Holy Spirit Bibliography

While we are on the subject of the Holy Spirit ... a complete and utter favourite of mine by the way. My best friend and soulmate Scott became a Christian at the Brighton Leaders Conference 2005 and got baptised in the Spirit that night - my evangelising to him was somewhat avant garde - he knew about the Holy Spirit and spiritual gifts and revival before he knew about Jesus Christ and His death and resurrection .... oops.

I've compiled a bibliography of some of my favourite books or ones that I have most referred to on every subject possible about the Holy Spirit. Worth making note of for further study!
