Presented with Seattle Spiritual Synthesis at Seattle First Baptist Church. Seattle Pacific University professor Jack Levison continues his meditations on Christian understandings of the spirit of God in his new book, Inspired: The Holy Spirit and the Mind of Faith (Paraclete Press). “Levison here gives us a brilliant line of argument that is lucidly and almost affectionately delivered — brilliant in that it scintillates with insight after insight and connection after connection, lucid in that Levison writes with the simplicity and directness of genuine authority, and affectionate in that he approaches both his content and us as his readers with the warmest regard… ‘An Agenda for the Future of Pneumatology,’ which serves as the concluding section of Inspired, should be required reading for every thoughtful Christian today.”-Phyllis Tickle. Seattle First Baptist Church is located at 1111 Harvard Avenue (at Seneca). Free/no tickets necessary.
