The Anointed Community: The Holy Spirit in the Johannine Traditionby Gary M. Burge
Recent research on the Johannine literature has concluded that behind these writings stands a flourishing community of Christians who lived under the tutelage of the Beloved Disciple, preserved his writings, and venerated his memory. In this book, Gary M. Burge examines one feature of this community's belief and experience: the role of the Spirit in its view both of Christ and of the Christian experience.
Burge carefully examines all the Spirit passages in the Fourth Gospel and the Johannine Epistles and argues that the Johannine community elevated Spirit-experience to the forefront of Christian life and found in Christ the model of the Spirit-filled person.
Thoroughly researched and well-argued, Burge's systematic study of the pneumatology of John will be valuable to scholars, ministers, and seminary students.
