Publisher's Description

"Fee's book is the most comprehensive treatment available of Paul's understanding of the Holy Spirit, a topic that has rarely received sufficient attention in studies of Pauline theology. Fee's method is exemplary: he first analyzes Paul's statements about the Spirit, in each individual letter, and then moves to a synthesis of Paul's general pneumatology. The result is a book that is deeply exegetical, doing justice both to the particularity of Paul's writings and to the fundamental unity of his vision for the Spirit's role in the life of the Christian community. Most importantly, Fee emphasizes insistently that the Holy Spirit must be experienced as a living presence within the church. That message is both faithful to Paul and urgent for the community of faith in our time."--Richard B. Hays, professor of New Testament, Duke University Divinity School

"With the energy and care that is a trademark of his work, Gordon Fee here fills a significant gap in Pauline studies. Both those who find talk about the Holy Spirit congenial and those who would happily marginalize it will be instructed by this book. Fee makes a genuine contribution as he examines Paul's letters in conversation with both the exegetical tradition of the academy and the pressing needs of the church."--Beverly R. Gaventa, professor of New Testament and exegesis, Princeton Theological Seminary

"Fee uniquely combines professional competence as a text critic, an exegete, an author and editor of major commentaries, and a foremost evangelical interpreter of Paul with a lifetime of formation and ministry among the Pentecostals--this century's providential witnesses to the work of the Spirit of God among us. . . . Fee's work offers an enduring encyclopedia of Pauline pneumatological exegesis, easy to consult for next Sunday's sermon, yet substantial enough to take its place near George Ladd's Theology of the New Testament as a must-have, within arm's reach, for serious interpreters of Paul's gospel. . . . Fee's work is the theological crown of a distinguished exegetical career."--Russell P. Spittler, senior professor of New Testament, Fuller Theological Seminary

    A wonderful book

    Gordon Fee's "Empowering Presence" is a wonderful study on the Holy Spirit in the epistles of Paul. In the first three quarters of this voluminous book Fee looks at all of the passages mentioning the Spirit with thoroughness and much insight. This serves the student and teacher interested in the topic very well, but makes it quite tedious for the average reader. Yet, Fee's exegetical skill and spiritual judgment are thorough and well based on Scripture. The last quarter of the book is much more accessible to the average reader than the first part. It systematizes the previous findings presenting them under useful headlines and categories. Especially related issues like the Spirit and proclamation, baptism, community formation, worship and spiritual gifts are well presented and frequently made quite practical as well. With this the book becomes a valuable resource on the topic of the Holy Spirit within Pauline theology of which there are not too many to compare.

    This book has substance which you will not find just anywhere. Gordon Fee has accomplished what, as far as I know, that no one else has done with such thoroughness. What he has to say is important to anyone interested in the mission and ministry of the Holy Spirit. Many times we "forget" that there is a third person of the Trinity that is still actively working and moving in our world today. The world that the Apostolic church functioned in is not that much different from the world that live in today. Maybe there is something that we need to relearn from Paul and the early Christians. This book will enrich not only those who have a Pentecostal/Charismatic background, but also those who don't. Fee not only does a verse by verse exegesis, but then has several chapters in which he highlights various topics. Very insightful and challenging.
