An Annotated Bibliography
Andrews, Edgar H. The Promise of the Spirit. Darlington, England: Evangelical Press, 1982. Surveys the common ground between charismatic and noncharismatic believers, and then looks at matters such as sealing, baptism, fullness, gifts and related doctrinal issues. Considers D. Martyn Lloyd-Jones’ controversial views on the sealing of the Spirit.
*Bruner, Frederick Dale. A Theology of the Holy Spirit. Grand Rapids: Eerdmans, 1970. Subtitled “The Pentecostal Experience and the New Testament Witness,” this volume has become a bit of a modern “classic” in its field. This is serious scholarship at its best! The bibliographic section is worth the price of the book for research purposes, and the charts, indices and notes add immense weight to his arguments.
*Buchanan, James. The Office and Work of the Holy Spirit. Edinburgh, Scotland: Banner of Truth, 1843, reprint 1966. This classic consists of three parts: “The Spirit’s Work in the Conversion of Sinners,” “Illustrative Cases,” and “The Spirit’s Work in the Edification of His People After Their Conversion.” Takes up matters seldom addressed by modern treatments in chapters such as: “Enlightening the Mind,” “Convicting the Conscience,” and “Revivals.” A must read for those serious about the study of the Spirit.

The late Victor Budgen examines both historical background and contemporary claims, always with an eye on Scripture. Includes response to Wayne Grudem’s views of prophecy which have caused considerable interest among contemporary evangelicals.

A critique of the Vineyard movement and its distinctive teachings and practices which attempts to be irenic and kind, yet helpfully critical. Highly recommended as a fair treatment of this subject.
Congar, Yves. I Believe in the Holy Spirit, 3 volumes. New York: Seabury Press, 1983. A scholarly set written by one of the leading Roman Catholic theologians of our century. Considers the writings of the Fathers, the Reformers and Vatican Councils. Erudite, but practically useful in many ways to serious historical and theological study.
Doyle, Robert, general editor. Signs and Wonders and Evangelicals. Randberg, Box 3993, Australia 2125: Faber Distributors, 1987. A response by four evangelical teachers in Australia to the teaching and practice of John Wimber and the “signs and wonders” movement. Along with ...
