Item description for The Fruit of the Spirit: Becoming the Person God Wants You to Be by Thomas E. Trask & Wayde I. Goodall...

George Barna wrote, "Christianity is not losing influence in America because it is overmatched by the challenges of the day; it is losing its impact because believers have been unsuccessful at merging faith and lifestyle outside the walls of the church." The Fruit of the Spirit shows how God can reproduce his character in our hearts and lives. Specifically, the book will help readers develop a love that builds healthy relationships; a joy that can rejoice in any situation; a peace that can overcome anxiety and conflict; a patience that sees the benefits of waiting; a kindness that reaches out to others; a goodness that learns to live generously; a faithfulness that becomes the foundation of true friendships; a gentleness that shows strength through being tender; and a self-control that masters our passions

Publishers Description
Nothing Beats the Taste of Fresh Fruit Would you like true fulfillment in your life? Health in your relationships? Victory over anxiety and conflict? You can have them---if you let God s Spirit grow his fruit in your heart. In The Fruit of the Spirit, Tom Trask and Wayde Goodall take you for a close look at love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, and the rest of the fruit of the Spirit. Here is a passionate and illuminating look at what happens to your thoughts, emotions, and actions when you live each day in intimate relationship with Jesus Christ. Drawing from the storehouse of God s Word, Trask and Goodall sow seeds of insight into your heart that both convict and encourage. They show how you can cooperate with God s work in your life. And they offer true-life examples of the difference you, too, can make when you let the Holy Spirit reproduce the character of Jesus within you. Your witness for Christ is as good as the fruit your relationship with him produces. The Fruit of the Spirit points you toward a lifestyle that makes the Gospel you proclaim attractive to others because they can see its results."

From Publishers Weekly
The elusive "fruits of the Spirit" are not character qualities attainable only by the holiest among us, according to authors Trask (general superintendent of the Assemblies of God) and Goodall (an AG administrator who is executive editor of the Pentecostal journal Enrichment). They write that Bible meditation, prayers and ordinary persistence in developing godly habits are the practical measures Christians assume as they model their daily lives after that of Jesus Christ. Both men assure readers that God desires an intimate relationship with them, and that within that relational framework the Holy Spirit tenderly transforms people's minds, emotions and actions so that their lives consistently evidence spiritual fruit. The co-authors (The Battle, The Blessing, The Choice) effectively use personal anecdotes and everyday scenarios in their 11-chapter text to demonstrate how those rich in spiritual fruit are able to overcome life's most adverse problems. Each chapter discusses a different fruit from Galatians 5:22: love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control. Exactly what does God's fruit look like? The authors highlight "People fruit" (those we have introduced to Christ), "Giving fruit" (gifts of time, energy and money), "Gospel fruit" (sharing the gospel of Christ) and "Praise fruit" (worshipping God). This text is an excellent road map of hope and direction for anyone who wants to experience a deeper Christian spirituality. (Aug.) Copyright 2000 Cahners Business Information.

Reviews - What do customers think about Fruit Of The Spirit?

Fruit of the Spirit by Travis & Goodall review  Feb 19, 2009
I have to say this book is absolutely terrific. It is written in layman's terms and is simple to read and understand. It is exciting to see the scriptures that are quoted and the information that is being delivered. It has been so helpful to me to understand all the areas of the "Fruit of the Spirit." I have grown immensely just in reading the content. My understanding of Jesus' character has blossomed. I would highly recommend everyone to read this book. You don't even have to be interested specifically in the fruit of the Spirit to get enjoyment and knowledge from this book.
Walking with the Spirit in nine weeks.  Oct 25, 2008
Wow. This book was helpful for me and my congregation. We are smack dab in the middle of a sermon series on the fruits of the Spirit, nine weeks about the gifts of the spirit and this book has been tremendous for all of our preachers and has been incredible for our people because of the depth of our preaching using concrete examples that the book helped bring out. This book is very well written, easy to understand and brings depth into any relationship with God. I would recommend this book to anyone.
Great multi-view of the fruit  Apr 13, 2007
This book was written by taking many references from other writers. It was well written and helped me quite a bit in understanding, and bette yet, applying the fruits of the spirit to my life. God convicted me to seek out a book that covered this topic, helped me find the right one for me, and now I hope to help you with this review.
