Having exegeted the great bulk of the Pauline Epistles, Fee then feels able to make some observations and conclusions about Paul's general pneumatology in the last 100 pages of this nearly 1000 page book. He concludes that the Spirit was for Paul more real and evident than we can possibly imagine in our day and age, that the presence of the Spirit was an assumed reality, because of which specific theological discussion is limited. But in the off hand remarks, asides, benedictions, and other such casual comments Gordon Fee is able to discover and lay out eight primary conclusions about Pauline pneumatology.Read more ›
for your pastor. Fee, one of the leading contemporary New
Testament scholars--in evangelical and non-evangelical
circles--high-lights, analyzes, exegetes, and summarizes
every mention of the Holy Spirit in Paul's writings.
This outstanding book is not marred by a dry-as-dust treatment
of this aspect of God's empowering Presence in the life of
the church. No better book on the subject is on the market
As a gift for your pastor, Fee's work will be at his side when
he prepares for Sunday's proclamation, for it was written, the
author says, to get to "the heart of Paul's view of things
regarding the Spirit." (p. 896) Fee succeeds admirably.
Fee seems to have an excellent sense of Scripture's overall viewpoint and is able to interpret small segments of Scripture more sensibly because of that. He is obviously a committed believer in Jesus, a godly man, and it shows in his writings. I am thankful for him and for this book. His understanding of the sacred integrity of the Word of God shines through. If you appreciate meticulous, detailed study of the Word, this book is a good buy.

This is by far a more academic book that he has authored, but it is invaluable when doing NT theology. A dense yet readable addition to any theologian!Published on May 15, 2014 by jedi008
It is everything I expected. A very voluminous book but also quite clarifying regarding the Holy Spirit in Scripture and in our lives.Published on January 23, 2014 by Donald G. Havener
