I read most of this one through page 160, but not every single page, and then sampled important aspects of the rest of the chapters. Some chapters had summaries of points covered at the end, though most did not. It is too bad this wasn’t provided with each chapter as it would have been very beneficial. I definitely plan to return to certain chapters as needed when studying the Bible to apply their wisdom.

I wasn’t a fan of the writing style so much and it could be repetitive (mostly I don’t think this book is as accessible for most, and could have been written more simply to make it so). That said, my book is full of flags to reference later.

Also, as a disclaimer for those who might need or appreciate it:

The author somewhat promotes his own view of some issues (opinion of best translation—he was one who helped translate the NIV, egalitarian vs complementarian/women’s roles—he leans toward the former). So if this bothers you (as it seems to have some readers; it didn’t bother me personally), it might be good to know that going in.

This is a textbook for those interested in learning more about Paul's perspective on the Holy Spirit. Good for a Pentecostal view on Pauline passages - especially with preaching.
