40 Days with the Holy Spirit will inspire you to encounter God in fresh and surprising ways. Youll develop stronger spiritual muscles as you breathe, read, reflect, and prayall with an eye to cultivating a relationship with the least familiar member of the Trinity. The book is interactive, offering the opportunity to write and pray each day; intelligent, rooted in a rigorous study of Scripture, from Genesis to Revelation; and inviting, with 40 insightful, well-planned 2030 minute daily exercises; and prayerful, with 40 original prayers that capture each days insight into the deep, spiritual work of the Holy Spirit. Jack Levisons lively new book 40 Days with the Holy Spirit is an engaging devotional that invites the Christian community to be reacquainted with the person and ministry of the Holy Spirit. I read it as a Pentecostal pastor/theologian and it provoked me to consider anew how the Spirit is actively at work in my life and in the world. Though there are differences in pneumatology within the body of Christ, all who read this book will have to affirm that the Spirit is moving and Jack has caught its zeal!Johnathan E. Alvarado, Senior Pastor, Grace Church International, and Professor of Theology, Beulah Heights University, Atlanta, Georgia "Jack Levison's new devotional will guide you into the theme of the Holy Spirit in Scripture, aiming for spiritual formation, not just spiritual information. My favorite part: the simple prayers at the end of each reading. A beautiful, accessible, and soul-nourishing resource!" Brian D. McLaren, Author of We Make the Road by Walking Jack Levison combines a scholar's intimate knowledge of scripture with a born writer's mastery of nuance, style, empathy and humor. Every page of this book brims with reverence for God and common-sense wisdom won the hard way. David Laskin, author of The Family 40 Days with the Holy Spirit opens a door for all seekers, religious and irreligious, to experience Gods Spirit-breath within. This is more than a must read-its food for busy and hungry hearts.Dr. Michael Rakes, Pastor at Winston Salem First Is it possible to live a Spirit-filled life amid our daily distractions and demands? Jack Levison assures us it is and offers a path to wisdom through stillness and abandonment This book leads us to the ultimate Source, the Spirit. It is a guide not just for 40 days, but a lifetime. Judith Valente, Correspondent, Religion & Ethics Newsweekly and author of The Art of Pausing Jack Levison brings together scholarship, Scripture meditation, concrete practices, and compelling inspiration. He helps us retrieve the tragically lost centrality of the Holy Spirit in the mainline Christian world. Here comes the return of the fire and the wind! Fr. Richard Rohr, ofm "Jack Levisons book is not an overly intellectual look at the Holy Spirit, but really examines what it means to live a Spirit-filled life. A needed resource for those looking to be guided by the Holy Spirit found in Scripture. Jack opens our minds to the fullness of the Holy Spirit and removes the human limitations that we often place on this person of the Trinity, teaching us to hear and obey as God speaks." Dr. John M. Perkins, Co-founder of the Christian Community Development Association (CCDA), Founder and President Emeritus of the John and Vera Mae Perkins Foundation
Jack Levison holds the W. J. A. Power Chair of Biblical Hebrew and Old Testament Interpretation at Perkins School of Theology, Southern Methodist University and is the most competent scholar and clearest writer on the Holy Spirit that I have known, according to Eugene Peterson. A contributor to parade.com, relevant.com, and beliefnet.com, Jack has written Fresh Air: The Holy Spirit for an Inspired Life to wide acclaim. His writings have been translated into German, Spanish, and Korean.
