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.

    This book was written in 1997. The sample pages contain 1960's quotes. There has been much change in Pentecost between 1997-2016.

    Thank you for your review of this book Robert. Your short post got me to the core of what I was seeking before I added this book to my collection. Although I utilize Logos for the collection of commentaries and word studies and so forth, I remain disappointed on the heavy denominational influence of this tool. The Lord is moving mightily in these last days through many educated and well respected men and women of God. I'm sadden that the many contributing Godly writers and authors for the Logos product still base the majority of their material and reference books on the mainline teachings of their denomination.

    I read the sample pages with interest and commend the author for his efforts. I will not add it to my collection however. The reason is that the comments, although good, follow similar lines of many other commentaries about "pentecostalism". They usually emanate from those who have never "had the experience" and are thus missing the core to the matter. I grew up in an Anglican environment, not a Pentecostal environment, but discovered what the Pentecostals experience without any external input from others. I was hungry and researched the scriptures for myself and now, as a non-denominational preacher have proved at first hand that this is a very real and scripturally sound Christian experience. Frederick Bruner's per the sample pages is good, but as I said, I will not buy a copy. The reason? I ask him and others like him to cut past the intellectual and denominational approach and pray for truth.
