'This book contains five very accessible and useful essays about the Christian feast of Pentecost, written by an important Scripture scholar. Father Brown explores the historical context of the events of the coming of the Holy Spirit to the newly formed Christians, deeply imbedding his ideas in the study of the New Testament books of Acts and John. The reader will gain an expanded understanding of the beginning of the Christian church through Dr. Brown's writings. They always contain thought provoking scholarship, and this volume is another stimulating sampling of his fine mind.' -- M. Coffin
