Eugene Peterson calls Jack Levison the clearest writer on the Holy Spirit that I have known.' In this book Levison speaks a fresh prophetic word to the church, championing a unique blend of serious Bible study and Christian spirituality.With rich insight, he shows Christians of any church or denomination how they can take the Spirit into the grit of everyday life. Levison argues for an indispensable synergy between spontaneity and study, ecstasy and restraint, inspiration and interpretation.Readable and relevant, winsome and wise, Levison's Inspired sets a bold agenda for today's church that will replace quick-fix spiritualities with a vibrant, durable experience of the Holy Spirit.
