Tricia Gates Brown employs the methodology of socio-scientific biblical criticism to investigate the pneumatology of John and 1 John. She argues that the meaning of spirit in John and 1 John is best understood using the anthropological model of brokerage. The model of patronage and its relevance to the socio-cultural world of JohnGCOs gospel is also discussed. Spirit in the Writings of John examines the development in pneumatology between John and 1 John and analyzes what this suggests about the socio-cultural context of the Johannine community. There is a discussion of the meaning of the term paracletos in literature antedating John, and the dominant view that the word was a formal forensic term is challenged.

MEDIA REVIEWS
Brown s study is the first major attempt to apply patron-client categories to Johannine pneumatology. this remarkable, ground-breaking study is a must for scholars of John s pneumatology. The Catholic Biblical Quarterly, 67, 2005
'stimulating discussions that make for a lively reading experience.'--Andreas J. Kostenberger, Themelios "Themelios "
'...a welcome contribution to the ongoing dialogue of Johannine pneumatology and a valuable addition to the methodological debate. Her socio-scientific arguments are well researched and her exegesis is well presented...a valuable piece of Johannine scholarship.' Volume 27, Number 1, Spring 2005--Sanford Lakoff "Pneuma: A Journal Of The Society For Pentecostal Studies "
'Brown's argument makes sense of a number of difficult spirit sayings in the Gospel...[the] book extends recent social-scientific studies on the Fourth Gospel and benefits the discussion of Johannine Pneumatology.'--Sanford Lakoff "Biblical Theology Bulletin "
