POWERFULWhen is the last time someone used that word to describe you?It doesn't make sense that Almighty God would have children characterized by fear and insecurity. He put His Spirit in us so we could be known for our power (Acts 1:8; 2 Timothy 1:7). Sadly, most believers and churches are known for talent or intellect rather than supernatural power. What's worse is that we're okay with it.Could it be that we've forgotten the One who distinguishes us from every religion and cult in the world?Through scriptural support and compelling narrative, breakthrough author Francis Chan reminds us of the Holy Spirit as the Bible describes Him. He reminds us that we were not created and saved merely to survive our time on earth. Chan contends that we've ignored the Spirit and are reaping the disastrous results.It's time for the beloved church of Jesus Christ to reverse the trend of neglect. Let's pursue the Spirit-filled life of effectiveness God desires and we desire.

Reading with his own voice !!! Am looking forward to as spiritual change! An adventure with the Holy Spirit ! Thank you Pastor Chan!
If you long to read a book that will show you how to get more peace, joy, love, self control and the other fruit of the spirit, and the Bible is just not speaking to you as you know it could be---this book might just be the catalyst you need to show you how to live the life God wants you to experience.
If that scares you a bit, then you really do need to absorb what Francis Chan is teaching in this heart-filled message.
That said, the book does ask some good questions that forced me to think about things I probably wouldn't have addressed without going through the book. It addresses the modern state of belief in the Holy Spirit and where it should stand in our beliefs. That's really the book summed up into a sentence. The book is an easy read, as books like this tend to be, and goes quickly.
One thing I would recommend would be to read this book as part of a study with a group of people. While book does a good job of challenging your beliefs on the Holy Spirit and inspiring you to think about it in a new way, the concepts are abstract enough that without someone else to really hold you to putting what you've through about into action it probably won't happen. I walked away without any kind of real change in direction or beliefs, but it made me think about them quite a bit. Without people to hold me to continue processing what I'd read it would have been easy enough to read the book, think about it, and simply walk away without changing anything about myself as esoteric books tend to lend themselves to.
The book didn't make a better person. It didn't change my beliefs. But it did make me think long and hard about my beliefs. If you're interested in finding a book to provide a framework for thinking about the Holy Spirit and provide a basic roadmap this would be a book I could recommend to anyone.
