Presence, Power and Promise
Full Product Description
However, while the Spirit of God is an important subject in the Old Testament, it has been the focus of surprisingly little scholarship.
In response, this volume assembles some of the best Old Testament scholars to address various aspects of the subject. Major thematic essays and studies of specific, relevant biblical texts are arranged in eight main sections: orientation and Ancient Near Eastern context; the Spirit and creation, wisdom, creativity, prophesy, leadership and the future; and finally, the Spirit at Qumran.
Here is evangelical scholarship that will inform, stimulate and reward diligent students, teachers and preachers of the Old Testament.
The contributors are Andrew Abernethy, Richard E. Averbeck, Daniel I. Block, Robert B. Chisholm Jr, Rosalind Clarke, Daniel J. Estes, David G. Firth, Jamie A. Grant, Richard S. Hess, Robert L. Hubbard Jr, Tremper Longman III, Geert W. Lorein, Hilary Marlow, Eugene H. Merrill, Erika Moore, John W. Oswalt, Robin Routledge, Willem VanGemeren, John H. Walton, Paul D. Wegner and Lindsay Wilson.

Presence, Power and PromiseIan Gibbs, via The Good Book Stall
The long form of the title of this collection of contributions makes clear the aim of the various writers. This is not the last word on the subject but it is looked at here in a variety of ways, and can stimulate the reader into making their own enquiry into this huge subject. The reader may be surprised by the inclusion say of a section on ‘Bezalel and Oholiab: Spirit and Creativity,’ but this is an area which deserves more scholarly attention than it has to date. It would be helpful for the contributors to direct their enquiries to other areas of the Spirit’s activity.
