For years this book just sat on my bookshelf collecting dust, but when I finally picked it up and read it I instantly regretted not picking it up sooner. Wow!!! This book was revolutionary to me and my thinking of/on the Holy Spirit. So much so, that I bought some for our local Bible Study group. It has been amazing to watch them grow and have their eyes open to things that they've never considered before.
This is a very easy read, though for some people it may be a little heavy, and is full of some wonderful insight about the Holy Spirit. I especially love that the author doesn't come at the theology of the Holy Spirit from a denominational point of view, but from the view of what the Scriptures say.
This is a worth while book to get and have within your library!!!
We bought this ebook for a Bible Study at our church. In looking it up before we purchased we were hesitant to buy but we decided to go ahead with the class. The underlying exegesis is lacking. Things seem to picked out of here and there and throw together into a book and Study Guide. It also seems to foster the notion that people are afraid of the Holy Spirit or some such. It is confusing and it is hard to grasp what the author is really trying to say about the Holy Spirit.
This is an anointed book and should be required reading for every Christian regardless of your background and experience. Francis Chan emphasizes the great need of the Holy Spirit in our lives and in the church. We have drifted so far from the Holy Spirit we read about in the first century church. What we have come to accept as the 'Normal Christian Life' today doesn't measure up to the 'Normal Christian Life' of the first century church in the book of Acts. For the most part, we have shut the Holy Spirit out of our lives and out of the church. Great Book!
Francis Chan is a great author. He writes in such a way that you feel like you are sitting down and having a conversation over a cup of coffee. He shares the truths of the gospel, in such a way that you understand, agree and learn from him all at the same time. Love all his books and his videos are great too!
