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.

An important resource for living the real life God intends for us
Ive been a believer for 45 years. Ive rarely read a Christian book that is as challenging as The Forgotten God. This is not an apologetic for Penecostal or non Penecostal belief, but a guide to live the real life of a believer that is made possible by allowing the Holy Spirit to do his work in our lives. This book can bring you to the place where you simply must say yes or no in order to live in the fulness of life God promises us.

it's just not that good
Positively, Francis Chan highlights the need to be Spirit-led. Perhaps that's going to be good for someone. Other than that, the book is just not that good.

He is missing a lot of dangers involved with the spirit world, given that there is a lot of demonic power at work in the charismatic church. When he talks about "surrendering all to the Holy Spirit" and such-like, this can be actually be very dangerous. I would immediately follow this book up with Jessie Penn Lewis' "War on the Saints".

It's commendable that he notes a difference between Biblical Christianity and modern church practice, but one wonders if he might ever feel led by the Holy Spirit to give up his unbiblical pastoral office (there is more biblical justification for snake handling than for the Christian pastorate.) Surely the Holy Spirit could lead His (note, not his) congregation without Francis Chan's prominence, and Francis Chan could stop attempting to exercise giftedness he does not have and repressing others who do have such giftedness from exercising it. (Read Pagan Christianity by Frank Viola if you're curious.)

There just isn't that much enlightenment jumping off the pages here. What if Pastor Chan were called to step off the stage and support some of the "laity" that actually had something Spirit-empowered to say on the topic?

Come Holy Spirit Come! Make us more like Jesus...
Personally having read this I'm excited and longing for the Holy Spirits work in my life, today. I loved hearing Chan reading the words he'd penned, his passion for the message of this book can be heard. Thank you!
