Publisher's Description

In the name of the Father, the Son, and ... the Holy Spirit. We pray in the name of all three, but how often do we live with an awareness of only the first two? As Jesus ascended into heaven, He promised to send the Holy Spirit—the Helper—so that we could be true and living witnesses for Christ. Unfortunately, today's church has admired the gift but neglected to open it.

Breakthrough author Francis Chan rips away paper and bows to get at the true source of the church's power—the 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.

Author Bio

A pastor and church planter based in San Franciso, Francis Chan speaks to tens of thousands of people around the world every year. Known for his passionate, biblical style, Chan is on the board of World Impace and is the author of Forgotten God, Erasing Hell, and Crazy Love, which has sold nearly two million copies.

Publisher's Weekly

The author of the bestselling Crazy Love pleads passionately for the church to live by the power of the forgotten God: the Holy Spirit. Calling Christians to more than just a better life, Chan says he wants to live a life unexplainable without the Holy Spirit, so dependent on the Spirit that, he says, “if he doesn't come through, I'm screwed.” He offers vivid personal stories and illustrations about how the church ought to help Christians discern the powerful gifts of the Spirit, rather than toning down radicals. Biographies of people “keeping in step with the Spirit” conclude each chapter. Not a comprehensive study but intended for application, it consequently lacks depth of context in most Bible references. Ultimately, though, this serves Chan's aim to end ceaseless talk and follow God's lead to assist the poor, the abused and anyone without hope. Chan himself has given all royalties from Crazy Love to a ministry to children trapped in sex trafficking, explaining that God said to him, “I want you to love them as your own children.” Chan's voice is fresh, earthy and fiery.

    As 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.

    I 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.

    Yes we all say "The Father, Son and Holy Spirit", but how many of us really embrace it? This book really hit home for me.

    Francis Chan is always excellent in his God and Spiritual writings. Forgotten God makes you think hard about things that you do, say or think to suppress the Holy Spirit.

    Excellent book.
