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.

Chan rips away the paper and bows to get at the true source of the church’s power: the Holy Spirit. He contends that we’ve ignored the Spirit for far too long, and we are reaping the disastrous results. Thorough scriptural support and a compelling narrative form Chan’s invitation to stop and remember the One we’ve forgotten, the Spirit of the living God.

We were not created and saved merely to survive our time on earth. 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.

    " Really good! Got me thinking! Recommended! Defiantly going to read Crazy Love now! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Dylan | 2/5/2014

    " Though a wonderful speaker, I do not consider Francis Chan a great writer. At all. I was pretty bored with this one but finished it simply because I needed to pass the time on a plane. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Melanie | 1/28/2014

    " It's a good read for those who know nothing about the Holy Spirit and are interested in Knowing Him. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Joseph | 1/25/2014

    " I almost never give books 5-stars, but this one is well worthy of it. It is a very much needed wake up call to the body of Christ. Many need to heed Chan's advice, and even those that do (I like to believe I largely do) are well-advised to read it, both to be encouraged and to be reminded of how important turning to God in all things really is. A must read for any believer in Jesus. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 William Norvell | 1/19/2014

    " What great insights. He truly goes to the heart of the gospel and reminds us that Jesus Christ himself said that he wanted to send the Holy Spirit because it was better than having him here. The Son of God sent us this precious gift and we so often neglect it. Francis points this out beautifully and shows us how to get it back into our lives. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jodi | 1/4/2014

    " Read it for yourself. It's not about my thoughts or feelings. This is about your life and your response. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Brad Epperson | 12/26/2013

    " Challenging and uncomfortable. If taken seriously this book will seriously challenge our approach to how we view and interact with the HS. "

    " dramatically changed my prayer life. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Coyle | 12/20/2012

    " A great practical devotional concerning the Holy Spirit. Chan ignores theological speculation (for that, see John Owen's The Holy Spirit or Kuyper's The Work of the Holy Spirit) and focuses instead on how we have ignored the Holy Spirit both in our individual lives and in the life of the church. "

    " I stopped about halfway through after realizing that I was skimming over whole pages to see if the book was headed anywhere. I had looked forward to reading Forgotten God even though I had found Crazy Love: Overwhelmed by a Relentless God disappointing. If anything, Forgotten God was even weaker. "

    " Loving what I've read so far. Lots to quote! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jonathan | 3/18/2011

    " One of the best books I've read in years. I very much recommend this insightful, at times profound, and deeply challenging book. As the author clearly sets forth, the greatest impact of the knowledge presented in its pages will be the incorporation of its truth in your life. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Rob | 3/14/2011

    " i wish that "it was ok" was 3 stars instead of 2 stars! but this is the ratings system i have to work with, so 2 stars it is. "
