The Holy Spirit is perhaps the least understood, and least acknowledged, member of the Trinity, but his work in the gospel is indispensable. In this new booklet from the Gospel Coalition, Kevin DeYoung looks to Scripture to outline fundamental doctrine about the personhood and work of the Holy Spirit.

This is a short introduction to the Holy Spirit and is very useful for anyone who is uncertain of the Spirit's role in relation to the Father and the Son.

The majority of the booklet covers the work of the Spirit which DeYoung has divided into seven categories: the Holy Spirit convicts, converts, applies, glorifies, sanctifies, equips, and promises. Filled with relevant Scripture references, these serve to provide a good outline as to the work of the Spirit.
Mark A Powell
This entry in the series of Gospel Coalition booklets highlights the person and work of the Holy Spirit. Much more than an impersonal, vague force that has little more than mystical effects on feelings, the Holy Spirit is God Himself, personally working in the lives of His people. Constrained by the format of this series, DeYoung nevertheless manages to convey several of the main ideas about the identity and activity of the Spirit within His church.
This little booklet does what it set out to do: provide a simple overview of the Holy Spirit.
Who is He? What does He do? How are we to engage with Him?
Crisply and clearly written.

Although it contains a truly horrible illustration of glaze on a Krispy Kreme donut....I recommend this as a super-quick, basic introduction.
(With a request: let's agree to let the Krispy Kreme reference die an unrecognized death. Never to be forwarded or reused. )
In a word, amazing.
