Baker Keep in Step with the Spirit: Finding Fulness in Our Walk with God, 2nd edition

The Holy Spirit is often the most misunderstood member of the Trinity---and has come into greater focus in today's church revivals. In this updated edition of his classic, Packer explores the merits and shortcomings of the current charismatic movement---and how to make sure Christ is always at the center of true Spirit-led ministry. 248 pages, softcover from Baker.

Keeping in Step with The Spirit offers a no nonsense, realistic and most importantly scriptural analysis of Pentacostalism and the Charismatic movement. I highly recomend this book to anyone in those movements. This is my first book by Packer and not the last.

Deep reading, so you have to take it slowly and think on what you are reading to let it sink in. Packer explains Scripture beautifully and clearly. Excellent read!

It was hard to give this a 4.5 because I highly admire packer but found this to be the opposite of what I was expecting. This is a fair critique of the charismatic movement, which is beneficial for any christian. You always grow in your understanding of The Spirit by finding out what He is not. Plus you will interact with these people and its good to know where the Lord is at work and not at work in the movement. Throughout the book he is providing a practical understanding of how the Spirit works in His saints, but no practical/devotional type chapters per say. If you are looking to grow in your knowledge of The Spirits work in our life and how we are to interact with Him, I would look to more simpler works first because of this books technical nature. But I would highly recommend reading it. It was extremely edifying for me, and also a lesson in grace by watching packer disect charismania with condeming them. His statement is "God will work in the lives of those who have an incorrect understanding of His ways even tho He desires a correct knowledge of Himself" So theres hope for the charismatics still! And the rest of us... praise God.

I did not read whole book but portions of book talk about every-member ministry. I found it very helpful and gratifying. Particularly, Korean pastors need to read this book. I come across not well read Korean pastors who accusing Plymouth Brethren cult based on Church Polity. Ignorance is not a virtue.
