The nature of the relationship between the Spirit of God and the Word of God has been debated among believers for centuries. Is the Spirit present wherever and whenever the Word is preached?
Ralph Cunnington explores this and in particular the narrow historical theological question of what the Protestant Reformers, in particular John Calvin, actually taught on this topic. With careful and incisive scholarship, and writing that is both clear and cogent, we travel through this question.

This is a book that all who preach and teach God's word should read. Being confident that the Spirit of God is at work when the Word of God is taught will make us work hard in our preparation and will make us more dependent on God in our prayers.

Justin Mote, Associate Minister St Andrew's Church and Director of the North West Ministry Training Course, Leyland, England

... timely and persuasive... Cunnington has made a valuable contribution to the debate. More than that, however, it is an encouraging reminder that God himself attends the Word in the presence of the Spirit, and in this confidence his ministers may speak and labor with holy boldness.

David Strain, Senior Minister, First Presbyterian Church, Jackson, Mississippi
