Good news on the new book project!

On October 4, 2018, I first posted about a new book project that would explore everything the Bible says about the Holy Spirit. I continued to post as the project developed. Then, on April 27, 2019, I posted that the manuscript was finished.

Four days ago, I received an email from Everett Gossard, book editor for the United Pentecostal Church International, that the finished book should be released within the next week or so.

The title is The Holy Spirit: A Commentary. The book is 314 pages long, with forty-four chapters, seven appendices, and thirty pages of endnotes.

Scott Graham, UPCI general secretary, Stan Gleason, assistant general superintendent for the western zone of the UPCI, Michael Ensey, former general youth president for the UPCI and current senior pastor of Christian Life Center in Heath, Ohio, Terry Baughman, member of the board of directors for Urshan College and Urshan Graduate School of Theology and lead pastor of Life Church in Gilbert, Arizona, and David Norris, professor of theological studies at Urshan College and professor of biblical theology at Urshan Graduate School of Theology, will provide written reviews.

The official blog of the UPCI will feature five entries I have written with my own reflections on the process of writing the book with some brief excerpts. The blog is available at

The book will be available at in both hardcopy and digital form. It will also be available as a Kindle download on and as an Apple Book.

The September 2020 issue of the Pentecostal Life magazine includes the first introductory advertisement for the book.

I pray it will be a blessing to all who read it.
