Smouldering Fire: The Work of the Holy Spirit - Martin Israel

Mowbray, 1978, Paperback ..
Condition: Very Good.

From the cover: “The theme of Smouldering Fire is the problem of good and evil and their reconciliation in Christ. Dr Israel says, ‘At first I had the Holy Spirit in mind as the central focus for my meditation, and indeed the Spirit plays a primary role in the book as the agent of human advance to the knowledge of God. Since so many books on the Holy Spirit had appeared in recent years, most of them directly related to the Charismatic Renewal within the Church, I intended concentrating more on the psychological and psychical aspects of spiritual life, and indeed, these matters occupy a considerable part of the text. But as the work proceeded, it was shown to me that something more was required; the charting of the work of the Spirit in man from the birth of spiritual awareness to the ultimate confrontation with evil that brings with it personal death and the rebirth of a new person. ’
