Spirit Rising by Jim Cymbala

spirit_risingThe work and ministry of the Holy Spirit is clearly a passion of Jim Cymbala in this book and you can’t help from catching the vision from him.

The opening personal story is absolutely amazing and gripping and definitely reveals the power of the Holy Spirit. And throughout most of this book, Cymbala continues to make his points through the life stories of people that have come through the doors of his Brooklyn Tabernacle church. Just like the rest of his books, the testimonies are what shine.

At the same time I was disappointed that there was so little Biblical teaching. He does spend some time teaching in the Word and his focus is always refreshing but not anything groundbreaking or “meaty.” He hasn’t really added any new insights as he did so effectively with “Fresh Wind, Fresh Fire.”

That said, Cymbala more than makes up for it through the life stories and as you read this you will be inspired and blessed as you witness God change lives in unbelievable ways.
