    1. It seems that far too often, the Holy Spirit is viewed as something of a New Testament phenomenon, a part of the godhead that sort of sat on the sidelines for the first 39 books of the Bible while God and at times a pre-incarnate Jesus took care of things. Of course nothing could be further from the truth given the Holy Spirit has been active from eternity past and will be active until eternity future. James Hamilton, in his helpful book God’s Indwelling Presence: The Holy Spirit in the Old &a [...]


    2. James M. Hamilton Jr. is Professor of Biblical Theology at the Southern Baptist Theological Seminary in Louisville, Kentucky. Hamilton has a ThM from Dallas Theological Seminary and a PhD from the Southern Baptist Theological Seminary. Hamilton is the author of numerous books in the field of biblical theology, including God's Glory in Salvation through Judgement: A Biblical Theology, What Is Biblical Theology?: A Guide to the Bible's Story, and With the Clouds of Heaven: The Book of Daniel in Bi [...]


    3. Hamilton's work has great content. I believe it is a little too concise to be exceptionally compelling, though. It is so heavily footnoted (evidence of the breadth of research, for sure) that it feels abbreviated. I would love to see an extended edition that allots more space to many of the subheadings. I enjoyed his argument linking the indwelling presence of the Spirit and the temple, both OT and NT. I am not often one to let a single verse drive a matter, but his emphasis on Jn 7:39 is warran [...]


    4. Regeneration and Indwelling ExaminedExcellent presentation of the Biblical evidence for the role of the Holy Spirit before and after the cross. I found it very interesting that the author changed his position on the topic while conducting the research for this presentation.


    5. This was a great read! I used it for a class I taught at our church on the Holy Spirit in the OT. Very helpful for that focus! It gives a great biblical perspective on the Holy Spirit as well as working through some specific issues like indwelling, regeneration, and continuity/discontinuity.


    6. Biblical Theology of the Holy Spirit. Hamilton's thesis: "In the old covenant God faithfully remained with His people, accompanying them in a pillar of fire and cloud, then dwelling among them in the tabernacle and the temple. Under the new covenant, the only temple is the believing community itself, and God dwells not only among the community corporately . . . but also in each member individually" (3). Oddly he focuses on church discipline at the end (?): weird application considering the acade [...]


    7. As I've grown as a Christian and come to understand what the Bible teaches about the depravity of man and the need for regeneration from the Holy Spirit, a question that's always bothered me is how did Old Testament believers, those who lack the indwelling presence of the Holy Spirit, come to faith. Hamilton answers that question with two interesting explanations. First, the Holy Spirit would have been present in the tabernacle/temple for the Hebrews to corporately enjoy (though not individually [...]


    8. Extremely helpful. Encouraging and uplifting.However, the last chapter was wanting so much more. And, sadly, Hamilton, why????? did you choose the application you chose? And the tone in which you wrote was so less encouraging.Hamilton could have done so much more with the last chapter. You could have Hamilton! But I write this as a supporter, I'm rooting for you! So if you ever read this review, don't be disheartened, just go to Yeshu, go to the cross, remember His love and then try again! I jus [...]


    9. 3 star rating.I rate this work at 3.For me it was a slow read,as I was not familiar with some of the theological references and had to look them up before proceeding. However overall,my understanding of the work of the Holy Spirit improved,both in the context of the old and new testaments.


    10. There is no question this is a scholarly work and as such it can be hard to read at points. However, this book clearly articulates the ministry of the Holy Spirit and His work in believers in both the Old and New Testaments. Significant treatment is given to the role of the Holy Spirit in the book of John (and includes wonderful insight into the "temple" and its place in both the O.T. and N.T.) and a very helpful appendix on the works of Luke and the "baptism" of the Holy Spirit is included.If y [...]


    11. Were believers in the Old Testament indwelt by the Holy Spirit? Hamilton thought so until he began writing this book, which led him to a different conclusion. After careful examination of key passages, Hamilton draws parallels between circumcision of the heart and regeneration, as well as the writing of the law on the heart and the indwelling of the Spirit. The writing is academic, and occasionally dry, but His work is thorough and arguments are compelling.


    12. Excellent book which distinguishes between the indwelling of the Spirit (a New Testament reality) and regeneration by the Spirit (both Testaments). Even though it is a little dense in places, it is well written and full of insight into the theology of the Spirit in John's gospel. Appendix 3 which deals with the Spirit in Acts is also very helpful.


    13. Dr. Hamilton provides clear, precise argumentations as he seeks to answer the question of whether Old Testament believers were indwelt with the Holy Spirit. He also gives clear distinctions of the differences between Spirit-indwelling and regeneration, which are often assumed to be synonymous.


    14. Thorough, Helpful, Insightful, Intellectually honest— he makes a strong case for the distinction between Spirit-regeneration and Spirit-Indwelling. Concludes: believers in the OT were regenerated but not indwelt, as Indwelling was an eschatological promise brought about by Messiah.


    15. A well-written book that clearly describes an important distinction between the Old and New Covenants that I think most Christians probably don't understand.


    16. A great Biblical Theology of the Spirit's work with emphasis on the differences of his work in the covenants, corporate and individual, and the use of the Spirit in John and Acts.
