I wanted so much to understand everything in this book. There are so few books written on the Holy Spirit. But the author writes way over my head. Not really a layman's book but a deep study book that would be better purchased in book form. That way you can move at your own pace and look up all the words he uses to understand what he is talking about.

Where does Rediscovering the Holy Spirit rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?
While I wish I could hear the author read it himself, the narrator actually does a really great job and doesn't mess some some of the more technical terms, which didn't happen for Pilgrim Theology (the narrator on that one even mispronounced the name of biblical books). So this is one of the better ones I have heard where the narrator is not the author. The content, of course, is brilliant, but with audio books I am more concerned with the performance and ability to read at a natural pace with appropriate inflections and personality.
What did you like best about this story?
The Holy Spirit is so often misunderstood. By that, I mean, even among many Christians, when they talk about the Holy Spirit, they either unknowingly say heretical, non-Trinitarian things about Him, they refer to the Holy Spirit as an "it" instead of as the Third Person of the Trinity, or they sound like new age pagans who use the Holy Spirit as a means for power and personal betterment than to refer to Him as the Lord and Giver of life. Michael Horton does a brilliant job at retracing how we got here and charts the course for approaching the Holy Spirit in light of the whole of Scripture (we first meet the Holy Spirit within the first few sentences of Genesis as Creator) instead of subjective feelings and experience. It's a more technical book and will require a little bit of "elbow grease" of the mind to wade through, but the reward far outweighs the cost.
