Book Description

1 Sep 1996
"In Paul, the Spirit, and the People of God, Pentecostal scholar Gordon Fee has redefined the terms of the discussion about the Holy Spirit in a way that transcends today's paradigm of 'charismatic' or 'noncharismatic' orientation. His words are a strong reminder of what God, through his Holy Spirit, intends the church to be. . . . His work is an attempt to point us back to the Bible and reinvigorate our own vision of how the Spirit mobilizes the community of believers in the local church." -Wendy Murray, author; former senior writer, Christianity Today "Gordon Fee, one of our truly master exegetes, has put steel and sinew into the words Spirit, spirit, and spiritual-words that have become flabby through subjectivizing indulgence and lack of exegetical exercise. His accurate, fresh, and passionate recovery of the place and meaning of Spirit in Paul and for us Christians is a provocative stimulus and reliable guide to the recovery of the experienced presence of God in our lives. For those of us who want to live in continuity with all that has been revealed in Jesus and given in the Spirit, this is an eminently practical book. "-Eugene H. Peterson, professor emeritus of spiritual theology, Regent College "Gordon Fee is one of the finest Bible expositors I have known. Whenever he speaks and writes, I listen, and recommend you do the same."-Chuck Colson, founder, Prison Fellowship Ministries

4.0 out of 5 stars classic 18 Feb 2001
By A Customer
gordon d. fee has done everyone a favour. this is a scaled-down version of 'God's empowering presence', without all the pages of greek exegesis. suitable reading for the lay-theologian, a good devotional read.
particularly interesting are his comments on the flesh-spirit theme, and he certainly deserves to be heard in this regard. he competently expounds paul's theology of what it means to be 'in the spirit' and 'walking in the spirit' (though the reader will have to go to GEP for the full exegetical background)and exposes the shallowness of the prevailing evangelical view that flesh and spirit is about the unceasing internal battle between two natures, a doctrine which can be used to cover up sin and obscure the reality of the freedom believers have in Christ.
fee's findings make great pastoral theology, and i have found his insights invaluable, both in my own life and in teaching others. my only concern is that his emphasis on the spirit may tend to promote a corresponding de-emphasis on Christ, who is the central figure in paul's teaching.

2.0 out of 5 stars A view of Paul as a charismatic. 17 Nov 2011
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Mr. Fee believes in contemporary tongue-speaking etc. He also takes Romans chapter seven to be entirely an experience of pre-conversion.There are other flaws in the book, but this should be sufficient warning regarding the contents.
