Item description for Harvesting Spiritual Fruit: Following God's Path to True Love, Joy and Peace by Jonathan Niemeyer...
Overview Millions of Americans have turned to books on prayer in hopes of attaining God's favor and wonderful blessings. In Harvesting Spiritual Fruit - Following God's Path to True Love, Joy and Peace, Jonathan Niemeyer now takes us beyond prayer to Christian living through a practical application of Galatians 5:22, the fruit of the spirit. Mr. Niemeyer contends that God, although He obviously invites us and even instructs us to come before Him in prayer, is also keenly interested in how we live our lives when not praying as well. He maintains that a simple verse of Paul's letter to the Galatians holds phenomenal promise for those of us who truly employ the fruit of the spirit -- love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control -- in our relationships with God, our spouses, our children, our friends and our neighbors. Faithfully applying the fruit of the spirit to our lives is much easier said than done, but the rewards - pure love, joy and peace -- can be everlasting!

Great things come in small packages. . . Jul 29, 2003
I don't know what book Mr. Nyman was reading, or what kind of mood he was in when reading it, but he seems, for a Christian, eager to cast the first stone. Mr. Niemeyer's short book IS emotional, IS patriotic, and IS timely. 9/11 changed the lens through which we perceive the world. This book was published just 6 months after 9/11 and its message still rings true. No literary work is interesting without an emotional connection. Mr. Niemeyer's discussion of his father shapes his words, and gives color to his message of love and hope.
With regard to patriotism and Christianity, Mr. Niemeyer rightly recognizes that this nation was founded on Christian principles. Mr. Nyman posits that to found a nation on Christian principles is to found a fascist state. At this point in reading Nyman's review I began to question his sanity, or at least his motives. Regardless, I believe the U.S. is far from a fascist state. I dare say 99% of Americans and even most of the world would agree.
The bottom line is that this is a fabulous short read for "baby Christians" and long time Christians. This isn't C.S. Lewis, of course, but the scripture is sound, the examples timely and interesting, and the author apparently sincere. Kudos to Niemeyer for wearing his heart on his sleeve for Christ. Shame on Mr. Nyman for seemingly having a vendetta that is very un-Christlike vs. this wonderful and hopeful book.
This guy is for REAL!!! Oct 18, 2002
Mr. Niemeyer is a bonafied writer of the first order! His take on God's plan for all of us is stirring but I find that his descriptive passages tend to steal the thunder. His next undertaking should be "fiction".
A guide for personal and spiritual growth Jun 24, 2002
Harvesting Spiritual Fruit is a direct path to God's true Love and Happiness. Mr. Niemeyer uses the fruit of the spirit from Galatians 5:22,23 to guide us to deeper relationships with God, family, and freinds. This book is an easy read that helps us to emmulate Christ's love(for us) in all of are interactions with each other. The end result can only be God's true Love, Joy and Peace in our lives. This is a truley wonderful book that I will use as continuous reinforcement for how I should live my life. I recommend this book to anyone who is interested in obtaining true happiness in their life.
A refreshing book Jun 2, 2002
I was so pleased to read a book that emphasizes practical, holy living as God intended us to live. So many Christian books written today put great emphasis upon the gifts of the Spirit, but very little upon the fruits of the Spirit. Jonathan Niemeyer has done a superb job in correlating and integrating the truths of God's Word into practical settings for family living, as well as for other relationships. The book is concise and easily read. The message is one we all need to hear and to heed. Everyone needs to read this book. The message it contains has long been overdue for the times in which we live in today.

Todays society often emphasizes excess, materialism, anger and hatred. It can all too often lead us down a path away from God's word and leave a void in our lives. In 'Harvesting Spiritual Fruit', Jon Niemeyer provides the fruit to fill that void. This book captures the spirit of true happiness. A great 'read' for anyone seeking to focus on true happiness and what truly is important in one's life!
