Encountering the Holy Spirit in Every Book of the Bible
Truths on the Roles of the Holy Spirit Found in the Scriptures – Genesis through Revelation
David Diga Hernandez introduces the reader to nine symbols of the Holy Spirit in his book “Encountering the Holy Spirit in Every Book of the Bible.” Beginning in chapter one David delineates between; specific mentions, symbolic mentions, and subtle mentions of the Holy Spirit. The next 66 chapters reveal references to the Holy Spirit in of the books in the Bible.
David begins with his childhood memories to relate stories of the supernatural power of God: accounts of divine rescues, unusual occurrences, miraculous healing, and angelic encounters. These stories are interspersed throughout the text and illustrate clearly the biblical examples of miracle and mystery revealed in the Old and New Testaments and provide spontaneous glimpses into the very heart of God in the person of Jesus, and the Holy Spirit. David’s fervency and enthusiastic spirit are contagious.
As I was reading, taking copious notes and enjoying an extended period of study, I was moved to stop often, allow the Holy Spirit speak to my heart, and to respond to the awareness of His presence in an intense sense of worship.
“Encountering the Holy Spirit in Every Book of the Bible” will resonate with Bible teachers and students alike, who are looking for in-depth teaching, on revival, pneumatology, and new dimensions in the ministry of the Holy Spirit in the life of the believer.
