No book will take the place of the bible. However I must say this book brings great understanding to the gifts the Lord offers us that unfortunately are not emphasized in too many churches and not even discussed in some. This remarkable and true book, I believe will help all progress in their walk with the Lord. For those who have given their life to Christ and been baptized in water, you might find this book instrumental in taking that next step. I did.
This book uses contextual scripture reference to prove that there has to be an acceptance of God's power through grace gifting for the terrestrial Christian to live a truly effective life for Christ and not be overcome by satanic attacks.
I found brother Charles' book to be, perhaps, the most exciting chronicle of the move of the Spirit that I have read in some time. I have been fortunate enough to attend several of his meetings and have been moved by Charles Carrin's humility. Despite his experience and years in ministry, brother Charles exhibits so clearly the fruits of the Spirit.As listed in Gal 5:22-23, the gifts that are from God alone, are it seems ever present in his life. I am not trying to build him into an idol, but Charles has bolstered my belief in the importance of being filled with God's Holy Spirit. I eagerly await other God inspired books and hope to see brother Charles again. Great book!
