Overview

n the Bible, the Holy Spirit staggers us with its unexpectedness. The Holy Spirit is not just about speaking in tongues, spiritual gifts or “fruits”—but also about our deepest breath and our highest human aspirations. Popular teacher Jack Levison brings a scholar’s knowledge of this complicated biblical topic to a wide audience that crosses all denominational boundaries. His new book aims to do nothing less than clarify 2,000 years of confusion on the topic of who the Holy Spirit is, and why it matters. Provocative and life-changing, Fresh Air combines moving personal anecdotes, rich biblical studies, and practical strategies for experiencing the daily presence of the Holy Spirit. In brief chapters, the book finds the 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. Fresh Air will unsettle and invigorate readers poised for a fresh experience of an ancient, confusing topic.

Some revolutionary & radical views on the holy spirit based on sound & thorough biblical scripture. Goes thru OT then NT scripture discussing Spirit, how it works, development of our understanding & misunderstandings of Spirit. A lot of things that didn't make sense to me b4 were explained. As a result gained much better understanding of Holy Spirit personhood, how Spirit works & how I can become spirit filled. Had to read some parts over & over because it was just mind blowing! Wow, he really knows the Bible!
