Forgotten God

(review by Julie)
My rating: 5 out of 5 stars)

I got hooked on Francis Chan's books after reading Crazy Love several years ago (which was also a great book!). He's so authentic and tells you exactly what's on his heart.  I was reading Crazy Love with a group and we watched his video clips to go with the book. Since then I've seen a few other videos of Chan, and they have all been so raw and real. Now, whenever I read something he wrote, I see his facial expressions and hear his voice in my mind.

In Forgotten God; Reversing Our Tragic Neglect of the Holy Spirit, Chan once again lays it all out there. He lays out principles regarding the theology surrounding the Holy Spirit (which many of us haven't spent much time thinking about before), what a relationship with the Holy Spirit looks like, and then he imagines what the church would look like if we all got real and lived by the Spirit.  I highly recommend this book! It broke my heart and inspired me to go deeper with the Holy Spirit.
