Item Description...
To experience God's Spirit anew--that is the concern of this sensitive and subtle work. Here Michael Welker fuses remarkably probing readings of highly charged biblical testimonies to the Spirit with a keen theological sense for the diverse manifestations of the Spirit today. Welker detects Spirit in the dissonances, contradictions, and fractures of our personal, social, and political life, but also in unexpected deliverance, in the transformation of power structures, and in inklings of reconciliation in a world rent asunder. In Welker's magnetic work the reader is awakened to a new alertness and attention to God the Spirit.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
The Best in a Generation  Dec 18, 2000
I have found this book to be one of the most significant works on the Holy Spirit in a generation. Although it doesn't answer all questions, it shouldn't have to. His position on Pentecostalism and the Charismatic movement is as an outsider looking in, but seems to look upon their concerns quite favorably. His biblical and historical surveys are good. His section on the 'outpouring of the Holy Spirit' is worth the five stars alone. He presents a credible argument against the traditional modern understanding of the Holy Spirit and for an understanding that places the Holy Spirit directly into the lives of believers and into the heart of Christian theology. The Holy Spirit does not take a back seat here as in most Christian theology.
Not convincing. . .  Aug 10, 2000
As a clergyman involved in the Charismatic movement, but also grounded in traditional theological methods, I did not find this book convincing. In my opinion, (and personal experience) Welker's emphasis on freedom in the Spirit can and has led to abuses in the name of that freedom. In the last 50 years, many things in the Church have been justified in the name of "freedom in the Spirit" -- a number of which have been nothing more than exercises in self-justification.

I cannot, in good conscience, recommend this book.
