Dr. Leo Sánchez, who has written extensively on the person and work of the Holy Spirit, joins Justin Rossow in this opening episode of Season 5 of the Next Step Podcast. The entire season will focus on the resource Come, Holy Spirit: A daily discipleship travel log for Easter to Pentecost from Next Step Press.

After a brief introduction and an opening prayer, you’ll hear Leo read from his foreword to the Come, Holy Spirit volume and the two authors will discuss why we don’t pray to the Holy Spirit as often as we might. After a discussion of the book Sculptor Spirit: Models of Sanctification from Spirit Christology, you will also hear Justin read part of his introduction, which is set on that first Easter evening.
