Eugene Peterson calls Jack Levison “the clearest writer on the Holy Spirit that I have known.” In this book, Levison speaks a fresh prophetic word to the church, championing a unique blend of serious Bible study and Christian spirituality. With rich insight, he shows Christians of any church or denomination how they can take the Spirit into the grit of everyday life. Levison argues for an indispensable synergy between spontaneity and study, ecstasy and restraint, inspiration and interpretation. Readable and relevant, winsome and wise, Levison’s Inspired sets a bold agenda for today’s church that will replace quick-fix spiritualities with a vibrant, durable experience of the Holy Spirit.

This book on the place of the Holy Spirit in the church and the Christian life is a tour de force. Jack Levison is, in my experience, the most competent scholar and clearest writer on the Holy Spirit that I have known. But he is far more than a scholar; he is a Christian who is passionate to bring biblical clarity and understanding to the church worldwide. . . . I have been on the lookout for colleagues like this as I have worked to counter the dichotomizing of the church over Holy Spirit issues. Levison has become for me the major voice, thoroughly scriptural and non-combative, in this company.

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. Beyond all that, ‘An Agenda for the Future of Pneumatology,’ which serves as the concluding section of Inspired, should be required reading for every thoughtful Christian today.

Jack Levison probably considers himself neither a prophet nor the son of one. Yet he does what prophets do—identify the presence and activity of the spirit of God in the world and then discern with remarkable clarity the implications such work can and should have for our future. Inspired, aptly titled, will not only inform readers about the spirit but activate, nurture, and enable a spirit-filled way of life, learning, and virtue.
