Item description for When Jesus Said Goodbye: John's Witness to the Holy Spirit by Frank G. Carver...
This contribution by Dr. Frank Carver is the product of fruitful, painstaking research into the intracacies of the Beloved Disciple's understanding of the Holy Spirit. He not only surveys what the Fourth Gospel has to say about the Spirit but also provides eminently useful insights into the New Testament's presentation of the Spirit in His relation to Jesus Christ. Carver uncovers the original meaning of John's theology with confidence and poignancy, while also displaying these truths powerfully to our own generation. When Jesus Said Good-bye goes far in deepening the reader's understandings of the intimate workings of the Holy Spirit. He is Christ's 'other Self' and as such is how we are to live as followers of Jesus. One cannot read this study thoughtfully and prayerfully without being moved to an increrased desire for a great oneness with the Father and with the Son through the life of the Spirit.

A masterfully researched study of Johannine Pneumatology Jul 7, 1999
The author of this book, Frank G. Carver, is a NT scholar with special expertise in Johannine studies. He also is a mystic who has penetrated to the heart of Jesus' Upper Room discourses in the Fourth Gospel. The reader of this study senses that Carver himself enjoys the experience of the Spirit that Jesus defines there. The volume is the culmination of years of teaching both graduate and undergraduate students. It cites the most authoritative studies of the Fourth Gospel, Catholic as well as Protestant, drawing also from the deep wells of Christian mysticism. The author writes from within the tradition of John Wesley, but often reads Wesley through the lenses of St. John of the Cross, whom he extensively quotes. The book represens a cross-fertilization of the Catholic (both Eastern and Western) and Protestant traditions. which gives the study its uniqueness and richness. Dr. Carver is also a seasoned and effective preacher; this book offers a wealth of practical, edifying sermon material for the minister who would proclaim the Johannine Christ's promise of the Spirit.
