Were ordinary members of the old covenant remnant continually indwelt by the Holy Spirit? The inaugural volume of the NEW AMERICAN COMMENTARY STUDIES IN BIBLE AND THEOLOGY seeks an answer to this question. This new series is geared for pastors, advanced Bible students, and other deeply committed laypersons.

God's Indwelling Presence pursues answers to the following questions: Are regeneration and indwelling the same thing? What do the words indwelling and regeneration mean? What does the Old Testament say about where the Spirit dwelt in relationship to God's people? How does the anointing of Jesus with the Spirit affect our understanding of these questions? If old covenant believers were not indwelt by the Spirit, how did they become and remain faithful to God?

Users will find this an excellent extension of the long-respected NEW AMERICAN COMMENTARY.
