About-

This book explores the Christian religious experience of the pneuma given in 1 Corinthians 12 and 14. The experience Paul mentions in these texts, as well as the mention of "spirits" in three different places, suggest that Paul was actually writing about communicating with the spirit world.

Endorsements & Reviews-

"Tibbs' reading is entirely permissible within the lexical, grammatical, and cultural matrices in which Paul moved, and he correctly asks whether '(the) holy spirit' must be understood as a person distinct from other spirits in the spirit world."
--excerpt from the review in Catholic Biblical Quarterly 71.3, 2009, by JOHN R. LEVISON, author of The Spirit in First Century Judaism and Filled with the Spirit
