"The level-headed, anecdotally enriched exegesis that Craig Keener offers in this book broadens the categories of Spirit-baptism, ongoing charismata, and current manifestations of the Spirit in a way that is pacifying, unifying, and edifying, and neatly rounds off a good deal of recent debate. Disciplined scholarship and pastoral concern blend here most fruitfully, in lines of argument that have real importance for church life today and tomorrow."--J. I. Packer, professor of theology, Regent College, Vancouver"Both scholarly and warmly personal, it should be helpful to Pentecostals, charismatics, evangelicals, and any others needing a fresh perspective on the Holy Spirit's work today." --Vinson Synan, dean, School of Divinity Regent University, Virginia"If, concerning the person and work of the Holy Spirit, you feel caught between fear, cynicism and scandal on the one hand, and thoughtless, overzealous craziness on the other, and are worried that no sane thinking or practice can be found today, then read Gift and Giver. Keener assures us that we can love and embrace God the Holy Spirit and his gifts with intellectual integrity and a genuine humility that breaks the back of divisiveness."--Todd Hunter, former National Director of the Vineyard in the USA
