Exceptional Work.
5 stars By Wally Bocos, Aug 08 2017
Excellent and exceptional work on the question; Did the Holy Spirit INDWELL believers in the OT or just regenerate their hearts to believe (Heart circumcision)? Hamilton, would also include all believers before John 7:39 in his initial thesis. 

The main contention Hamilton makes is the differentiation between "regeneration" and "indwelling" as separate works of the Spirit. 
The connection of the Spirit's dwelling in the OT Temple (among God's people), to the Spirit's dwelling in Christ (the Fulfilled Temple - God among His people) to the Spirit's dwelling in Believers (the Remaining Temple of Christ - God IN Believers) is worth the read. 
 
Well handled. Hamilton was constantly going back to re-stress previous points. Hamilton makes the convincing case that the Spirit did not indwell believers until Jesus was glorified.

Detailed but significant
5 stars By Roo, Apr 15 2010
Hamilton's book is a revision of this doctoral study (under Thomas Schreiner), which itself has spawned a number of significant journal articles.

Hamilton's thesis is that, while the Holy Spirit REGENERATED OT believers, the Spirit did not fully/permanently INDWELL such believers (and the corporate church) until after Jesus' death/resurrection/ascension.

The book offers many benefits and corollaries. We must be careful about what we read/claim for the Spirit in the OT (chapter 3 is a useful introduction to this topic). We must not automatically equate OT salvation with NT salvation. And Hamilton offers a helpful appendix studying the language of the Spirit's coming, baptising, reception, filling, etc in Acts -- language which is today typically misunderstood or misused by both charismatic and conservative believers.

One useful byproduct of the study is that it invites us to think about when Jesus' disciples actually became Christians. Hamilton would judge the Gospels as OT books, with real Christianity beginning on the day of Jesus' resurrection.

A stimulating read for anyone wanting to better understand the Bible's teaching on the OT work of the Spirit, and the magnificent change wrought with the new outpouring of the Spirit after Easter. Pitched at those with some interest in scholarly interaction, it's not a perfectly popular level, but does include practical implications for church identity and discipline, amongst other key issue
