I have no intention of doing this important work justice in this short review, so instead, let me give a few words of appreciation.

I haven't read all of it, but I have read large chunks. Great book by a great exegete, who is always stimulating even when I disagree with him.

Great exegetical writing on the various passages in the Pauline epistles that point to or describe the Holy Spirit and spiritual life.

Fee brings his careful analysis and fine exegesis to the entire corpus of Paul's writings on the Holy Spirit. A very well written book.
