Power from on High offers the first critical survey of scholarship on the subject of Luke's view of the Spirit, assessing the rival theories by means of three criteria: continuity with Luke's background, relationship to other aspects of Luke's theology, and Luke's place in the development of more general New Testament thinking about the Spirit. Turner provides fresh insight on specific Lukan concepts and favored terms (including such phrases as ""full of the Holy Spirit"" and ""baptize with the Holy Spirit"") that have been of significance not merely for the discipline of New Testament studies but also for confessional theologies of major streams of Christianity today, and seeks to advance a more coherent understanding of the general shape of Luke's pneumatology than has hitherto been offered. ""It's unthinkable that students and scholars have found it nearly impossible to find Max Turner's book Power from on High: The Spirit in Israel's Restoration and Witness in Luke-Acts. There's simply nothing better on the Holy Spirit in Luke-Acts. I require it in my classes and now my students will be able to have a copy. I'm delighted that Wipf & Stock has made this modern classic available again "" - Joel B. Green, Professor of New Testament Interpretation, Fuller Theological Seminary Max Turner is Senior Lecturer in New Testament at London Bible College.
