"And I will pray the Father, and he shall give you another Comforter, that he may abide with you for ever;"
- John 14:16
|Pneumatology is the study of the Holy Spirit and It's work in the body of Christ. This would involve many aspects including the spiritual gifts and the many ministries which the Holy Spirit is involved. As in all the classes here at WOLBI, Dr. Wicks stresses the importance of what God's Word says on the subject. Systematically teaching through the scripture, he covers every aspect of Pneumatology, giving each student the opportunity to grasp the study. Another focus of Dr. Wicks, is that of the practical as opposed to just doctrinal. He instructs why it is important to know what the Bible says and also how to apply it to daily living.|

"I really enjoyed Pneumatology becasue it was very practical. It gave me a better understanding of salvation and the Holy Spirit altogether."
