Pastor Cymbala's unique style of presenting from his own experiences words and then testimonies from others to arouse our belief in a compassionate God. I am always emotionely and Spirit filled from his and their experiences. I can empathize with some of the testimonies. Likewise, Christ suffered more than we ever will. He knows and His love exceeds anything this world has to offer!
Jim Cymbala's Spirit Rising is a must read for anyone who wants to experience more of God's power at work in their life. Conversations about God are common place, not so much about Jesus Christ, and almost non-existant about the Holy Spirit. Jim does a fantatastic job focusing us on the third person of the Trinity and lays a solid foundation for important study and conversation.
Spirit Rising is another excellence book from Jim Cymbala. He is always scripturally sound and with his ability to draw from living testimonies from within his own church he paints a power full picture. He is able to show the practical side of true faith when people seek after and live in obedience to the Holy Spirit's guidance.
