One of eminent biblical scholar Frederick Dale Bruner’s masterworks, A Theology of the Holy Spirit offers helpful insights into the Pentecostal movement and experience of the Spirit, as well as New Testament teaching on the Holy Spirit.
Bruner’s study grows out of the questions he grappled with during his graduate work on the Pentecostalism and Holy Spirit: “Is the Pentecostal teaching on the experience of the Spirit in conformity with the New Testament teaching? Is Acts represented by Pentecostalism today? Should Christians seek a second, what is sometimes called a Pentecostal, experience subsequent to their Christian initiation?” His text offers a thorough exposition of New Testament texts relating to the Holy Spirit, and critical examination of the Pentecostal movement and experience of the Spirit, particularly the Scriptural basis claimed for the theology of the second blessing. Both thorough and clear, this book combines scholarly research with constructive commentary on the life and mission of the contemporary church.
