“We may divide the work of the Spirit into two main categories, i.e., he gives us knowledge and he gives us power. It is crucial that we keep these aspects of his work distinct.” (Page 19)

“I am convinced that the primary aspect of a spiritual gift is not a talent but a task” (Page 74)

“We should note, though, that there are no biblical examples or precedents for addressing the Holy Spirit directly in praise or in prayer. The biblical pattern for prayer seems to be that we should pray to the Father (Matt 6:9), in the name of Jesus as mediator (John 14:13–14; 1 Tim 2:5), through the power of the Holy Spirit (Rom 8:26–27).” (Page 17)

“Human beings, angelic beings, and the divine being are all spirit (pneuma), and all are personal beings. There is no such thing as an impersonal being.” (Page 9)

“Blasphemy literally means ‘speaking against.’ In this context Jesus is referring to someone who speaks actual words of cursing and denunciation against the Spirit, while at the same time rejecting the Spirit’s testimony to Jesus as the Messiah.” (Page 16)

    WOW! Thanks for the heads up Bill. On page 116 under, "The Occult Origin of “Christian” Miracles Today". He goes as far as saying, "...demonic spirits working through unsuspecting people." could this be considered, Blasphemy Against the Holy Spirit? according to (Matthew 12:22–32). He is attributing the work of the Holy Spirit, to satan. There are several things I personally find unnerving about his views. He is very blatant about what he believes and a bit condescending. I do not feel that it is what it claims to be, "A Biblical Study". All I'm saying is if you buy this read with caution. Cottrell, J. (2006). The Holy Spirit: A Biblical Study (p. 116).

    On page 109 in the beginning of the chapter on Demonic Counterfeits, Prof Conttrell clearly calls himself as a cessationist.
