Graham A. Cole: He Who Gives Life

Many debated questions of pneumatology are covered within this book, including whether all of the gifts of the Spirit are applicable today, whether there is such a thing as subsequence, and whether the third article of the Creed should become the starting point for theology today. Whereas the views of Cole may not be representative of the readers of The Pneuma Review at all times, Cole nonetheless does adequately argue for his viewpoint and interpretation, and as such the results of it have to be reckoned with by all. Indeed, though I do not agree with Cole’s interpretation at all points, this book has sharpened my own defense of the theological positions that I hold dear. Notably, this book shows the ultimate selflessness of the Holy Spirit as the member of the Trinity who always works for the glory of God the Father and God the Son and for the good of the saints called by Christ’s name. In conclusion, this book is ideal for readers of The Pneuma Review, including pastors and teachers, as well as students of theology.
