Word Spirit Power by R.T Kendall, Charles Carrin & Jack Taylor.

I knew immediately after reading the title of this book that it was “the next one up” of books the Lord was wanting me to read. It was as if Holy Spirit took a deep breath and gave me mouth to mouth. As I began and continued to read I was reassured this to be the case. I have come to know that people are usually one of two things…1)Having begun in the Word or 2) Having begun in the Spirit. I personally began in the Spirit…I accepted Jesus Christ as my personal Savior at a movie theatre, outside of the four church walls and was baptized in the Holy Spirit in a treatment center, also outside the four church walls. I was given spiritual gifts and was walking in the Spirit long before I understood what any of this meant. It was all confirmed to me in the Word of God years later. I came to see I had a need to know more of God’s Word and always felt a lack in this area. Yet I also found there were people who had the Word but not the Spirit. I found there was a need, and still is, for the two, Spirit and Word to come together. So it was not a surprise to me that the Lord would quicken this book for me to read. Once I attended a conference where the minister shared his secret for having the power of the Holy Spirit…so much so that he would lay hands on the dead and they would come to life again! Yes! He said he moved in the Holy Spirit and that he was continually reading his bible. That made an impact on me and I have held it in my heart. The authors in this book share many nuggets and testimonies of truth regarding the importance of Spirit and Word coming together and equally Power. Especially in the last days. There were parts of the book that were so pure of God’s Truth that it brought me to tears and caused me to practically hold my breath as I took in the words. I am thankful for the Lord placing this very timely book in my hands and I highly recommend it to you as well. May it encourage you to pray regarding your own lack in whichever direction it may be in, whether it be in Spirit or in Word and that the Lord would encourage you as He has me to head in the right direction !!! I received this book for free from the publisher CHOSEN, a division of Baker Publishing Group in exchange for a book review. I was not required to write a favorable review. Freely I have been given, now freely I give.
