Forgotten GodBarry Vendy, via The Good Book Stall
“From my perspective,” writes Francis Chan, “the Holy Spirit is tragically neglected and, for all practical purposes, forgotten.” So he sets out in this book to convey truths about the Spirit that are “obvious, neglected and crucial” and to draw the reader into “deeper communion with the Spirit and greater experience of his power and presence in your life.” He encourages us to “listen to and obey the Spirit’s leading in your own life.” By his own admission, Chan doesn’t set out to write a ‘scholarly theological’ volume. The chapter he does devote to the ‘theology of the Holy Spirit’ contains no surprises, but it helpfully unpacks biblical teaching on the Spirit. After each of the 7 chapters comes a biography, designed to challenge and inspire us, sometimes featuring a famous Christian (Joni Eareckson Tada and Francis Schaeffer), more often a less well-known one. The last of the seven is actually about the reader. “What would be written here?” muses Chan. Well, ask God, we read, to “have his Spirit work so mightily in you that it would make for an amazing biography”! Sometimes books on this kind of subject proclaim an extremist theology, and leave me wallowing in guilt and a sense of failure or punch-drunk under a bombardment of miracle stories from a self-promoting author who seems to have all the answers. But this one didn’t, and I could read it without those unpleasant side effects. I appreciated that.
