The author came from a conservative Christian background in which there was no expectation of experiencing the power of God in today's world. Unexpectedly and somewhat reluctantly, God brought him into surprising encounters and experiences with the Holy Spirit. This book describes what happened when he embarked on this unexpected journey. Also, it provides evidence from the Scriptures and Church History to support the validity of these experiences. It is an encouragement, and maybe even a challenge, to be open to the Lordly freedom of God the Holy Spirit. "You hold a book that will enable you to know a man who is worth knowing. He writes with the skill of a good author. His knowledge and years of diligent study will be self evident. But you will be most impacted by his passionate pursuit to know God as He really is and not some cultural or adapted version of God. Jesus identified eternal life as knowing God and knowing Himself. "And this is eternal life, that they know you the only true God, and Jesus Christ whom you have sent." (John 17:3 ESV) Growth in grace and knowledge characterize Barry's journey with his "encounters" with the living God. Knowing God has been the passion and unrelenting pursuit of this man. Every new wave of the presence of God moving from glory to glory has caused Barry and Janet Manuel to fly wherever that visitation occurred. Barry has opened His heart, His mind and His life to accommodate the realities of God's order of kingdom reality. Usually when he attended a visitation of God's manifested presence He could call me with the suggestion to get there and receive the fuel of God's grace, power and upgraded anointing."
