I HAVE TRULY ENJOYED READING THIS NEW PERSPECTIVE ON THEOLOGY FROM A PENECOSTAL PERSPECTIVE, ONE OF THE FIRST SCHOLARLY ONES AT THAT, WITH EXCELLENT FOOT NOTES AND FEATURES. THIS COVERS EVERY MAJOR DOCTRINE .
A book on Renewal Theology finally written by a serious theologian for everyone. This is the one book I can recommend without hesitation to anybody, whether they are well read or not. Definitely not your everyday systematic theology book, even my wife reads it! I have read a fair bit of theology by lay person standards, (if there is such a thing as a layperson) and have found this book to be the perfect book for hungry people looking to make sense of their salvation, the person Jesus Christ, his humanity and glorification, and especially the work of the Holy Spirit. Topically the book is very comprehensive (1500 pages), the greek references are well explained and the footnotes are well done, he refers to most of the relevant major players and you don't need to have previously read everyone footnoted to know what's going on. Everyone I have recommended this to,or bought it for, Elders,Pastors and lay people has loved it. God has used it to create in them a deeper love for Jesus by giving them a deeper understanding of who he is. It is especially clear on the work of the Holy Spirit in the Church with much focus on his mission to manifest Christ through the church by empowering her to reach the world. All without any flakiness, something sorely needed.
An excellent companion to various other systematic theology works, except that, written from a Reformed perspective, it is out-of-step with the vast predominance of Pentecostal thought and doctrine in that area.
