Publisher's Description

Life-Changing Teaching on the Helper,
the Holy Spirit

Sarah Bowling, daughter of healing ministry pioneer Marilyn Hickey, learned about a personal relationship with the Holy Spirit early in life. But she feared excesses and emotionalism, and remained skeptical until she was a young woman, facing many unanswered questions about this mysterious Person. With candor about her extraordinary upbringing, Bowling shares her personal journey to find answers.

Working from the Bible's original languages, she addresses essential characteristics of the Holy Spirit, including many qualities often overlooked. Basing her study on Jesus' teaching during the Last Supper, Bowling offers refreshing insights for skeptics, new believers, and mature Christians alike. As you grow in understanding from Jesus' own words about the Holy Spirit, you can embrace the comfort, guidance, and power he is ready to give you every day.

    No matter how much religious education readers may have, none has ever learned about the Holy Spirit in the depth that this book explores. Author Sarah Bowling uses personal anecdotes as well as Scriptural examples to bring the Holy Spirit into close focus for readers.

    This book is a life-changer. The thrill of knowing that the Holy Spirit, the Helper sent by Jesus, is on duty 24/7 to help us all is overwhelming. For those of us whose knowledge of the Spirit and his gifts and fruits was scant, this is exciting. The fact that the Spirit has waited patiently for us to get to know Him is a testament to the love he has for us.

    Dont hesitate to buy this book and do be sure to share it with a friend. The grace that comes from reading and learning is just an opening act for the blessings the Spirit has for us. Grab this book and start to get acquainted with the best friend you will ever have.

    I was given a free copy of this book for the purpose of honest review and highly recommend it to all. You will be thrilled and transformed and will finish the book eager to start living with the Holy Spirit.

    When you start talking about the Holy Spirit, you sometimes are jumping right into murky waters. Everyone seems to believe something different. From the outlandish tales brought back by overseas missionaries to the small prompting to take a different route to work, everyone seems to experience this part of Christianity differently. It's easy to shove the unknown of it into a box and tuck it all away where it can't interfere with our lives - even to help us.

    Author Sarah Bowling took on a big project when she decided to write Heavenly Help, a book about understanding and relating to the Holy Spirit in our everyday lives. I think she did a pretty good job with this one, keeping things simple and understandable for all of us and also managing to stay away from the litany of "thou ought to be" that so many Christian lifestyle books fall into. She uses two teaching methods in her book: Allegory and personal experience/research.

    Though I found her allegory to be a bit unrealistic (I have never and probably will never have half of the conversations with my very closest friends that her two characters have with each other), it also was beautiful in the simple and outright way she represented her message. Her research seems grounded in reality (an important feature in research), and she doesn't go into the overly-exaggerated side of Christianity that I like to call "Woo woo gospel" where everything is so unbelievable you have to be drinking some serious KoolAid to be on board with it.

    I found it to be an enjoyable read, conveniently sized, with good chapter spacing so you can take it a piece at a time if you want or need to. Bowling gives us a lot to think about with Heavenly Help, along with some great prompts and questions at the end of each teaching chapter to get us actually thinking about it. Overall I think she's done a great job, and I'm glad that I got to be in Chosen Books' reviewing group for such a worthwhile read.

    Reading is probably my guiltiest pleasure and usually can be found devouring a book, any book, but the lastest read to come across my hands has changed me. I am ashamed to admit that my perception of the Holy Spirit was extremely limited. I will not put blame on anyone for my lack of knowledge, I will however say that Sarah Bowling has given me the gift of a complete understanding of the Holy Spirit. Heavenly Help: Experiencing the Holy Spirit in Everyday Life is so good that I have come to appreciate Chrisitanity more than I thought I ever could. I devoured her message, her thoughts, and her words like nothing I have ever read. It was as if Bowling herself were in my home sharing the beauty of the Holy Spirit. I wish everyone could get a copy of this life-altering book, it's a must read. I received a copy of this book from Chosen Books and all opinions are my own.

    Because I am one of those people more sensitive to learning and changing my opinions and attitudes by stories found in fiction, I dont read much nonfiction. So, when a friend who knew my preferences urged me to read Heavenly Help, I was resistant. Im glad I gave Heavenly Help a chance. Sarah Bowling based her book on Jesuss teaching during the Last Supper. I found Sarahs insights into the Holy Spirit and her practical approach in leading you on a journey into a deeper relationship with the Helper refreshing and exciting. I also loved that the illustrations given on each point in the book were told through a fictional friendship, something that is more relatable to me. Easy to read and encouraging, Heavenly Help was just the right book to read at this time for me (leading up to Easter Sunday).
