Item description for An Old Testament Theology of the Spirit of God by Wilf Hildebrandt...
Overview Wilf Hildebrandt carefully explores the meaning of "the Spirit" in the Old Testament. He examines the role of God's Spirit in creation, in the establishment and preservation of God's people, in prophecy, and in Israel's leadership. He unveils the central role that the Spirit plays in creatively bringing about the directives of God. Through the Spirit, God brings order out of chaos, ushers the invisible into reality, makes a separation between the sacred and the profane, enables specific people to meet particular needs, and supersedes natural laws. This work sheds light on the Spirit of God in both the Old Testament and the New Testament.

Tracking the Holy Spirit through the Old Testament Jan 1, 2002
Hildebrandt's book on the Holy Spirit in the Old Testament is a needed work for today. It gives a biblical approach to the study of the Holy Spirit and is informative and well organized. The author tracks the use of the term "spirit" (ru'ah) through various OT groups (leaders, prophets) and moves through the OT chronologically although he is more synchronic than diachronic in his approach. I found it to be very helpful as it stays close to the text even though Hildebradt is no stranger to alternate views. I recommend the book to any who would like a balanced, biblical approach to the study of the Spirit in the OT.
