Jesus, Continued by J.D. Greear

I enjoyed Greear's other work about stop asking Jesus into your heart. He has a way to grab attention with book titles. This one is similar: Why the Spirit inside you is better than Jesus beside you.

Well let's just dig in and see what Greear unpacks!

This book is a treasure trove of teaching on the Holy Spirit. You might not hear too many sermons on the Holy Spirit and you may be a bit nervous because there's been this almost spooky supernatural tag-along for some time.

Greear unloads the weight with three parts: The Missing Spirit (dealing with the lack of understanding), Experiencing The Holy Spirit (looking at all the areas a person can experience this third person of the Trinity; such as the Bible, Church, and our circumstances), and Seeking the Holy Spirit (what exactly are we looking for?)

There can be no doubt that Greear has a talent when it comes to explaining biblical reality. It may seem like it was an area of Christianity lost due to evangelical's strong push for Bible and "soul winning", but this is a book everyone can sink their teeth into.

I appreciated his candor and truth-telling.

This book was provided for review, at no cost, by Zondervan Publishing.
