Who is the Holy Spirit anyway?
We sing songs about Him. We’ve seen His name in the Bible. And most of us know He’s a part of the Trinity, but misunderstandings, confusion, and contention abound. And it’s keeping us from the abundant, satisfying life God has for us.
The solution? We need a biblical understanding of the Holy Spirit. Transforming Presence walks you through ten vital practices that will help you have a new experience of the Holy Spirit. You’ll learn how our relationship with the Holy Spirit changed from the Old Testament to the New Testament, what common misconceptions of the Holy Spirit are, and how to think, speak, (and sing) rightly about Him.
It can be hard to discern what’s right and wrong in a world of gray scales, differing preferences, and emotional highs, but when we start with the Bible, all the secondary things fall into place.
Discover the transformational, personal, and joyful relationship that comes from meeting the Holy Spirit on His own terms.
Why did Jesus say it would be better for Him to go?
He said the coming of the Helper—the Holy Spirit—was that important. And that the Spirit who so powerfully turned bumbling disciples into unstoppable world changers is alive in us. But misunderstandings, confusion, and contention are keeping us from the abundant, satisfying life God has for us in Him.
Transforming Presence teaches you what Scripture actually says about the indwelling Spirit of God who wants to revive us from the inside-out. It walks you through ten vital practices that will help you have a new experience of the Holy Spirit and shows you how to think, speak, (and sing) rightly about Him.
But be careful, when you approach the Holy Spirit like this—on His own terms—nothing in your life will ever be the same.
“Transforming Presence will help you get to the place where the indwelling Holy Spirit has a monopoly on you, your family, and your church. It is distinctively gospel oriented and will give you practical insights on how to live in the power of the new covenant because of all Jesus has done for you.”
Shiloh Church, Jacksonville, Florida
“It’s true that Christianity is hopeless without the Holy Spirit. Daniel Henderson places that fact front and center in his new book. What’s desperately needed today is the faith that all power is in the Holy Spirit.”

“Transforming Presence is the best book on the work of the Holy Spirit to appear in this century. It is biblically accurate, theologically solid, and perfectly balanced.”

“It’s so easy to settle for assumptions that pass for theology. Glossy phrases, catchy lyrics, oft-repeated slogans work their way into our ideas of truth without the foundational work of studying and applying scriptural clarity. With the New Testament as the linchpin, Transforming Presence leads us to a helpful reexamination, and every reader will be richer for it.”
Jennifer Kennedy Dean Author of Live a Praying

“Transforming Presence cuts through familiar traditions, personal biases, and cultural slants to open our eyes anew to the wildly life-changing reality of the indwelling Holy Spirit. Thoroughly Biblical. Personally Transformational. Refreshingly Life-giving. “
Lead Pastor, Hill Country Bible Church, Austin, Texas
“This book will change the way many—from both cessationist and continuationist perspectives—think about the Person and work of the Holy Spirit. This is valuable teaching for every Christian, but I especially recommend it to pastors and worship leaders.”
