It is the Holy Spirit who leads us to true repentance and confession... -from "Preparing His House" This joyful work of devotion and "experiential" religion is part testimony, part prayer book. The author, a preacher who was instrumental in the development of the theology of the Salvation Army, the Protestant evangelical organization, relates stories of the power of the Holy Spirit to transform lives and save souls, and offers meditations, excerpts from Scripture, on His authority. First published in 1906, this is an invaluable volume for anyone seeking to understand the history and ideology of this important Christian sect.
