Have you ever watched "holy roller" preachers on television and felt like they were hosts of a party to which you weren't invited? Or, if you were invited, would you want to be? Light Your Church on Fire Without Burning It Down is a unique guidebook for "normal" Christians who are curious about the whole "Holy Spirit thing." Using easy-to-understand, non-Pentecostal language, pastor David Housholder ushers readers through the Pentecostal faith, a world of encounter and supernatural-oriented Christianity. By sharing his own story of growing up in a traditional Lutheran environment, his first personal experiences with Pentecostal Christianity, and his embracing of these two worlds, he skillfully bridges the gap between Pentecostal and mainstream camps to improve their understanding of each other. This engaging, boundary-breaking volume will reveal how you, too, can fully experience the person and work of the Holy Spirit.

David Housholder was born in Idaho and raised in a traditional Lutheran church environment. He came into direct contact with Pentecostal Christianity while church planting in rural Washington State, and has been traveling the world and teaching on both sides of the Pentecostal/mainstream "spiritual fence" ever since. He earned his Master of Divinity at Chicago's Lutheran School of Theology and was a Fulbright scholar in New Testament at the University of Bonn, Germany. A pastor of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America and the Alliance of Renewal Churches, he is an international conference speaker and author of the Galatians portion of Augsburg/Fortress Book of Faith series (2009). Today he lives in Huntington Beach, California, where he works as a church planter at Robinwood Church and surfs the waves with his friends on most days. David and his wife, Wendy, have one son, Lars.
