"First Friday" Freebie: Forgotten God by Francis Chan (5/4)

[UPDATE: This contest is now closed. The winner will be notified by email.]

We’re starting something new here at the Blue Letter Bible blog, and I think you’ll be excited about it.

On the first Friday of every month, we will host a giveaway for one book. The books will be carefully chosen from our bookstore and are recommended for Christian growth and edification.

Our first giveaway will be Forgotten God: Reversing Our Tragic Neglect of the Holy Spirit by Francis Chan. I would describe this wonderful read as a sort of “Practical Theology of the Holy Spirit”; it uses Scripture to remind us Who the Holy Spirit is and shows how He works practically in the believer’s life.

Book Description:

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.
