Great for Spiritual Growth Nov 10, 2006
This is a wonderful book that needs to be read more than once! It is a great aid in learning how to truly be spirit-led and spirit-filled! I highly recommend it to all Christians seeking to grow in the Lord.
Book Outlines No-Lordship Position Aug 21, 2001
Dr. Chafer was a well respected man of God. As a teacher, pastor, and theologian, Chafer brought to the Body of Christ a desire to teach God's truth by God's Spirit.
This book is not one of my favorite Chafer books. While I have no problem reading books that I disagree with, I did find that this book was quite boring and shallow in its teaching on the holiness of the believer.
Chafer outlines in this book his defense of "no-Lordship" salvation. That is that one can become a Christian but never move beyond mere mental belief in the facts of the gospel. He proposes that those who are spiritual (that is sold out to Jesus) mustn't judge those who appear to not be. God alone is the judge (Matthew 7:1) so let the Holy Spirit lead them to a deeper relationship with Himself (John 6:44).
For a balanced and biblical view of "Lordship" salvation please see John MacArthur's book "The Gospel According To Jesus" and "Faith Works."
A Must Read For Every Christian! Sep 8, 2000
Dr. Chafer in this brief book exposes the reality of being spiritual. From solid Biblical exposition he affirms that being spiritual or in fellowship with the Lord is an absolute state. While Dr. Chafer's archaic prose is sometimes difficult to navigate through, the book is a diamond in a dung heap. It is one of the best books available for sound spiritual growth and well worth overcoming Dr. Chafer's old prose.
Concise teaching on the Holy Spirit Feb 3, 1999
Dr. Chafer presents a brief but practical work on the ministry of the Holy Spirit in the daily life of the Believer. It is worth reading, and rereading, to glean all that is available to the hungry heart! The Lord has used the truths unfolded in this book to really empower my own walk in the Spirit.
GOOD, BUT DRY Nov 5, 1998
Chafer is an excellent theologian, right on target, and well worth reading. However, his writing style is difficult, and to read his books is work. This is not an easy read, but it is a good read.
