In this debut book from author Paul Pastor, the author sets out to explore the person and work of the Holy Spirit. Paul Pastor is an editor pastor, and professor. He lives in Oregon and throughout the book it becomes obvious that he loves his home state and his life, adventures, and home provide stories that frame the backdrop of this narrative on the Holy Spirit. For a debut, Pastor has made an admirable step into a deep and complex topic. His insights are often profound and thought provoking and he is willing to wrestle with difficult theological and faith principles. Throughout the book there is a tension between finding a distinct answer within The Face of the Deep and allowing the conceptions of the Holy Spirit to remain mysterious and reverent.
