When faced with the realities of a hurting world as a first responder-EMT, Leon Fontaine developed a passion for seeing Gods miraculous power at work--not only at the altar--but also in the back of his ambulance.

And you want to live your life in a way that attracts people to the Jesus you know and love. Using real-life examples, Leon demonstrates how you can access Gods supernatural power without compromise, and do it in a way that draws others to Christ.
If this sounds good, hang on, because youre in for the adventure of your life! This transformational shift wont just change you. It will change the world around you.

"I am thrilled about your new book, The Spirit Contemporary Life. Spirit Contemporary brings together both power and practices to engage our constantly changing culture for the cause of Christ. It has been said, We dont get to choose the culture we are called to reach for Christ. We get to choose how we are going to engage it. For example, there was a time when the European and North American church played home games. Yet today, most of the time, the church in these regions plays away games. We can either continue down this path of misconnect or move to Spirit Contemporary and witness firsthand more coming to Christ than ever before."
James O. Davis, president of Cutting Edge International and co-founder of Billion Soul Network
"I believe The Spirit Contemporary Life has the potential to become the next Azusa Street, moving us forward in the winning of our world to Christ through the power of the Holy Spirit. Just as it takes two wings for a bird to fly, it takes two wings for a church or organization to soar. Just as one wing is program, the other wing is power. When it comes to this book, one wing is Spirit and the other is Contemporary. When Spirit and Contemporary are synergized together, phenomenal outcomes will happen in the church. I believe this valuable resource will help the church go to higher levels of impact and influence in the years ahead."
Dr. Elmer L. Towns, co-founder of Liberty University
"This timely book shines a light on a truly important concept: the gifts of the Spirit can and should be better adapted to our modern-day culture and powerfully utilized by each and every one of us in our daily lives to minister to those around us. If we dare to adopt this mind-set, we will be more effective, attractive, and culturally relevant. Leons dramatic personal journey as a former EMT gives testimony to the fact that a Spirit Contemporary life is an exciting, miraculous, and fulfilling way to live."
Matt Crouch, chairman of the board of Trinity Broadcasting Family of Networks (TBN)
"Leon Fontaine has helped countless leaders in our nation and beyond. His life-giving insights have empowered them to effectively present the timeless message of Gods love and power to an ever-changing world. Thankfully, those principles are now in print, and an exciting adventure awaits those who embrace the challenge clearly articulated in this book."
Wayne Alcorn, national president of Australian Christian Churches
"I love it when someone can take the complex and make it simple. Pastor Leon Fontaine has put two wordsSpirit and Contemporarytogether to create a brand new paradigm of living the daily life we were meant to live. In The Spirit Contemporary Life Leon has broken down the walls between these two words that connote differences and joined them to free us up to live with and for Jesus every day, everywhere, all the time."
Sam Chand, leadership consultant and author of Leadership Pain; president emeritus, Beulah Heights Bible College
"This is the most inspiring book on evangelism, power ministry, and the authenticity of Spirit-led life I have ever read. With numerous personal illustrations, Leon Fontaine takes us into the daily experience of living the life described in the New Testament gospels and letters. Solidly rooted in Scripture, Fontaine helps us explore what it means to live a Spirit Contemporary life personally and corporately as the body of Christ. This is not another book about relevance; this is a book inviting us to live fully in Holy Spirits presence."
Doug Beacham, presiding bishop of the International Pentecostal Holiness Church
