Transforming Presence
How the Holy Spirit Changes Everything—From the Inside Out
(Moody Publishers, 2018)

WHO: Daniel Henderson, president of Strategic Renewal.

HE SAYS: “We must reawaken our understanding and resolve to experience the promise of ‘Christ in you, the hope of glory’ (Col. 1:27) for the sake of a culture that is confused and held prisoner by darkness.”

THE BIG IDEA:This book walks readers through 10 practices to help them experience the Holy Spirit.

THE PROGRESSION:
Outlining 10 vital habits for a new experience of the Holy Spirit, the text examines one practice per chapter, starting with “Agree to Evaluate Your Assumptions.”
Chapter 2 tackles embracing the Holy Spirit’s primary purpose while Chapter 3 encourages readers to live in the new covenant.
Chapter 4 shows Christ followers why they should pursue an “indwelling person” instead of an “external presence,” then Chapter 5 takes a long look at why we should worship as if we were the house of the Lord.
“Experience the God Who Already Showed Up” is Chapter 6; Chapter 7 is “Seeking a ‘Filling’, Not a ‘Falling.’”
The eighth practice is filtering the message and the ninth examines the gift of biblical emotion. The book concludes with “Maximize Your New Covenant Life Plan.”

“The Holy Spirit is ready to conduct a Christ-exalting, supernatural work in your life starting today, and He will do it from the inside out.”
