A book on Renewal Theology finally written by a serious theologian for everyone. This is the one book I can recommend without hesitation to anybody, whether they are well read or not. Definitely not your everyday systematic theology book, even my wife reads it! I have read a fair bit of theology by lay person standards, (if there is such a thing as a layperson) and have found this book to be the perfect book for hungry people looking to make sense of their salvation, the person Jesus Christ, his humanity and glorification, and especially the work of the Holy Spirit. Topically the book is very comprehensive (1500 pages), the greek references are well explained and the footnotes are well done, he refers to most of the relevant major players and you don't need to have previously read everyone footnoted to know what's going on. Everyone I have recommended this to,or bought it for, Elders,Pastors and lay people has loved it. God has used it to create in them a deeper love for Jesus by giving them a deeper understanding of who he is. It is especially clear on the work of the Holy Spirit in the Church with much focus on his mission to manifest Christ through the church by empowering her to reach the world. All without any flakiness, something sorely needed.

Great book very easy to read. Five stars for the writing style and content. Combination of three books without a one stop source for content was the only negative.

An excellent companion to various other systematic theology works, except that, written from a Reformed perspective, it is out-of-step with the vast predominance of Pentecostal thought and doctrine in that area.

I'm 1/4 the way through and am enjoying reading it, it's a companion to R.T. Kendall's, Wayne Grudem's & Kevin Conner's work as Pentecostal/Charismatic perspectives on theology.

A well reasoned and articulate explanation of the Christian faith from a Pentecostal/Charismatic perspective. Warm, thoughtful and engaging, Williams more than covers essential Christian doctrine, while at the same time devoting extensive coverage to the Person and work of the Holy Spirit, something that many systematic theologies struggle to provide. A total of 272 pages are given to the Holy Spirit, His coming, the phenomenon of tongues, the mission of the Holy Spirit, reception of, effects of, and the gifts of the Holy Spirit including a chapter on the "ninefold manifestation" outlined in 1 Corinthians 12:7-10. Williams vigorously engages the relevant biblical literature on these topics, with ample footnoting. In my opinion, this is a unique, must-have resource for any Christian leader or pastor who desires a fuller understanding of the Holy Spirit and His role both in the Church and in the world today.

This is a highly readable book dealing with systematic theologyfrom a reformed position yet with a thoroughly Biblical exposition of the Holy Spirit, the role of the Spirit in a Christian'slife, gifts of the Spirit, and the current renewal movement (whichalmost all other reformed theology ignores). Many have said that this book combines the intellectual foundation that the charismatic movement has needed. This book is for every Christian looking to strengthen their mind with the truth of God's Word while at the same time drawing one closer in that vital relationship with the Triune God that is absolutely necessary to make theology come alive in words and deeds. Many of my theologically untrained friends have read this book and have found it very easy to read yet life changing. It confirmed to them the reality and theological basis of the Holy Spirit in their lives today. Dr. Williams' character and enthusiasm for the truth of God shines through each of the chapters. Though most Refornmedtheologians would balk at the spiritual emphasis found herein, they must deal with the sound approach Dr. Williams provides concerning the ministry of the Holy Spirit today. They would certainly be challenged with his exposition on limited atonement, and foreordination or predestination vs. free-will debates which he attempts to show the Biblical truth that both miss. I highly recommend this book (actually 3 in 1 --no pun intended!)to every believer seeking to read a theologicalbook that not only stimulates the intellect providing truth and wisdom from God's Word but also encourages the heart in one's relationship to God and to the Church.
