Asserting that Luke was not merely a disinterested historian, Stronstad contends that he was a theologian in in his own write-a theologian who intended to convey an unmitigated message about the Holy Spirit, Namely, Stronstad believes, Luke intended to demonstrate that the fullness of the Spirit's activity in the life of believers is normative and ought to be sought out today.
Basing his arguments on the Lukan corpus, Stronstad made the first of what became later many compelling arguments that effected new inquiries into Pneumatology, and set the stage for the emergence of an entire generation of Pentecostal scholars.

-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.
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.
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.
