A Biblical Theology of the Holy Spirit Paperback / softback
Edited by Trevor J. Burke, Keith Warrington
A comprehensive account of the role and work of the Spirit, covering the entire Bible.
Written by a team of leading evangelical scholars, including world authorities such as Craig Bartholomew, David deSilva, James D.
G. Dunn, Walter Kaiser and Max Turner. Informed by the latest scholarship. Any attempt at a 'biblical theology' must begin with a careful exegesis of the biblical text.
To this end, each contributor addresses either a book or genre in one of the testaments through a rigorous exegesis of pertinent texts, keeping in mind the genre, canonical contexts and sweep of redemptive history.
The diversity of the biblical documents, and the times in which they were written, will doubtless result in different perspectives and emphases being presented by different biblical authors.
But if one Author stands behind Scripture, one would expect there to be a consistency to emerge from across the biblical canon.
With this in view, each contributor keeps in mind the broader theological themes that may arise from their exegesis of the text, with the aim of attempting a synthesis of the findings.
