Many Christians don’t have a clear idea of the Holy Spirit’s role in their life. Yet Scripture is full of stories that show the Spirit as a vibrant, personal being.
The Face of the Deep invites you on a quest for the Holy Spirit that journeys through our world and Bible. The adventure is infused with wonder and symbolic imagination—from the black void of Genesis 1 all the way through the explosive re-creation at the close of Revelation. You’ll encounter the love and power of the Holy Spirit revealed through the beauty of creation, art, history, and theology.
Paul J. Pastor is a writer and grassroots pastor living in the woods of Oregon’s majestic Columbia River Gorge with his wife and three children. With an M.A. in Bible and Theology from Western Seminary, Paul is a contributing editor for Christianity Today’s Leadership Journal and a regular adjunct professor at Multnomah University. His last name is either providence or coincidence.
