Forgotten God

Reversing Our Tragic Neglect of the Holy Spirit

This book can be downloaded and read in Apple Books on your Mac or iOS device.

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.
 

From Publishers Weekly

Sep 14, 2009 – 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.

Really good

Everyone should read this and live it!

Forgotten God

During my reading of this book I felt a deep desire to re-evaluate my relationship with the Holy Spirit in my life. I was totality convicted of my total lack of obedience to God through the Holy Spirit. This book has changed my life for the better. Thanks for writing this useful book. I'm going to suggest using this book in my bible study group.

AWESOME.

I have just started this book, and can't put it down. The truth in it pulls me to read more. This is something I truly needed :) THANK YOU!
