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.

    I read this using the kindle app and now face the dilemma of wanting a bound copy. Back in my early education days I took a class on the Holy Spirit and have always been convinced that we often neglec...

    This title fits nicely into a category I would call ‚ÄúVernacular Theology‚ÄĚ because, while it isn‚Äôt up to the level of academic or even advanced lay-level theological writing, it isn‚Äôt exactly m...

    In Forgotten God Chan invites his reader to take a deeper look into one's understanding of the Holy Spirit, the seemingly "forgotten" part of the Trinity. It appears a more apt description may be "ign...

    I thought this book was pretty easy and enjoyable to read. It wasn't an especially deep discussion or study of the Holy Spirit, but I am still glad to have read it.I think Chan had two main points tha...

    This is about the third Francis Chan book I’ve read, and it’s pretty typical of the others: very quick, very friendly, a little scattered, not quite approaching the topic in the way I’d like. Th...
