POURED OUT: THE HOLY SPIRIT IN US
A new book by a former Abilene Christian University professor explores the renewed interest in the Holy Spirit after what the author says are centuries of neglect.
Leonard Allen is author of “Poured Out: The Spirit of God Empowering the Mission of God.”
“Many are beginning to realize that the Spirit is not a junior member of the Trinity, tame and shy,” a news releases about the book states. “‘Poured Out’ explains why the church limited the Spirit for so long and how you can come to know the Spirit better and more fully.”
The book was published by ACU Press, which Allen previously served as editor. He currently is dean of the College of Bible and Ministry at Lipscomb University in Nashville, Tennessee. He has taught theology and ethics at John Brown University, Fuller Seminary, and ACUU and is the author of “Open to the Spirit,” “The Cruciform Church: Becoming a Cross-Shaped People in a Secular World,” and other books.
The book has received excellent reviews from such luminaries as Stanley Hauerwas and Scot McKnight:
