Item description for By My Spirit (By My Spirit Missions Classics) by Jonathan Goforth...
Overview By My Spirit is Dr. Goforth's written witness to a great outpouring of God's Spirit, and his utter joy at seeing God move among the people he loved. Goforth's unadorned account of those years makes enormously encouraging reading. It is all true, and seems almost too good to be real. But real it is, made possible by the same Spirit of God present in our own day!

Reviews - What do customers think about By My Spirit (By My Spirit Missions Classics)?
Very good book on revival Jun 28, 2008
This is an excellent first-hand account of Goforth's experiences as he preached throughout China and saw the Lord use him in miraculous ways. My only disappointment with the book is that I wish he had spent more time detailing his thoughts on revival and why the Lord was able to use him so effectively. He does deal with this briefly in the last chapter, but the majority of the book is simply descriptions of his experiences.
By My Spirit Jan 18, 2008
An inspiring account of the way in which God used Jonathan Goforth's utter obedience and commitment to accomplish remarkable work in China. We can be sure that the results of that work are still present in today's China, having an impact on the growth of the Christian Church there, even though it was almost 100 years ago. It was typical of the man's humility that he restricted this book to telling only of the work of God in revival, and said nothing of the enormous sacrifices and privations of himself and his family during their years in that country. He does mention the many who were martyred, which should be an inspiration to us as we live our comfortable lives.
REVIVAL! Mar 10, 2001
It is good to read a sober account of revival. God was really able to use the man (and his wife) to bring about growth. The principles here serve to remind us that God desires our whole, undivided heart.
Excellent Mar 11, 2000
This is a book that greatly moves one's heart. I've yet to meet a Christian who hasn't thoroughly appreaciated this book. Jonathan Goforth was a great man of God, and this book touches on his insights into a true walk with Jesus Christ.
