    This book is a much more intensive theological analysis of 5 views on how the Holy Spirit

    enters our life both at salvation (justification) and then post-salvation (sanctification) when

    compared to the 1987 Zondervan publication on FIVE VIEWS ON SANCTIFICATION. Each

    author presents his own view and then the 4 others critique that view.

    The 5 views in this book are:

    1. The Reformed View

    2. The Pentecostal View

    3. The Charismatic View

    4. The Wesleyan View

    5. The Roman Catholic View

    Unfortunately, in the table of contents of this book does not list the 4 response/critiques

    of each view but be assured, they are present at the end of each major essay in this book.

    This may have led to this book being undersold since many who read these type of books,

    like me, would pass it over if there were no response/critiques to each of the 5 views

    presented in this book. Again, although the Table of Contents does not list the

    response/critiques, be assured, they are present in this book.

    The longest essay in this book is the Charismatic View which believes strongly

    in a post-salvation encounter with the Holy Spirit and yet does not demand

    a specific sign to indicate that this has happened in the Christian's life.

    The Reformed View is the shortest essay in this book teaching that one has

    all assets at salvation.

    Zondervan does have a comparable debate book in a 1995 publication:

    ARE MIRACULOUS GIFTS FOR TODAY? which presents and debates 4 views.

    However, this Zondervan 1995 publication focuses more on whether such

    miraculous gifts are normative or just a part of past redemptive history.

    This book by Broadman and Holman actually focuses in on the how the

    Holy Spirit enters our life at salvation and also (if assumed) enter our life

    post-salvation for empowerment, godly living, and power ministry.

    This book has more reading material due to the higher frequency

    of words per page compared to the other two Zondervan publications.

    Not recommended for new Christians, this book will provide a Christian

    who has had some serious theological training with an excellent survey

    of how the Holy Spirit works in the life of a Christian.
