Jesus, Continued…: Why the Spirit Inside You Is Better than Jesus Beside You

Jesus, Continued...Order NOW!


Why does the Holy Spirit often feel more like a doctrine we know about than a Person we know? Why do so many of us think of Christianity as a lifestyle to which we conform, rather than a God with whom we commune?

Author J.D. Greear asks those questions because throughout his Christian life he felt disconnected to God and unsure about how to interact with him. Although he had learned a lot of truths about God, he sensed very little relationship with him—at least, not the dynamic, two-way relationship he really wanted.

But Greear discovered it doesn’t have to be like that. Not at all. In clear and practical language, he explains how any follower of Jesus can have a satisfying, powerful relationship with God through the Holy Spirit.

While many books about the Holy Spirit get stuck in secondary questions that divide believers, Jesus, Continued focuses on a central, truth that unites us: God wants to be vitally present in and through his people. This truth, though central, is sadly neglected. This generation of Christians—mission-driven but burned out, weary, and longing for joy—desperately needs to recover the dynamic presence of God. And the good news is that God wants us to have exactly that.

  6. One of our pastors recommended this book, this weekend, during service. I would like to start posting book recommendations via Twitter and FB for our church. Would it be OK to use an image of the cover of this book in a graphic to post?

    Nancy, you’ve got our green light. Go ahead and use the image of “Jesus, Continued” to promote it! We do that all the time, and it helps people to know what you’re mentioning.

    Carlos,

    We have translated some of Pastor J.D.’s work into other languages, but that often lies with the publishers (this one is Zondervan). As of now, we don’t have plans to translate “Jesus Continued” into Spanish. But we might consider it if we have enough demand for it!

  10. Hi — we are excited to be using this book for a church-wide message series and small groups. Is there a connection between video session on the small group DVD’s with the book chapters? (i.e. session 1 = chapter 1-3,etc) Thanks!

  11. I am a missionary prison chaplain with not a lot of funding. Do you give any kind of discounts to those in ministry? I would love to do the Jesus Continued with a group of men here in South Carolina Prison System. Need 20 more books. Can you help. Thank you for your time. I loved the book, Thank you much.

    Joe, unfortunately, we don’t provide ministry discounts on our resources at this point. I hope you can find some folks in your church to help defray the costs–and to aid you in your ministry.

    I am leading two groups through Jesus Continued. I like it that much!! Can you give me any kind of outline or guide as to how the workbook and video correspond to the book chapters?? Thank you so much.
