Many people find the Holy Spirit mysterious, confoundingâ€”even controversial. Why is the third person in the Godheadâ€”the one Jesus said would be the believerâ€™s ultimate source of truth and comfortâ€”the source of such confusion?â€ The premise of this book initially caught my eye, and I requested this book in hopes of digging deeper and answering some questions. We all know who God is, and we all know who Jesus is. But the Holy Spirit has brought up questions with people for some time.
While I had high aspirations for this title, it didn't live up. I requested this book in June of 2011, and as of today, December 6, 2012, I still havenâ€™t managed to finish it. I sometimes have a hard time with Christian self-help books, as it is very easy for someone to use their opinions and steer people away from what I believe scripture actually teaches. I canâ€™t say for sure if this book did that or not, because as I said above, I still havenâ€™t finished it. I donâ€™t like that I requested a book to review and am giving a review when I didn't complete it, but I also have heard the saying that life is short and you should only read the good ones.
This may have been a great book, but it never caught me and made me want to read more.
I received this book from Waterbrook Multnomah for free in exchange for an honest review.
