The Two Advocates by Timothy Keller

Volume seven of Keller's e-book series discusses the role of The Holy Spirit.

I connected completely to this short book. Unlike The First Christian this endeavor kept me reading until I finished it. It's not long but there was so much good stuff inside.

When Jesus talks about God sending another counselor, to whom is he speaking of? And if this counselor is "another" one, who was the first? These are the questions that kept me flipping through.

Keller talks about Jesus and The Holy Spirit as our defense attorney team. I wanted to keep reading about how Jesus stands in our place, making the case for us as to why Christians should be acquitted. Then when he highlighted the Holy Spirit as reminding us and teaching us like a defense attorney would at the table - I wanted to keep reading his thoughts on this topic but it actually felt complete as short as it was.

I see that a complete book is coming out that will probably include these short books but I would love to see an expansion of these thoughts.

Great stuff Pastor Keller.
