Summary

What If the Supernatural Became Normal and Natural in Your Life?

How would your world change if you regularly experienced the miraculous? And what if this happened everywhere you went - in a way that attracted people to Jesus? It wouldn't just make a difference in your world...it would make the world different.

It might sound too good to be true, but that's the Spirit Contemporary life.

While working as a first responder in an ambulance, Leon Fontaine longed to see God's power at work outside the four walls of the church. He learned through many life-changing experiences that we can all unlock the miraculous in a way that works anywhere - at home, in a hospital, at work - with anyone!

The Spirit Contemporary way of life involves communicating with others as Jesus would - using their language, stories, and settings. Leon draws on biblical truth and personal stories to reveal how this dynamic first-century faith can be yours when you live so in tune with God that you're guided in ways that are both natural and supernatural.

Unleash the Miraculous in Your World!

The Spirit Contemporary Life reveals the key to living an empowered life - one that connects your day-to-day existence with God's supernatural power.

When faced with the realities of a hurting world as a first-responder EMT, Leon Fontaine developed a passion for seeing God's miraculous power at work - not only at the altar but also in the back of his ambulance. And he wanted to do it in a way that wasn't strange or off-putting to those who didn't know Christ.

Maybe you can relate. You want to hear from God more clearly and see miracles happen in your everyday life. And you want to live your life in a way that attracts people to the Jesus you know and love. Using real-life examples, Leon demonstrates how you can access God's supernatural power without compromise and do it in a way that draws others to Christ.

If this sounds good, hang on, because you're in for the adventure of your life! This transformational shift won't change just you. It will change the world around you.

Critic reviews

"In a world seeking an authentic, transparent, and genuine touch of God, Leon equips us with a Christ-centered, Spirit-empowered, Bible-based, kingdom prescription." (Samuel Rodriguez, president, National Hispanic Christian Leadership Conference, author of Be Light)
"When 'Spirit' and 'Contemporary' are synergized, phenomenal outcomes will happen in the church...I believe this valuable resource will help the church go to higher levels of impact and influence in the years ahead." (Dr. Elmer L. Towns, cofounder of Liberty University)

Fantastic book!

One of the best books I have ever read, I can relate to this book 100 percent. Leon teaches commonsense Bible theology, that works. I really recommend this book. I have the Audible version, I am going to listen again, right now!

Life Changing

The information and principles in The Spirit Contemporary Life are life changing.

We need to understand that being a Christian is not all about living a life of comfort in our own little bubble, nor is Christianity about living a life of drudgery, following rules and regulations. It's about being set apart in order to influence and lead others to a life-changing relationship with Christ.

Using his own experiences, Leon Fontaine beautifully describes what it means to live a spirit-filled life that is relevant to reach the world we live in today.

Spirit Contemporary Life

Pastor Leon Fontaine teaches a very practical way to live a Christian life from every angle. I learned so very much and I’ve been a Christian for 40 years. I’m returning to L. A. F. Get the book to find out. Jesus said, His yoke is easy, His burden light. That’s how I feel after reading this book!

Demystifying the ministry of the Holy Spirit

As a pastor, I appreciate Pastor Leon’s approach to make following the Holy Spirit in every day life accessible to everyone. This is not in the book for you if you are looking for deep, mystical experiences with the unseen, but if you’re looking for a consistent and productive way to live with the Holy Spirit, this is the one for you.

False theology

Entertaining and zealous but a false teacher in our time, nevertheless. Use discernment, brothers & sisters.

Powerful

I love it when an author reads their book. I comprehend so much more. This book equips Christians with a more effective way of witnessing so a non-believer will be interested. Finally a book about having a practical walk with our Lord while still allowing Holy Spirit's power to move and perform the many blessings of God's love for everyone! Leon Fontaine explains how to let Holy Spirit work these miracles through us everyday. It's true, the Bible says so. It is not just for special Christians, but for ALL who will believe. Holy Spirit is anxious to swing wide the gates of Heaven. - May His Glory pour out on us. Halleluhia!! ((sp).
