A comprehensive and historical look at the Holy Spirit based on Jewish and Early Christian themes and how this discussion can bring unity of understanding to the church today.
Drawing on his previous work Filled with the Spirit, in his new book Inspired Levison presents a readable yet scholarly presentation in which he draws from the history of the Old Testament and the understanding of the Spirit as present in every individual. He goes beyond the arguments of Acts 2 and instead takes a wider survey of the historical experience of the Spirit. Levison connects 'scripture and the spirit, ecstasy and edification, inspiration and investigation.' The Spirit is not separate from learning but inspires learning; ecstasy is not devoid of comprehension but founded upon it. Ultimately Levison desires to see the church unified by this same Spirit.
