Jack Hyles 35 chapter work on the Holy Spirit. He looks at the Spirit and various subjects, and from various views. I would not consider this a deep theological work on the various parts of the doctrine of the Holy Spirit, but rather a practical Holy Spirit as He intersects our lives kind of work.

Foreword of Meet the Holy Spirit

One of the most grievous things that one can endure is to be ignored. How grieved then, must the Holy Spirit be, for to be ignored has been His lot for these many centuries! He, Who is the Indweller of the believer, the Anointer of the anointed, the Power of the pulpit and the Fullness of power for the believer, continues to go about His work with little or no acknowledgment or attention. Few sermons are preached about Him, fewer books are written of Him; yet He quietly continues to offer us leadership, comfort, wisdom, strength, teaching and power.

He must be a wonderful Person to go about His work among us with little or no recognition. Each of us enjoys introducing to our friends someone whom we have met and whose presence has enriched our lives. Years ago I met the Holy Spirit. How rich has been my life since that day! I want you to know Him too. May I introduce the Holy Spirit to you.

Jack Hyles Biography

Jack Hyles
Jack Hyles
Jack Frasure Hyles (September 25, 1926 – February 6, 2001) was a leading figure in the Independent Baptist movement, having pastored the First Baptist Church of Hammond in Hammond, Indiana, from August 1959 until his death. He was well known for being an innovator of the church bus ministry that brought thousands of people each week from surrounding towns to Hammond for services.[1] Hyles built First Baptist up from fewer than a thousand members to a membership of 100,000. In 1993 and again in 1994, it was reported that 20,000 people attended First Baptist every Sunday, making it the most attended Baptist church in the United States.[2][3][4] In 2001, at the time of Hyles's death, 20,000 people were attending church services and Sunday school each week.[1] He was the senior pastor during several sexual abuse scandals[5], and his doctrinal positions often put him at odds with other Christians — even with other fundamentalist Baptists.

Ministry One of the most notable aspects of Hyles' work is his church bus ministry that he helped innovate. As early as 1975, Time magazine described the phenomenon in an article titled, "Superchurch." The Time article notes that First Baptist Church of Hammond Sunday School, which regularly ran almost 14,000 people, pushed the church to a record attendance of 30,560 on March 16, 1975, thanks to a boisterous contest between two bus route teams.[11] In that year, the First Baptist bus route ministry consisted of 1,000 workers using 230 buses to ferry as many as 10,000 people every Sunday.[11] In 2001, a fleet of over 200 buses was regularly ferrying 7,000 to 15,000 people from all over the area.[6] Hyles spoke at 'The Sword of the Lord' conferences with John R. Rice and his own annual "Pastors School". The school continues to attract as many as seven thousand annual visitors to the Hammond area.[12] Hyles wrote approximately fifty works in his lifetime with over 14 million total copies in circulation, including the popular Is There A Hell?, based on a sermon he preached at a National Sword of the Lord Conference.[1] Another work, Enemies of Soul Winning tackled many issues considered controversial in fundamentalist and evangelical circles, which include the doctrine of repentance, Lordship salvation, and the role of the church in soul winning. The Calvary Contender wrote, "Hyles will be remembered as a one-of-a-kind, ever-controversial leader whose ministry touched the lives of multitudes."[13]

Hyles was better known as "Brother Hyles" to his tens of thousands of congregants.[1] Hyles often held nationwide speaking engagements. In 1984, for instance, he addressed a large gathering in the small city of Snyder, Texas, the seat of Scurry County, hosted by pastor Luther Wallace "Buck" Hatfield (1929–1995) of Faith Baptist Church. Independent Baptists from throughout the area, such as Ross J. Spencer from Bethany Baptist Church in Lubbock, organized bus trips to the convention hall in Snyder. Hatfield and Spencer also adapted the bus ministry approach for their congregations. In his book, Enemies of Soulwinning, Hyles taught that one could not be born again unless the King James Version was used somewhere along the line in that person's life.[14] He did not teach Landmarkism/Baptist successionism (the belief that the Baptist church is the original church), but did teach that the church started in AD 31 when Christ was still alive (and not at Pentecost), and that the Catholic Church was started by the Emperor Constantine in AD 313.[15] Taken from wikipedia.org https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jack_Hyles

More works by Jack Hyles


I have been preaching for over 37 years. For almost a quarter of a century, I have pastored the same church. For these many years Wednesday night has been given to verse-by-verse Bible study. None of these studies has been more enriching to the saints than the study of the Holy Spirit. For 16 months we talked of Him, taught of Him, loved Him, spoke to Him and investigated Him.

Requests began to come that I bring some of these studies at the nationwide Pastors’ School where thousands convene each year at the First Baptist Church in Hammond for a week of study and practical help concerning God’s work.

So in Pastors’ School of 1980 and again in 1981 I taught a series of lessons on the Holy Spirit taken from the lessons taught at the First Baptist Church on Wednesday evenings. Soon preachers and laymen began requesting that these lessons be in print. In answer to these petitions, I open my heart to you on the following pages and share with you the truths I have shared with thousands.

Notes on the Holy Spirit 

We see a focus on the biblical material about the Holy Spirit in the following general areas:

  • The Works of the Holy Spirit
  • The Deity of the Holy Spirit
  • The Person of the Holy Spirit
  • The Gifts of the Holy Spirit

About the Holy Spirit

  • The Holy Spirit is the third person of the Trinity.
  • The Holy Spirit is fully God.
  • The Holy Spirit is fully a person. He is not just God's influence or power, but a person in the Godhead.
