Breakthrough author Francis Chan rips away paper and bows to get at the true source of the church's powerthe Holy Spirit. Chan contends that we've ignored the Spirit for far too long, and we are reaping the disastrous results. Thorough scriptural support and compelling narrative form Chan's invitation to stop and remember the One we've forgotten, the Spirit of the living God.

ronmCanadaAge: Over 65Gender: male5 Stars Out Of 5An easy read with lots of clout!September 7, 2014ronmCanadaAge: Over 65Gender: maleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5As usual, Francis Chan gives a wakeup call that is both timely and stimulating. In an easy to read style he raises some very important issues on how we have dealt (read "neglected") with the Holy Spirit in our worship, church organization and ministry in general. In our culture, which is highly motivated towards success and numbers, we have a tendency to depend on our own abilities and skills to get fast results. Chan calls us back to the birthing and origin of the Church and its full dependence on the Holy Spirit. He is very insightful when he says that our behaviour in some of our services is sometimes more like that of the prophets of Baal on Mount Carmel rather than exhibiting the quiet confidence of Elijah who represented the true God. This book is a must read for every Christian.

Sweet BrownieOntario, CanadaAge: 25-34Gender: female4 Stars Out Of 5Gets you ThinkingNovember 8, 2013Sweet BrownieOntario, CanadaAge: 25-34Gender: femaleQuality: 4Value: 4Meets Expectations: 4I am really enjoying how this book gets you thinking about the Holy Spirit as a person and his role in your life. I thought my view, that the Holy Spirit is a power source to tap into, was Scriptural and correct, but as I continue through this study that is being challenged from all angles. They say that ignorance is bliss, but I am so happy to be learning and stepping into living a Spirit filled life. Francis Chan uses analogies that are easy to understand, powerful, and relevant. He asks questions to get you thinking instead of telling you what to think. The whole books is encouraging, and inspiring.

Q: I am not pentecostal nor charismatic. Is this book about the fruits of the Holy Spirit or the indwelling of the Holy Spirit?
This product does not focus on the fruit of the spirit, but on how the Holy Spirit moves and interacts with the Church. The author intended it to be used to help realize the power that the Holy Spirit gives to individuals and the Church. The reader does not need to be Pentecostal or Charismatic to appreciate this book.
