The Mission of the Holy Spirit: Five Addresses
The Mission of the Holy Spirit Five Addresses Author:H. A. Ironside Ironside’s five addresses on the work of the Holy Spirit are rooted in Christ’s promise that he would send a Comforter to accomplish Christ’s work throughout the world and into the present. Ironside distinguishes the Spirit’s work from emotion or ecstasy—the presence of the Spirit does not constitute merely a subjective encounter, but ... more »rather an active regeneration and a continuation of Christ’s work into the lives of present believers. As in all of Ironside’s sermons, these addresses on the Holy Spirit blur the line between sermonizing and storytelling, making them an accessible introduction to the work of the Holy Spirit.
H. A. Ironside, one of the twentieth century’s greatest preachers, was born in Toronto, Canada on October 14, 1876. Though his education stopped with grammar school, his fondness for reading and a retentive memory put his learning to use. His scholarship was recognized in academic circles when he received honorary degrees from Wheaton College and Bob Jones University and was invited as frequent lecturer at Dallas Theological Seminary. Dr. Ironside was appointed to the boards of numerous Bible institutes, seminaries, and Christian organizations. He also served as director of the Africa Inland Mission. Ironside preached widely throughout the United States and abroad. He served as pastor of Moody Memorial Church from 1930 to 1948, and during his lifetime, he preached more than 7,000 sermons to over 1.25 million listeners.« less
