About-

--A comprehensive account of the role and work of the Spirit, covering the entire Bible.

--Written by a team of leading evangelical scholars, including world authorities such as Craig Bartholomew, David deSilva, James D. G. Dunn, Walter Kaiser and Max Turner.

--Informed by the latest scholarship.

--Will become the standard introductory survey on the subject.

Written by an international team of leading scholars, this is the first comprehensive exploration of the role and work of the Holy Spirit, as witnessed in both the Old and New Testaments. With contributions by Craig Bartholomew, Gary Burge, David deSilva, James D. G. Dunn, David Firth, Walter Kaiser, Wonsuk Ma, John Christopher Thomas, Max Turner, and Matthias Wenk, among others, this authoritative survey will rapidly establish itself as a standard reference point for scholars and students of all theological persuasions.

Any attempt at a "biblical theology" must begin with a careful exegesis of the biblical text. To this end, each contributor addresses the text through a rigorous exegesis of pertinent passages, keeping in mind the genre, canonical contexts, and sweep of redemptive history.

Endorsements & Reviews-

"For anyone who wants to know what the Bible says about the Holy Spirit, this is the book to read! A wealth of leading biblical scholars and theologians, each of whom has a personal engagement with the subject matter, examines the entirety of the (Protestant) biblical canon, helping the reader discover how the biblical texts contribute to a contemporary understanding of the Holy Spirit. Whatever books you choose to read about this vital area of Christian theology, make sure this is one of them."
--Glenn M. Balfour, Principal, Mattersey Hall Christian College, Doncaster

"Pentecost was not the debut of the Holy Spirit. In this broad yet sensitive sweep across the Bible, a team of international scholars shows that from eternity the Spirit has been an active member of the Godhead . . . In a stream of developing themes, this book offers the reader a unique opportunity to explore the generosity of God seen in the life-giving and resurrecting power of his Spirit in the pages of the Bible--and beyond!"
--Graham H. Twelftree, Professor of New Testament and Early Christianity, Regent University, USA

"A remarkable array of scholars assembles here to write a remarkable book that covers most comprehensively the theology of the Spirit from Genesis to Revelation. This collection is focused, coherent, and nonpartisan. Essential reading for every student of the Bible."
--Allan H. Anderson, Professor of Mission and Pentecostal Studies, University of Birmingham
