"Fee uniquely combines professional competence as a text critic, an exegete, an author and editor of major commentaries, and a foremost evangelical interpreter of Paul with a lifetime of formation and ministry among the Pentecostals" this century's providential witnesses to the work of the Spirit of God among us.." . . Fee's work offers an enduring encyclopedia of Pauline pneumatological exegesis, easy to consult for next Sunday's sermon, yet substantial enough to take its place near George Ladd's Theology of the New Testament as a must-have, within arms' reach for serious interpreters of Paul's gospel. . . . Fee's work is the theological crown of a distinguished exegetical career."" Russell P. Spittler, Director of the David du Plessis Center for Christian Spirituality, Professor of New Testament, Fuller Theological Seminary"Our appreciation of the Holy Spirit in Paul" both in academic and larger church circles" has long needed thorough exegetical and theological analysis. By focusing on careful examination of every Pauline text related to the Spirit, Gordon Fee has helpfully filled this lacuna."" Joel B. Green, Associate Professor of NT, American Baptist Seminary of the West, Graduate Theological Union, Berkeley"Students of Paul's letters and theology have long been in need of a major scholarly investigation of his treatment of the Spirit. By providing such an investigation with the same high standards of scholarship and skills of communication exhibited in his outstanding commentary on 1 Corinthians, and by doing so with an eye on the present renewed interest in the work of the Spirit in the church, Gordon Fee has put us doubly in his debt. His effective combinationof thorough and robust exegesis with invigorating theological reflection that views Paul's experience of and concern with the Spirit from an eschatological and Trinitarian perspective drives home what we should have known" that the Spirit is far more central to Paul's thought than most of his interpreters have recognized. Fee's comprehensive and challenging new study will be appreciated not only by professional interpreters of Paul but by all who have a serious interest in the biblical resources for spiritual renewal.""

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.
