.
The doctrine of the Holy Spirit has been much discussed in our midst in recent years, and to the knowledge of the reviewer it has been the subject of at least six separate publications, as well as of lengthy series in a number of our magazines. Brother Crawford's book has the great advantage of drawing on these documents, and the result is a very valuable work of reference. The bibliography and footnotes in themselves are good guides to both major and minor sources of the brotherhood's expressed views on the doctrine, and they show how widely the author has researched the materials of his book. The index, too, will prove extremely useful to readers wanting quick access to information about particular passages of Scripture. The author recognises that he has chosen "a difficult and complex subject" to write about but he has certainly come nearer than anyone so far to providing a complete survey of Christadelphian interpretation of the New Testament passages at the centre of the unfortunate controversies about the operation of God's Holy Spirit.
