Publisher Description

In this sequel to perhaps the most significant biblical studies book by a Pentecostal scholar, The Charismatic Theology of St. Luke, Roger Stronstad makes a compelling case for understanding Lukan pneumatology as arguing for the prophethood of all believers. By means of careful literary and theological analyses of Luke-Acts Stronstad discovers this emergent theme, whereby Spirit baptism is understood to result in prophetic deeds and words on the part of the recipients. In point of fact, the experience of Spirit baptism results in the creation of prophetic communities whose goal is to take the gospel to 'the ends of the earth'. Stronstad traces this theme in the infancy narratives, the life of Jesus, the company of Spirit-baptized believers, and the acts of the charismatic prophets (Stephen, Philip, Barnabas, Agabus, Peter, and Paul). Stronstad's bold proposal has already borne much fruit for Pentecostal Luke-Acts scholarship and beyond. This slightly revised version will ensure its continued influence in studies devoted to Luke-Acts and New Testament pneumatology.
