This contemporary classic by renowned scholar Gordon Fee explores the Spirit's significant role in Pauline life and thought.

After Fee published his magisterial God's Empowering Presence, he was asked to write a more accessible volume that would articulate Paul's priorities for experiencing the life of the Spirit in the church. Fee's bestselling introduction to Paul and the Spirit, Paul, the Spirit, and the People of God, went on to sell over 70,000 copies. This book by one of the greatest evangelical and Pentecostal New Testament interpreters of our time argues that the presence of the Spirit is, for Paul and for us, the crucial matter for the Christian life.

This repackaged edition features an updated design and packaging, includes new reflection questions, and adds a foreword by Dean Pinter, who commends the book to a new generation of readers.
