    1. The church of Jesus Christ has historically produced voluminous works concerning all matters of doctrine and theology As Solomon wisely observed, Of making many books there is no end Ecc 12 12 However, when it comes to doctrine on the Person and work of the Holy Spirit, there is a comparative neglect with other subjects This may be due in part to a lack of understanding Not only is there less explicit revelation concerning Him in the Scriptures in contrast to the Father and the Son, but there is [...]


    2. Cole s work is easy to read and expansive It is also brief, considering all that it attempts to do He does a good job with the Holy Spirit in the OT He also addresses the role of the Holy Spirit in the life of Christ, but does not highlight the Christocentric role during Christ s lifetime, preferring to speak of the Son submitting to the Spirit which is true insofar as it goes There are many times where he looks at multiple options, but does not argue for one position over another which is frust [...]


    3. Able, even handed survey of the Bible s teaching on the Holy Spirit.Graham Cole has done the Church a service by succinctly sketching out the main lines of the complex data in the Bible about the Third Person of the Trinity and ably assembling them into a coherent picture of His person and ministry.Cole s work is a textbook example of theological method I learned not only from what he wrote but how he wrote it It s careful, learned, and cheerful He does an excellent job of providing balancing pe [...]


    4. The book has good elements, including the review of the mystery of the Holy Spirit and the review of the Old Testament testimony concerning the Holy Spirit.However, in much of the book Cole makes very bold statements without providing any supporting evidence or even discussion on which to base such claims For instance Cole simply makes the statement that baptism in the Spirit is associated with Christian conversion initiation 197 without referring to any biblical evidence or discussion on the su [...]


    5. This book is a well written pneumatology a theology of the Holy Spirit On the plus side, Cole writes well, and he pays attention to biblical theology Also, his theology is solid He is a careful thinker However, often his discussions of particular issues are brief This book could easily have been 50 100 pages longer and would have been better for it.I think this book is best supplemented by James Hamilton s God s Indwelling Spirit He pays attention to the way the Spirit works in the OT and the N [...]


    6. Very informative and readable survey on the doctrine concerning the Holy Spirit I was at times frustrated with the author when he did not consistently provide his own perspective on an issue when critiquing another theologian s perspective on the issue or when presenting the various views of a controversy.


    7. A great read Clear with a critical approach to most issues and a determination to make conclusions only on the basis of firm exegetical support Cole deals with a host of issues very helpfully if briefly occasionally frustratingly briefly.


    8. Fairly brief for a work like this Mostly clear Points where I felt I read about what he d be saying than what he actually said Some parts could be eliminated, others expanded, and still topics should be treated Overall, a good theology on the person and work of the Holy Spirit.



    9. A professor of mine from Trinity wrote this book, which is a very helpful theology of the Holy Spirit A good primer on the often neglected third Person of the Trinity


    10. Awesome from a biblical perspective lacking from practical value typical work coming from a first rate Christian scholar.
