Publisher's Description

What is the meaning of the Holy Spirit's activity in Luke-Acts, and what are its implications for today? Roger Stronstad offers a cogent and thought-provoking study of Luke as a charismatic theologian whose understanding of the Spirit was shaped wholly by his understanding of Jesus and the nature of the early church. Stronstad locates Luke's pneumatology in the historical background of Judaism and views Luke as an independent theologian who makes a unique contribution to the pneumatology of the New Testament. This work challenges traditional Protestants to reexamine the impact of Pentecost and explores the Spirit's role in equipping God's people for the unfinished task of mission. The second edition has been revised and updated throughout and includes a new foreword by Mark Allan Powell.

Author Bio

Roger Stronstad (MCS, Regent College; DD, Christian Bible College) is director and associate professor in Bible and theology at Summit Pacific College in Abbotsford, British Columbia. He is the author of many articles and six books, including The Prophethood of All Believers: A Study in Luke's Charismatic Theology. He also coedited Life in the Spirit New Testament Commentary.

Endorsements

In my opinion, Roger Stronstad's The Charismatic Theology of St. Luke is perhaps the most important biblical studies book ever written by a Pentecostal. Truly a seminal work, this slim volume caused a seismic shift in the terrain of pentecostal biblical scholarship, changing forever its fundamental character while sending tremors beyond the tradition in all directions. I am delighted that this exceedingly important piece will continue its well-deserved shelf life, extending its availability for readers old and new. My commendation to Baker Academic for issuing this valuable new edition.
-John Christopher Thomas,
Clarence J. Abbott Professor of Biblical Studies, Pentecostal Theological Seminary

The most influential work on Lukan pneumatology of this generation! Twenty-five years ago, Stronstad solidified my earliest convictions about the activity of the Holy Spirit. Today, my students echo the same refrain. Those familiar with pentecostal/charismatic teaching on the Spirit-filled life find fodder for fresh reflection and exploration. Those not familiar receive a challenging invitation for renewed pursuit of the Spirit. I could not be happier that this book has been revised and will remain in print.
-Martin Mittelstadt,
associate professor of New Testament, Evangel University

With the publication of Stronstad's The Charismatic Theology of St. Luke in 1984, pentecostal scholarship on Luke-Acts introduced itself to the academic community. Stronstad advanced a simple narrative approach to Luke's writings: take the text seriously by following the storyline. By tracking plot patterns and considering Luke's storytelling techniques, Stronstad found Luke's understanding of the mission of Christ and the church, and the nature of Spirit empowerment to effect it. In our graduate curriculum, this book is the cornerstone of our 'pentecostal distinctives' course. With this updated edition by a new publisher, Baker Academic, the book's contribution will live on, hopefully until the mission is complete.
-Van Johnson,
Dean, Master's Pentecostal Seminary, Toronto

In all, this work is a solid contribution to pentecostal theology and successfully answers the critics who claim that pentecostal theology is exegetically weak. I recommend this book highly with the suggestion that it should be in the library of any serious student of the Holy Spirit and the Word.
-Gary M. Burge,
Pneuma: The Journal of the Society for Pentecostal Studies
