Endorsements & Reviews-

“Odette Mainville’s…book, The Spirit in Luke-Acts, is a most careful, enlightening, and fresh interpretation of the Holy Spirit’s Role in Luke and Acts, from the surprising starting point of a single verse, Acts 2:33…I wholeheartedly endorse this book….”

-William S. Kurz, S.J., Emeritus Professor of New Testament, Marquette University



“…As someone who has devoted a whole book to a theological exposition of Acts 2:33, I regard this as a most worthwhile endeavor. What emerges is a work that engages fully with the Spirit’s vitality in the life of Jesus and in the mission of the church….”

-William P. Atkinson, PhD, Senior Lecturer, London School of Theology



“…I warmly recommend this insightful reading of Luke-Acts to you. It is filled with interesting exegesis and challenging observations….I trust that you will find this book as enjoyable, enriching, and edifying as I did.”

-Robert P. Menzies, PhD, Missionary-Scholar (China), from the foreword



“Mainville’s…work…integrates the central theme in Luke-Acts, in a way that traditional systematic theology does not, viz, Jesus’s experiences with the Spirit toward the end of creating a ‘community of prophets’…”

-Jon Mark Ruthven, PhD, Professor Emeritus, Regent University School of Divinity



“…Using a redactional and literary approach, Mainville demonstrates that the role of the Holy Spirit is not to be relegated to a mere appendage of Pauline soteriology…”

-James B Shelton, PhD, Professor of New Testament, Oral Roberts University



Mainville’s work is helpful both for its engagement with traditional approaches and for its fresh contributions and insights….This is surely a welcome study.”

-Craig S. Keener, PhD, Professor of Biblical Studies, Asbury Theological Seminary
