Editorial Reviews

From the Back Cover

Few books have been more warmly received by Bible teachers and students. He That is Spiritual defines true Christian living and unfolds the biblical teaching concerning spirituality -- what it is, and how it is secured. Nothing could be more important to Christians than the theme of this book. Its sound teaching corrects many false impressions and presents a scriptural pattern for the full life in Christ.

About the Author

As the founder and first president of the Dallas Theological Seminary, the late Dr. Chafer served as Professor of Systematic Theology since its beginning in 1924, and was editor of Bibliotheca Sacra from 1940 to the time of his death in 1952.

SOOOOOOO clear, simple, yet deep and very well written.

What I especially like about this book is that it focuses on the power of the Holy Spirit in the believer's life.
BluePilgrim
Chafer's work is liberating in a time saturated with so much biblical ignorance and legalism.

Format: Paperback
Dr. Chafer in this brief book exposes the reality of being spiritual. From solid Biblical exposition he affirms that being spiritual or in fellowship with the Lord is an absolute state. While Dr. Chafer's archaic prose is sometimes difficult to navigate through, the book is a diamond in a dung heap. It is one of the best books available for sound spiritual growth and well worth overcoming Dr. Chafer's old prose.

Format: Paperback
This book is essentially a work that speaks of liberation and freedom in the Christian Life. It is, without a doubt, one of the best works written on the Christian Life and the provisions given to live it out confidently, with rest and peace, solely in faith and hope in the Spirit who has been given so abundantly to every believer at the moment of conversion.

As a Biblicist, Chafer goes to great lengths to exegete the three essential passages that focus in on how to we should live the Christian Life above reproach. These are Eph. 4:30, 2 Thess. 5:19, and Gal. 5:16. Chafer views the Spirit as being given fully and completely at the moment of faith. All that is needed for life and godliness has already been supplied to every believer. The believer does not need to seek other blessings and works of special graces to live a victorious Christian Life. The key to living the life victoriously is to be daily yielded to the Spirit, and through this, the believer is 'Filled' (controlled) by the Spirit and allows the Spirit (already fully given) to manifest His fruit and the immanence of Christ to others. The 'Filling of the Spirit' is not quantitative by any means; Chafer explains that it is a matter of control, which Eph. 5:18 strongly suggests when it contrasts being 'Filled with the Spirit' by not being drunk, for this is dissipation.

Though Chafer says a few things that resemble Keswickian teaching from time to time, such as needing an event of 'complete surrender' to begin the process of a true willingness for progressive sanctification (pp. 91-94, etc.), Chafer does not allow these views to override his essential emphases.

Chafer is an excellent theologian, right on target, and well worth reading. However, his writing style is difficult, and to read his books is work. This is not an easy read, but it is a good read.

Dr. Chafer presents a brief but practical work on the ministry of the Holy Spirit in the daily life of the Believer. It is worth reading, and rereading, to glean all that is available to the hungry heart! The Lord has used the truths unfolded in this book to really empower my own walk in the Spirit.

Really helps me understand the growth process in my spiritual life. How my flesh can get in the way of what God may want to do in my life. It is the holy spirit working thru me that produces the good fruit that has eternal value. In my flesh there is no good thing. How God accomplishes this transformation in my life is the journey. Preparing me for eternity.

Format: Paperback
I had the great benefit of first reading Chafer's HE THAT IS SPIRITUAL around 1973, soon after I began counseling with the distinguished Christian psychologist Howard Blandau. I counseled with Mr. Blandau from 1971 through 1996, and he introduced me to the Spirit-filled life. I know he read and re-read Chafer's book as I have. This excellent book much augmented the life-changing value of Mr. Blandau's counseling. I am so fortunate that the work of Blandau and Chafer complemented each other's perfectly; I've been doubly blessed as a result. Let me note that T. George Homsher, who also was counseled by and later associated with Mr. Blandau in private practice, has recently authored two fine books perpetuating Mr. Blandau's counseling approach. Both of Mr. Homsher's books are available from amazon, and I heartily recommend them. His second book OLD SELF/NEW SELF speaks most directly to the Spirit-filled life. It should be read together with Chafer's HE THAT IS SPIRITUAL by those Christians desiring to gain the fullest understanding of the power and working of the Holy Spirit, offered to all who trust in Jesus Christ as their personal Savior. Others have written on the Holy Spirit and the Spirit-filled life, but none so clearly and helpfully as Lewis Sperry Chafer in my opinion.
