For many years Gordon Fee, one of today's foremost evangelical scholars, has been asked to bring his trusted biblical expertise together with his well-known passion for the gospel and the church. Listening to the Spirit in the Text is his answer. Gathered here are Fee's best studies and reflections on the art of attending to the biblical text critically yet with a deep spiritual sensitivity. These insightful chapters cover a wide range of contemporary topics, including the relationship between Bible study and spirituality, gender issues, worship, tongues speaking, church order and leadership, the believer and possessions, and the role of the gospel in our global society.
"Difficult to put down . . . an easy read. . . I cannot recommend this book highly enough: it will refresh the tired mind, resource the preacher and encourage, perhaps even rebuke, the academic."
Eugene Peterson
"These essays show Gordon Fee at his characteristic work, fusing exegetical accuracy and evangelical passion. Words are never mere words for this master exegete. I think of him as our 'resurrection scholar,' calling the words out of the text and setting them before us pulsing with life."
J. I. Packer
"This set of biblical explorations—mostly Pauline, as we would expect—demonstrates Gordon Fee's strength in exegesis, biblical theology, and hermeneutics as he pursues his trinitarian, churchly, life-centered concerns. Fee is a Pentecostal pneumatologist without peer. In his largehearted service of the biblical text he is in every way a model. Brilliant and simple, these chapters will enrich all who take the Bible seriously."
