The four chapters cover: The Holy Spirit Alive in Scripture, The Holy Spirit Alive in the Catholic Church, The Holy Spirit Alive in Prayer, The Holy Spirit Alive in Your Life.

Activities are an integral part of The Spirit Alive process. Because different people have different learning styles, there are four categories of activities to choose from for chapters 1-3: written, artistic, interactive, digital.
