It's easy for American Christians to forget how Jesus said his followers would actually live, what their new lifestyle would actually look like.

Unfortunately, today's church has admired the gift but neglected to open it. Breakthrough author Francis Chan rips away paper and bows to get at the true source of the church's power-the Holy Spirit.
