From the preface: “FIFTEEN years ago, in the preface to the second edition of my book on “The Christian Doctrine of Man”, I expressed the hope of writing a similar book on the doctrine of the Holy Spirit. Since then, the subject has been constantly in my mind. In 1916 I conducted a fruitful “Seminar” in it, for a group of old pupils and friends. In the winter of 1916-171 gave courses of lectures to the Free Church ministers of Leeds and Birmingham, Sheffield and Liverpool, on “Christian Experience and the Holy Spirit”. These lectures formed the first draft of the present volume, though it has been entirely rewritten within the last three years. Much of it has been debated in conferences with Anglican or Free Church ministers. Chapter I was discussed in 1923 by the London Society for the Study of Religion, Chapter XI in 1927 by the Oxford Society of Historical Theology. These facts are named to show that, whatever the shortcomings of the book, its substance has been frequently tested amongst those who are intimately concerned with the subject, and I need not say that I have learnt much from my many fellow-students.”
