From the Back Cover
"A book onsupernatural living is something one expects from a charismatic or Pentecostalpreacher, not a Gospel Coalition blogger.But this is what makes Jared C. Wilson's effort to convey theother-worldly power of the Holy Spirit so intriguing, infectious. Make no mistake, our God is asupernatural being who works supernaturally."
-- Kyle Idleman, pastor and author of not a fan and Grace is Greater
"In his book Supernatural Power for Everyday People,Jared C. Wilson points out that the Holy Spirit is not just someone who simplycounsels and comforts, but rather our God who convicts and guides. He is theone with the supernatural power to affect our heart, strengthen our resolve andlead us to action. Whether associated with the holy rollers or one of thefrozen chosen, or neither, we all need to embrace this book."
-- Mike Cosper, author of Recapturing the Wonder
"Words like 'supernatural power' and 'Holy Spirit' in our current cultural and religious moment, have been wielded and to some extent hijacked bypastors with big personalities and big money. Jared brings them backhere...and brings us back here to a simple, biblical, no-fluff look at the supernatural power that changes ordinary people like you and me. As I read, I found myself worshiping. I found myself craving the Spirit more than his miracles. Get this book. No gimmicks, snakes, or golddust here -- just real power for real people."
-- Matt Papa, songwriter, recording artist, and worship leader
"Many of uswonder how our God is supposed to supernaturally work in our lives, but we areoften confused by the mixed messages we hear in various Christian communities. JaredC. Wilson does well to convey how God supernatural acts, if we merely submit tohis will."
-- Caleb Kaltenbach, pastor and author of Messy Grace
"The word supernaturalis often mistaken and misused in Christian circles. But in Supernatural Power for Everyday People, Wilson corrects themisnomers and rights the mistakes by revealing the supernatural being Godreveals himself to be. The Bible is full of supernatural events and experiencesthat we should embrace and enjoy. Let's live it."
-- Greg Gilbert, author of What is the Gospel? and FAVOR

"There is justno way Jared C. Wilson--or anybody else--can speak with so much truth and graceas in these pages except by the power of the Holy Spirit. I found myselfconfronted and comforted time and time again while reading and desiring to livelife more supernaturally and less dependent on my little strength and emptyknowledge. I can't wait to share the life-giving truths of this book with mychurch."
-- Jairo Namnún, executive director of The Gospel Coalition, Spanish
"Tired of sloggingthrough your spiritual journey, back bent and jaw clenched? Yeah, me too.That's why I found Jared C. Wilson's latest book so refreshing. Jaredreintroduces readers to the Holy Spirit, exposing the shenanigans perpetratedin his name, while also showing how the Spirit's power is available to everybeliever for everyday life. If you're hoping for some esoteric knowledge thatwill elevate you to an elite spiritual status, you'll be disappointed. Jaredargues that the Spirit's work isn't spooky or secretive. It's to glorify Jesusand drive us deeper into the heart of the gospel. It's there we find the powerwe need to live a fruitful, joyful Christian life."
-- Drew Dyck, editor at Moody publishers and author of Yawning at Tigers
"Jared C. Wilson's gritty, downto earth writing style endears itself to gritty, down to earth disciples--whichis perfect, because that is where most of us find ourselves. I eagerly readthis as a means to minister better to others, but suddenly found myselfexposed, not only by Jared's Biblical and pastorally shaped insight, but moreimportantly, by the living and active ministry of the Spirit. On this topic,this has become my new 'go-to' recommendation for everyday followers of Jesuswho desire to walk in step with the Spirit."
-- Chris Thomas, teaching pastor at Raymond Terrace Community Church,Australia
"This is a book that will help people understand who the Spirit is andde-mystify a lot of confusion. Jared's trustworthy writing is warm,relatable, and accessible. I would recommend Supernatural Power for Everyday People to anyone wanting to know how to live in step with the Spirit as they follow the way of Jesus."
-- Lucas Parks, lead pastor of Village Church Belfast and director of Acts 29 Northern Ireland
"If you've ever thought 'there's something missing in my Christian life',then this is the book for you, for it shows us again that there reallyis nothing missing, except maybe the ongoing awareness of all that Godhas provided for us in and through the person and work of his Spirit."
-- Pete Greasley, pastor of Christchurch Newport, Wales
"In a generation that has been fed lots of content but who often lackspower, all of us need to recognize that we truly need to embrace thesupernatural power of the Spirit. Jared Wilson's book givescareful attention to God's character and how he demonstrates that the means of his grace to us are supernatural in and of themselves."
