Customer Reviews for Hendrickson Publishers Life in the Spirit

Hendrickson Publishers Life in the Spirit

Hendrickson presents two classic works on the Holy Spirit by A. W. Tozer, together in one volume for the first time. A superb addition to the best-selling Hendrickson Christian Classics series, Life in the Spirit combines Tozer's How to Be Filled with the Spirit and The Counselor: Straight Talk About the Holy Spirit from a Twentieth Century Prophet.

In Tozer's own words, How to be Filled with the Holy Spirit "was made available to the Christian public with the prayer that it may lead thirsty believers to the fountain of living waters." Since its publication, hundreds of thousands of copies of this practical yet deeply devotional guide have been sold. How to be Filled with the Holy Spirit will refresh and open the reader to the filling of the Holy Spirit.

In The Counselor, Tozer speaks to the current conflict and confusion about the Holy Spirit from a balanced, biblical perspective-not academic, but practical. Tozer promises that the Holy Spirit "is willing-yes, willing-to do for us all that Jesus would do if He were here on earth." The chapters of this book were originally preached as sermons at Southside Alliance Church in Chicago. Whether spoken or written, Tozer's words were designed to "promote personal heart religion" among God's people.

This slim collection of 2 of Tozer's books on the Holy Spirit gives excellent teaching on the Spirit - knowing who He is and cultivating His fellowship. Tozer as always has his share of cutting words to say to both nominal and uncommitted Christians, and urge us to walk in agreement with the Spirit, who always glorifies Jesus Christ. I highly recommend this book. A great hardbook at a low price, too.

Every Christian should read this book. It is sad that we do not have men like Tozer today, that will tell it like it is. There is to many SEAT WARMERS in our church today.

Tozer writes a thought provoking understanding of Who the Holy Spirit is and what He has for those who want God more than anything else in their lives. He stands firm on God's promise to send the Holy Spirit into the hearts and lives of believers who are hungry for all that God wants to reveal to them and do in them. Excellent, inspiring words for "burning hearts" for God.
