If you are a part of the biblical studies yahoo group – their is a Q&A colloquium going with Dr. Levison.  Certainly this book will not be without controversy (one potentially controversial point being that Levison refuses capitalization of the English “spirit” in his work) but probably, it should be read and considered by Pentecostals and non-Pentecostals alike.   It seems, both will be forced to wrestle with issues related to the occurances of ruach/pneuma in the Scriptures, as seen by John Levison.
