Book Review: Forgotten God

The Forgotten God: Reversing Our Tragic Neglect of the Holy Spirit The Forgotten God: Reversing Our Tragic Neglect of the Holy Spirit by Francis Chan


My rating: 5 of 5 stars
this book got substantially better as i read it. i made a note on page 74 - when Chan begins to breakdown and dissect the active work of the Holy Spirit - and i took many more notes from then on til the end.

Forgotten God is a book about the one forgotten or neglected aspect of God in the western church: the Holy Spirit. it was a book that i didn't realize i needed to read until i started reading it. it really opened my eyes to a vital, living part of the Godhead that i've obviously known about but have rarely even thought about connecting with.

Chan isn't pointing out anything i haven't already heard or read - but at least he is writing about it... he seems to have his finger on the pulse of the church in America... a church that largely has neglected the Holy Spirit and all that it does and can do in our lives.

Seriously, the second half of this book is tremendously good. (good seems to be a weak adjective - but it's true). i am excited now after reading it.
