Description

Dynamic, Never-Before-Published Work on the Holy Spirit from A.W. Tozer What does it mean to have the Holy Spirit in our lives? Many look to extraordinary experiences and manifestations as evidence of the Spirit. But what happens when the event is over? How can we experience the Holy Spirit in the ordinary, everyday world? How can we be filled with the Spirit? In this material taken from Tozer's sermons, he answers these questions and explores life in the Spirit from a balanced perspective. The church needs the gifts of the Spirit--all of them--or it will never be what God intends it to be. But this has to happen in wisdom and humility. Many people talk about being filled with the Holy Spirit, but very few accept the conditions for being filled. Tozer lays down requirements for the Holy Spirit to come into our lives and transform us into Spirit-filled people.

This book is a compilation of writings on the Holy Spirit by A. W. Tozer. I have to be honest in saying it is not the kind of book I expected but it was still beneficial. Most of the book is devotional with short chapters that can be read daily in just a few minutes. Each chapter ends with a few

key questions to help you focus thinking on the Holy Spirit in your own life.

I tend to be one who likes a more substantial read when it comes to theological things. That being said this is still full even though it is lighter reading than most of the theology books by Tozer I have read in the past. It is very personal... filled with personal testimony and experiences from Tozer's life. It is not packed full of scripture but it does have some that help make some of his points. I like the use of testimony. It can build up the body, too, and his stories are full of the hand of God in his life.

Since it is a compilation the writing does not flow well in some places so it is a bit disjointed but the topic is valid and the information is truth so I would give this one a 3.5 out of 5 and tell you that if you enjoy devotional reading this is a good fit for you.
