Item description for The Holy Spirit and You: A Study Guide to the Spirit Filled Life (Spirit Filled Classic) by Dennis Bennett & Rita Bennett...
Overview The early Christians lived in the power of the Holy Spirit. The miraculous new life they had in Christ amazed the world, and "turned it upside down."
It you have ever asked, "What happened to those wonderful things that used to happen in the Church?" you will be excited to know that many Christians have discovered that they can still happen in our day.
Healing, miracles, prophecy, and other gifts of the Holy Spirit are being seen and heard, as is the spiritual "fruit" of the Holy Spirit. They are being experienced by everyday Christians who are receiving a new kind of life in the power of the Spirit.
The Rev. Dennis J. Bennett was one of the key figures in the charismatic renewal for over thirty years. The 1973 Encyclopedia Britannica Yearbook says:
"When, in 1960, Father Dennis Bennett announced to his congregation, St. Mark's Episcopal Church at Van Nuys, California, that he had experienced a new outpouring of God's Spirit, the recent movement can be said to have begun. . . . Before long, 'charismatic renewal' became an issue across the land."
These events, and what followed, Dennis Bennett told in plain and moving fashion in his book, Nine O'clock in the Morning.
Now in this book, The Holy Spirit and You, Dennis and his wife, Rita, tell simply and readably just how you can experience the same outpouring of the Holy Spirit in your life that has been experienced in the lives of hundreds of thousand of others since that fateful day in 1960. Even in the middle of this increasingly frightening world and times, you can have the same peace, joy, and love that was such a part of the early Church.
This book has been read by thousands of people of many backgrounds all over the world. It is available in Dutch, English, French, German, Japanese, Spanish, Hebrew, Arabic, and Swedish. It has been hailed as a key textbook on the subject by leaders in groups as diverse as Roman Catholic and Assemblies of God. Over 1 million copies have been sold.

It changed my life. Dec 20, 2005
All the time in the media you hear "Buy this. Buy that. It will change your life!" Yeah, right.
But this book really did change my life. I got curious about this thing called "the Baptism of the Holy Spirit." Someone loaned me the book. I saw a little prayer in it for receiving "the Heavenly languge of tongues". I read it out loud, with virtually no forethought and no real expectations of anything happening. Suddenly my jaw dropped and I was able to speak in tongues!
Not only that, but within several days another change, totally unexpected, could be seen. I had this new inner peace inside so that my formerly very bad temper was so removed from me that people who worked with me years later could hardly believe I ever had a temper! Victory over a nasty temper was by no means the only blessing that came forth, either.
I have not read this book for over 10 years. There might be things I would nitpick about now that I am a more matured believer. Or maybe not. In any case, I will always be grateful for it.
The Book That Launched a Movement Jun 28, 2004
Father Dennis Bennett wrote this book to simply give his curious readers a look inside the charismatic experience that was taking place at his Episcopal Church in southern California but little did he know that this book will literally launch a new movement within the evangelical church world. From this book has come millions of charismatics within mainline denominations such as Episcopal, Lutheran, Methodist, Roman Catholics, and many others.
The book is written in a autobiography style with Bennett adding verses of Scripture here and there to help the reader see the teaching of the Baptism in the Holy Spirit with the evidence of speaking in tongues (Acts 2:4). In short, Father Bennett wants his reader to know that this is indeed an experience with the Spirit but he wants you to see that it is based on Scripture.
While you might read this book and not agree with Father Bennett over the Spirit-Baptism, you can't help but to realize how hungry for Jesus we truly need to be and how God wants us to be on fire for Him (Romans 12:11-12; 1 Thess. 5:19).
An excellent guide to a Spirit-filled life! Oct 27, 2000
In this book you will find the best description of what the baptism of the Holy Spirit is about!! Includes also a biblical description of each gift of the Spirit and its application for today. In the last section you will find insights about how to walk in the Spirit. Since the very first time I read it 22 years ago, this book assisted me in my christian walking. I strongly recommend this book to every honest believer who is looking for the release of the power of the Holy Ghost in his/her life!!!
What a life changing book Jul 31, 2000
This book is a must read for all christians. It takes you from start to finish...everything you ever wanted to know about experiencing the Holy spirit in your life. What a great resource. The information and application of it is life changing!
An excellent introduction/explanation of Holy Spirit's works Jun 6, 1999
This is an excellent book for anyone only recently introduced to the works of the Holy Spirit, or for the 'mature' Christian seeking a better understanding of how the Holy Spirit's gifts function in the church today. Written from the perspective of someone who started out totally ignorant of the Spirit and His work, the book takes nothing for granted and explains everything clearly and with Scriptural references. A book that I keep several copies on hand - to give to friends and new Christians seeking to understand gifts like tongues, words of wisdom and miracles. THE BEST introduction for those with no knowledge or past experience with the Holy Spirit that I have ever found.
