Spirit Baptism in the Whole Bible

New book introduces readers to the coming of the Holy Spirit seen throughout Scripture.

Spirit Baptism in the Old and New Testaments (Not Just Acts) is an e-book recently written by Dr. Andrew Gabriel for a general Christian audience. Gabriel is a Canadian Pentecostal theologian and the author of three books and numerous articles and essays, many of which focus on Pentecostal theology and the doctrine of the Holy Spirit.

Debates about Spirit baptism often focus on interpreting key passages in the book of Acts or Paul’s letters. As the title of Gabriel’s book implies, this book invites readers to think beyond Acts (or the Pauline letters) to the whole canon of Scripture. Gabriel begins with the observation that the Scripture describes the Spirit baptism that took place at Pentecost with numerous metaphors. He then presents key passages throughout the Bible that describe the outpouring of the Spirit with these metaphors.

A central point in this short book is that the Old Testament includes numerous expectations that would accompany the coming of the Spirit. As Jesus baptized believers at Pentecost, these promises begin to be fulfilled.

Overall, Gabriel’s e-book invites readers to come to the Bible with fresh eyes and to reconsider their interpretation of Spirit baptism in light of the whole canon of Scripture.
