This is the second book I've read by Jack Levison. The first, Fresh Air, was also about the Holy Spirit. I find it difficult to find good books about the Holy Spirit. This one, a 40-day devotional, is a good one. I've looked forward to reading it each day which is not something I can say about every devotional I've picked up. The author comes at this from a number of fresh ways. Recommended. ...more

Active reading for believing Christians.

Levison's devotional falls under the umbrella of "books you do" rather than read passively. Designed for the titular 40-day period (40 being a thing throughout Christendom), each day brings a scripture reading, an essay from Levison, a journal prompt, and a prayer. The unifying theme is the titular Holy Spirit (points for truth in advertising), and on the whole, is a nice guide to anyone who wants to learn a bit more about it.

Filled with the Holy Spirit

I was trying to understand the Holy Spirit, and I wanted to deepen my connection with the Holy Spirit.This book has just done that and I am so grateful. The prayers in this book are from the soul. I want to pray more and pray these beautiful verses again and again. Thanks so much.

A few years ago I read Jack Levison's Fresh Air: The Holy Spirit for the Inspired Life. I wrote a gushing review of it. My enthusiasm for that book was due in part to the way Levison unfolded the mystery of the Spirit's presence in scripture in a number of ways, and connected it to everyday life. While my previous run-ins with the Holy Spirit focused on his role in convicting us for sin, empowering us for mission, and ecstatic experience, Levison helped me enlarge my frame to see how the Spirit ...more

We are people of the Spirit. That has been a central theme for Christians since the day of Pentecost. What that means in practice is a different story. For some it means exuberance. For others it means that no matter where we go, God is with us.

Jacke Levison is a biblical scholar who has focused his attention on the Spirit in a number of books. He may focus his teaching on the Hebrew Bible, but it is the Spirit that he is drawn to as a writer. Having read a number of his pieces, I was when Para
