I am grateful to Brother Gleason for his review of my new book, The Holy Spirit: A Commentary. Here it is:

In his well-conceived and brilliantly presented work, The Holy Spirit, author Daniel Segraves brings a unique Oneness Pentecostal hermeneutic to the Word of God. He has done all the hard work yet offers a user-friendly breakthrough treatment of every mention of the Holy Spirit in Scripture. In his thorough manner, Segraves situates Old Testament references to the Holy Spirit as God in action, but that something better is coming. Later, he contextualizes the Holy Spirit references in the epistles that something better has definitely come. But what was anticipated by the prophets in the Old Testament, and its profound impact on New Testament believers is inextricably linked together in this author’s treatment of what came in between: the promised baptism of the Holy Spirit, as initially evidenced by speaking with other tongues. Segraves’ scholarly unpacking of this holistic Biblical understanding clearly reveals that the Holy Spirit is not a person or a separate consciousness of God but rather God progressively revealing Himself in action. As a lifelong reader of the Bible, I can testify that many Scriptures have taken on new meaning while reading them through the interpretive lens Segraves has thoughtfully presented. I enthusiastically commend this presentation to your library.

The Holy Spirit: A Commentary will soon be available in hardback and as an eBook at It will also be available shortly as a Kindle download and Apple Book as well.
