This book is a commentary on all the major biblical texts dealing with the Spirit, from Genesis to Revelation. It is an invaluable reference book for students, teachers, ministers, Bible study groups, or anyone interested in the Person and work in the Holy Spirit. It perhaps found its widest use during the Charismatic renewal among both Protestants and Catholics, and has remained a classic ever since. The author, George T. Montague, has not only provided a rich and thoughtful commentary on individual passages, but he has, by the nature of this work, offered a multifaceted overview of the growth of the biblical doctrine on the Spirit covering many centuries. From the time of the Yahwist, when the Spirit was pictured as God's breath of life, to the personalized understanding of the Spirit in the Fourth Gospel, the biblical doctrine of the Spirit has evidenced steady development. Using the findings of reliable scholarship, but never burdening the reader with academic trivialities, Professor Montague places a wealth of theological knowledge within the grasp of persons seeking to learn more about the Holy Spirit and striving to enrich their own spirituality.
