One reason people who aren't interested in God is because so many people in church deny his power. They deny the Holy Spirit. With this wonderful writing, RT Kendall, ironically and yet obviously inspired by the Holy Spirit, informs us of the huge impact God can have in our lives and those around us when we let go of religious thinking. We need to stop trying to put God in a box.
I have learned so much from this book. Even as a mature Christian, I have read and reread the chapters, thrilled with the new intimacy I have experienced with this new understanding of my Lord. Would be great for a Bible Study group.
I purchase books for a men's church book review group. This is the first book we have read by R.T. Kendall and it is also the first book we have read that deals with the topic of the Holy Spirit. We haven't gotten very far into the book but I must say the book is quite intriguing and well written. It isn't a book for scholars. It's a book easily understood by anyone who seeks a better understanding of the Holy Spirit with direct correlation to scripture.
Definitely an A+ for the author Dr. Kendall. I most definitely recommend this book to anyone wanting to learn more on the Holy Spirit. It is easy to read and biblically based. Dr. Kendall does an excellent job at teaching, he definitely uses well his Holy Spirit given gift for teaching the Scriptures. It is sound teaching. He keeps Jesus Christ as the center of our lives as it should be and how the Holy Spirit works to get us there. I also read Strange Fire by a different author which I considered wrong from the start. Dr. Kendall is very open minded and kind to his critics, very compassionate. The Holy Spirit is characterized by a number of fruits and gifts, and it shows as you read through this wonderful lecture. Very well done. I have no words to further describe how awesome and pleasurable experience it has been. Its a keeper.
