Publisher's Summary

The author of the best-selling 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 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.

Great Book

This was such a great book, it made me look inward and want the Holy Spirit to guide me through this world. I was saddened that it ended and was wanting the book to continue. It has open my will to hear God and want to sit and hear him, actually listen.

Great book, poor presentation

This is a great read. Francis, as usual, has focused on the true power of God, the Holy Spirit. The reader barely pauses long enough for a breath. He barrels through each thought without giving the listener time to think about the concept that Francis is trying to get the reader to consider. This is unfortunate as it severely diminishes the thoughts and ideas that Francis is trying to convey.

Challenging

Forgotten God challenges you. The depth of knowledge of the author and the realistic approach is refreshing. The last couple chapters raise the bar for any Christian. I recommend this book without reservation.

Buckle up

I thought this would teach about the Holy Spirit. It is so much more. This book will wake up the power of Holy Spirit in you and move you to live a life a love. I was barely crawling on my own strength in my walk. Now, I’m in the driver seat of a Ferrari and am ready to go boldly where God is taking me.
