The world is a stage. Yet the principal players are not men and women... The three principal players are the members of the Trinity: God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit. Alive in the Spirit answers questions that many Christians struggle with, including "who is the Holy Spirit, and what does He do?" Gene Jeffries illuminates the role of the Holy Spirit in the Christian life and encourages readers to understand His influence in their lives. Jeffries also explores the role of the Holy Spirit in biblical topics such as speaking in tongues, gifts of the spirit, love, conversion, and confessing sin.
