Description

There are cults for Mary, and there are Jesuits and Jesus freaks, but what about the Holy Spirit? Why has the Holy Ghost lost its central role in Christianity?

This is a hard-hitting journalistic survey of the Holy Spirit in the world, from the Jewish prophets to modern times. Rufus Goodwin, a former Vatican correspondent, investigates the rise of the Holy Ghost, the heresies, the battles, defeats, and victories, and the Holy Spirit’s exile from history.

Reviews

'An unusual book, both in conception and execution. The scope is vast ... And the parting shot is that the Holy Spirit is perhaps "the spirit of love yet to be born." I like that thought.'
-- David Lorimer, Scientific & Medical Network Review, Spring 2006
