    The most significant Bible study I’ve done regarding joining what God is doing through the Holy Spirit is “Experiencing God” by Henry Blackaby. I don’t recommend the book. Do the 13 week intensive workbook. The process is critically important.

    Amos Yong, “The Spirit Poured Out on All Flesh,” 2005.

    Jürgen Moltmann, “The Church in the Power of the Spirit,” 1977.
