THE-104 Spirit-Empowered Living: Recommended Resources

a guide to resources for the Spirit Empowered Living class



This guide will provide students in the Spirit Empowered Living class with a list of recommended resources for the Holy Spirit Research Paper assignment. Resources for each section will be separated, but many of the resources will overlap.

Where can I find these books?

There are three places you can access these books in the Library.

  • Holy Spirit Research Center - A large collection of books on the Holy Spirit on the 5th floor. These books cannot be checked out , but are available for you to use 9:00 pm-4:30 pm, Monday-Friday.
  • Main Collection - We have thousands of books on the Holy Spirit in the BT section on the 4th floor. These books can be check out .
  • Holy Spirit Reserve - These are a select number of books from the HSRC kept at the Library Services Desk and can be checked out for 4 hours.

Below is a general list of books that are recommended for you. These books will be on display in the HSRC during the October 21st - November 7. Again, there are many others that are available in the BT section in both the Main collection and the Holy Spirit Research Center. You can use the second tab on this guide to search the catalog or go the Library Home Page.

Who Is the Holy Spirit?

Who is the Holy Spirit?

Here are some recommended books that look at who is the Holy Spirit. Some are more theological than others, but any of these (and many more) are good for this part of your assignment. Again, there are many others that are available in the BT section in both the Main collection and the Holy Spirit Research Center.

A Person In History

The HS in the Life of a Person in History

This part of the assignment is more complicated. There is no single book to help you if you do not already have a person in mind. Because of this, the best approach is to already have someone from history in mind and search the Library catalog to find resources on that person. If you don't know who you want to pick, below are a couple resources that could be of help to you. They will be displayed in the HSRC for you to use.

A great way to search the catalog would be to enter into the Keyword search box "biography AND spirit". A number of biographies will come up that you could choose from. Remember, there will be some people who did not write about the work of the Holy Spirit in their life. So it may take some searching of our catalog to find out.

Another great source for short biographies of significant figures in the Spirit-empowered movement is Healing and Revival website. While this would not be a good source to use for your paper citations, it has a wonderful list of individuals from which you could select someone you would like to study.
