In 1972, Lord J. Arthur Rank made a grant to Oral Roberts University to endow a Chair in the Holy Spirit. Oral Roberts was the first professor to be holder of that chair, and this course, The Holy Spirit in the Now, is the result of the several classes that Roberts taught concerning the Holy Spirit.
Students of ORU during the 1970s-1990s enjoyed the powerful teaching. Current students are still required to watch these videos in order to understand the role of the Holy Spirit in the life of the founder of the University.
In the 1990s, Dr. Robert Voight took over responsibility for teaching this course and produced this manual, "The Compete and Perfect Salvation in Jesus Christ" for his students.
From Voight's preface:
"In this course we will study the entire spectrum of New Testament scriptures concerning the "COMPLETE, PERFECT SALVATION'we have in Christ Jesus. This salvation includes the gift of God to the church--Jesus Christ; the gifts of Christ to the church--gifts of ministries and the gift of the Holy Spirit; and the provision of the Holy Spirit for the church--the fruit of the Spirit, the gifts of the Spirit, and the Spirit of Truth. After considering all of the provisions--THE SPIRITUALS--that God has made for the church, we will consider a method by which the Holy Spirit actualizes the provisions of God in our lives: THE RENEWAL OF THE MIND. In the latter part of the course, we will review the life, the ministry, and the message of Oral Roberts."
