Matt, Derek, and Alastair discuss the doctrine of the Holy Spirit.

Now that Alastair has returned from his honeymoon, Mere Fidelity jumps right back into the liturgical year with a lively discussion of Pentecost. The guys endeavor to find the Holy Spirit in Scripture and to see His gifts in the Church. They also (with apologies to the absent Andrew) touch briefly on the perennial question: What’s the deal with charismatics?

Lexham Press Book of the Month

Join the Merrie Band™

The Book of the Month is All Thy Lights Combine: Figural Reading in the Anglican Tradition. Figural interpretation has been a trademark of Anglican devotions from the beginning. Anglican readers—including Tyndale, Cranmer, Hooker, and Lewis—have been figural readers of the Bible. Edited by David Ney and Ephraim Radner, the essays in All Thy Lights Combine explore how the Anglican tradition has employed figural interpretation to theological, Christological, and pastoral ends.
