Publisher's Description

New York Times-bestselling author Francis Chan offers a compelling invitation to understand, embrace, and follow the Holy Spirit’s direction in our lives.
 
What if the thing our churches are missing isn’t a something, but a Someone? Francis Chan’s Forgotten God seeks to reverse our neglect of the Holy Spirit by exposing the enormous gap between what Scripture says about the Spirit and how most believers and churches operate today.
 
Through solid scriptural support and compelling narrative, Chan reveals the Holy Spirit as the Bible describes Him. His goal isn’t merely to educate readers—it’s to infuse reader’s lives with the presence of the Holy Spirit in profound ways.

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.
