      When I picked up Fresh Air: The Holy Spirit For an Inspired Life and saw endorsments from N.T. Wright, Eugene Peterson, Walter Brueggemann, Scot McKnight, William Willimon and Phillyis Tickle I g0t excited. I am always on the hunt for a good book on the Holy Spirit so seeing this one endorsed by some of my favorite authors made me want to take up and read.  Much of what is written on the Holy Spirit has an 'anything goes' feel to it with low-level discernment, but these people don't endorse tho [...]

      My initial review of this book seemed strident and incomplete, as I thought more about it. It is a worthy attempt at demystifying the doctrine of the Holy Spirit, and is very powerful in the area of application. By the end of the book the reader is very clear as to the author's vision of what a life might look like, should it be truly empowered and filled by the Holy Spirit and even how a blessed, Spirit-led culture might look, too. The author is an excellent writer, and share anecdotes from his [...]

      Short Review: a readable, biblical account of the work on the spirit in Christian the life. I thought it was good and devotionally focused. Each chapter started with several scriptures that the author wanted the reader to read and become familiar with. Then the chapter discussed one way the Spirit works in the life of a Christian.My full review is at bookwi/fresh-air-the-holy-s

      A Fresh Look at WorshipFresh Air does indeed take a new and considered look at worship as shown to us by the early Christian church. I would like to see all such enticements to things in a new way be so carefully researched and provided with such a firm foundation of premise.However, I left this well laid out book unconvinced that it offered a new hope. I did not see how a mix of proficy and teaching would cure the woes of today's church or what a church that embraced his solution would look lik [...]

      Levison is bright and makes frequent, thorough, references to Scripture. He encourages us to engage Scripture with him. Though a seminary professor, he writes in a very accessible style for lay readers. He lays out this book in eight chapters based on biblical characters' experiences with the Holy Spirit. He looks at Job, Daniel, Simeon, Joel, Chloe, Ezekiel, Peter, Jesus, and Paul. All of that is good. I mostly agreed with his observations in the last four chapters and mostly disagreed with his [...]

    6. Jeff Bjorgan

      A very insightful book with lots of real world application. Levison appeals to areas of Scripture that are not often taken into consideration when discussing a theology of the Holy Spirit. He has something to say and he does it well. He is persuasive in areas that need more attention (such as the inclusiveness of the Holy Spirit--poured out on all flesh), and surprises in areas that I hadn't thought of or known about before (such as the emphasis of the Holy Spirit driving Jesus out into the wild [...]

      There were some wonderful moments of fresh air in this book, e.g. the way he dealt with the story of Jesus baptism followed by his time in the wilderness. How do we make sense of the Holy Spirit coming upon Jesus gently like a dove one moment and then violently thrusting Jesus out into the wilderness to be confronted by evil personified? Levison makes good sense of that, but you will have to read it for yourself to find out what sense! There were other parts of the book that left me baffled, lik [...]

      Though provoking book on the Holy Spirit. I found myself reading and re reading portions and being discerning yet open. A definite worthy read and I like to be challenged to look at things in new ways. This book will do that for you. I have a keen interest in the Holy Spirit and have been reading Holy Spirit books for almost a year and a half. This ranks as fresh and good.
