Book Shelf: Forgotten God


Forgotten God:
Reversing Our Tragic Neglect of the Holy Spirit

Francis Chan (Author)
Published by David C. Cook
New edition (September 1, 2009)

My review: 5 out of 5 stars
In Forgotten God, Francis Chan discusses the mystery and importance of the Holy Spirit from a place of great reverence and humility. His servant heart brings forth a book full of approachable stories and illustrations, yet crystal clear in Biblical truth and classic Christian theology. His engaging style invites you into a conversation. You leave challenged but not condemned. Great for persons at all points in their journey of faith.

From the publisher:
A follow up to the profound message of Crazy Love, Pastor Francis Chan offers a compelling invitation to understand, embrace, and follow the Holy Spirit’s direction in our lives.

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.
