GREAT COMBINATION OF SPIRIT AND DISCIPLINE Aug 26, 1998
I read this book over the course of a week and thoroughly delved into it, not so much because its words were profound, but because the authors do a great job of helping the reader understand what it takes to walk in the Spirit daily. They discuss basic disciplines like prayer, bible study, fellowship, witnessing, solitude, and sacrifice and help the reader understand how each discipline draws us to the Holy Spirit. They also explain how to balance our role in drawing near to God and the Spirit's role in empowering us for God's glory so that we can lose more of ourselves and become like Christ. We are going to use this book in our Christian small group study. I would highly recommend it to all who are serious about yielding to the Spirit consistently and pursuing all of your resources in Christ! FIVE STARS!!
Excellent guide to intimacy with God thru the Holy Spirit Jul 17, 1998
I had been struggling in my communion and fellowship with God lately, and had been searching for my way back to intimacy with Him. I discovered this book and began to browse, and discovered it was what I was looking for. Not only does the book describe the spiritual disciplines, but it gives you practical steps and suggestions, through the disciplines, to lead you into a life of walking in the Spirit day by day. It is not academic or theoretical, nor is it philosophical. I've only had the book a couple of hours, and I'm already excited! I recommend this book to all who are seeking true fellowship and intimacy with God through the Holy Spirit.
