Jack is an internationally recognized scholar, whose books have received wide acclaim. Scot McKnight, author of The Jesus Creed, characterized Filled with the Spirit as “the benchmark and starting point for all future studies of the Spirit.” Walter Brueggemann hailed it as “inspired.” Eugene Peterson called Fresh Air: the Holy Spirit for an Inspired Life “a rare and remarkable achievement.” Phyllis Tickle calls him “a brilliant and spirited theologian,” and N. T. Wright notes that Jack’s “account of the holy spirit–and what the spirit can do for whole churches, not just individuals!–is mature, seasoned, challenging, and wise.”

 

The Holy Spirit 101 Lecture Series

 

17 words into the Bible, the Spirit of God hovers over a murky chaos. 113 words from the end of the Bible, the Spirit invites everyone who is thirsty to drink for free. At the start and finish of the Bible—Genesis 1:2 and Revelation 22:17—the Spirit is there, bringing order to chaos and satisfaction to people with parched throats. From beginning to end, the Spirit is active, yet we know so little about the Spirit of God. Not any more! Spend some time in the presence of the Spirit—studying, questioning, wondering, learning. With our Bibles in hand, we will explore the unknown but not unknowable world of the Spirit
