9781612610689: Fresh Air: The Holy Spirit for an Inspired Life

Lively, wise, profound, and winsome, this refreshing new book takes the Holy Spirit from the mountaintop to the grit of everyday life by showing us that the Holy Spirit is not just about speaking in tongues, spiritual gifts or "fruits"--but also about our deepest breath and our highest aspirations. Provocative and life-changing, Fresh Air blends moving personal stories, rich biblical studies, and practical strategies for experiencing the daily presence of the Holy Spirit where we least expect it--in human breathing, in social transformation, in community, in hostile situations, and in serious learning. Small wonder that Scot McKnight calls Fresh Air "the most biblical, wide-ranging, innovative, and refreshing book on the Holy Spirit in years," and Eugene Peterson calls it "a rare and remarkable achievement."

From the Back Cover:

"Fresh Air offers careful examination of the Holy Spirit, all tangled up with a wide wonder."--Nichole Nordeman

"People told me Jack Levison was a great teacher, and when I read this book I realized why. His excitement is infectious; he tells a great story; he sets little-known biblical passages on fire and drills down to unimagined depths in well-known ones. He has a boyish enthusiasm, but his account of the holy spirit - and what the spirit can do for whole churches, not just individuals! - is mature, seasoned, challenging and wise. His scholarship is spot on, his human warmth and Christian compassion are everywhere. An unbeatable combination." --N. T. Wright

"Jack Levison's book is the most biblical, wide-ranging, innovative, and refreshing book on the Holy Spirit in years. The Spirit is here de-programmed and set loose. You may be surprised in every chapter, I know I was." --Scot McKnight

"Fresh Air is, well, a breath of fresh air. Jack Levison fuses an accurate but unpretentious examination of the Holy Spirit in Scripture with a lively and generous style that invites the entire Christian community, regardless of label, to embrace God's Spirit in the everyday ordinariness of life." --Eugene Peterson

"Fresh Air is exactly what its title promises: a lively, fresh study of the theology of the Holy Spirit by  a brilliant and spirited theologian. If there is such a thing as poignant Christian midrash, then this surely is it." --Phyllis Tickle

"I've often asked pastors, 'Who is the most neglected person of the Trinity?'  They always answer, 'The Holy Spirit.'  In this lively and--well--Spirit-filled book, Jack Levison enjoys the exploits of the Holy Spirit throughout scripture, provoking a fresh encounter with God.   Jack is uniquely qualified to lead us, combining his scholarly understanding of scripture with his deep affection for the church, both mainline and Pentecostal.  No one will think about the Holy Spirit in the same way after reading Jack's book."--Will Willimon

About the Author:

Jack Levison teaches at Seattle Pacific University. The author of many books and articles, he has won major national and international awards for his scholarship. Scot McKnight, author of The Jesus Creed, called Levison’s Filled with the Spirit “the benchmark and starting point for all future studies of the Spirit,” and Walter Brueggemann hailed it as “inspired.”
