I read Francis Chan's last book, "Crazy Love", and it changed my life. So much so, that I bought 10 copies for my friends.
So when this book came out, and saw all the great reviews on Amazon, I was eager to read it. I commute an hour to work each way, so audiobooks are great. This book really helped me to perceive the Holy Spirit, not as some little ghost friend that helps you out here and there, but GOD's true, powerful spirit, living in me. It once again put me back in awe of my creator, humbled me, and changed my life in a biblical way.
Chan never ceases to amaze me with his writing and speeches, and this book did not disappoint. Amazing! Thank you Francis for helping me to learn to see my Heavenly Father more clearly!

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?
This is an excellent companion to the book of Acts, which starts with Christ telling his followers to gather together, to wait, and then receive
What does Francis Chan bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?
Some people are great writers, some are great speakers, and some people do not read out loud what they write. Some things will always be labor intensive to read, even things that hold our interest. Those things that represent a passion that is beyond verbal expression can lose that passion in print. Francis Chan covers the emotional spectrum in this book. It is more of a 3-D narrative - not with pictures and such, but with reason, feeling and passion. I might get the paper version to mark up and take notes in, but the written words will not hold the same energy and passion the spoken word brings to this very important subject.
Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?
God desperately wants to have a relationship with me. And you. This book made me look at the purpose behind my prayer time. God knows what I want, fear, hope for. By regaining focus on God, the Holy Spirit is sharing what God wants to do through me. I have laughed at the joy of realizing this, and cried over the wasted time spent wondering why I wasn't
Any additional comments?
God wants me to know Him. God who made everything, wants me to know Him. He gave His son, Jesus, to bring salvation by satisfying the Wrath of God earned by our sin; He gave the Holy Spirit to let us know Him personally... the veil no longer exits between man and God. This book will help you put Acts into perspective, and will put acts in your life, that glorify God the Father.

This is all the more powerful as Francis himself reads his words so passionately. I am encouraged that God gives us his spirit and challenged that I’m living in a way that I don’t rely on him. Don’t read this if you are looking for comfortable Christianity.
