Shirley Borgialli5 Stars Out Of 5June 2, 2002Shirley BorgialliI 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 an easy 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 in the times for which we live in today.
Salvatore Aprile5 Stars Out Of 5May 28, 2002Salvatore AprileThis book reminds me of the religious instruction my mother spent time trying to instill in my siblings and myself. She is a wonderful woman, so I gave one to her on Mother's Day. She loved it and has recommended it to her friends and the Father, as well.

Tell us a little about yourself. Jonathan Niemeyer is an attorney for a midwestern corporation and lives in Cincinnati with his wife and two children. Mr. Niemeyer has been published in legal and sports related publications, and this is his first Christian book.
What was your motivation behind this project? Due to the "Jabez phenomenon", many may now think that the secret to eternal life is praying to God to be personally blessed, and praying to God to enlarge their territories. However, as followers of Christ know, although the Prayer of Jabez may be a useful prayer tool, the true key to salvation and to closeness with God is not the prayer of a little known Old Testament figure. If Jabez's prayer holds the signficance placed on it by Bruce Wilkinson, why did Jesus not mention Jabez even once during his 30 plus years on this earth? Instead of focusing on a simple prayer, Harvesting Spiritual Fruit is based solidly on Galatians 5:22-23, the fruit of the spirit -- love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control -- and on dozens of other references to scripture which relate to and bolster this significant passage of Paul's letter to the Galatians. In September 2001, my daughter, in kindergarten at a Christian elementary school, was charged with memorizing Galatians 5:22-23 as her scripture verse of the entire year. As my wife and I helped our daughter to memorize this crucial passage, an idea was born, which has now made its way into print. Hopefully, Harvesting Spiritual Fruit will be as convicting for you as a reader as it was for me in writing it. Good luck and God Bless!
