Abstract

91 James Forbes, The Holy Spirit and Preaching. (Nashville: Abingdon Press, 1989), 105 pp. ISBN 0-687-17309-4. Reviewed by Joseph Byrd The Holy Spirit and Preaching represents James Forbes' Lyman Beecher lectures given in 1986 at Yale University. Forbes, now pastor of the prestigious "Riverside Church" in New York, speaks as an ordained minister of the "United Holy Church of America" and as a homiletician having taught preaching at Union Theological Seminary in New York. The published lectures attempt to bring an ecumenical and largely non- Pentecostal audience into the discussion about the importance of the Holy Spirit's role in anointed dialogue. He contends that the anointing of the Holy Spirit makes a difference in content and concept of the Christian preaching.
