Jesus in Me by Anne Graham Lotz

Jesus in Me: Experiencing the Holy Spirit as a Constant CompanionABOUT THE BOOK

The internationally recognized Bible teacher and daughter of Billy Graham unpacks key biblical truths wrapped in personal insights to reveal how the presence of the Holy Spirit shapes the daily life of a Jesus follower.

In Jesus in Me, Anne Graham Lotz draws on her rich biblical knowledge as well as her personal story--including her recent cancer diagnosis--to help us understand that the Holy Spirit is not a magic genie, a flame of fire, or a vague feeling. He is a Person who prays for us, guides us in our relationships and decisions, comforts us in pain, and stays by our side at all times. In this seminal teaching, she explores seven key aspects of the Holy Spirit that will revolutionize how you understand and relate to this vital third Person in the Trinity.

As Anne writes, "One of my deepest, richest joys has been discovering by experience who the Holy Spirit is in every step of my life's journey. Each name that He has been given--Helper, Comforter, Advocate, Intercessor, Counselor, Strengthener, and Standby--reveals another aspect of His beautiful character and has provoked in me a deep love for the One who is my constant Companion...Jesus in me."

Discover how to better love and rely on the person of the Holy Spirit--and embrace how much He loves you.

MY THOUGHTS.....


After reading this book I now understand why Anne Graham Lotz is considered such a great author and speaker. She has been able to help me understand The Holy Spirit in a way that I never had before. I have been a Christian for many years but I still had questions about this third part of the Trinity. Lotz uses her battle with cancer and her overwhelming assurance that The Holy Spirit is always with her to better explain this amazing presence in our own lives.

Jesus in Me It has twenty-seven chapters that have been divided into seven parts and the first part is devoted to the names given to The Holy Spirit. He is known as our Helper, Comforter, Advocate, Intercessor, Counselor, Strengthener, and Standby and we are shown why He has these names. The other six sections deal with His presence, power and purpose and Lotz truly enlightens with her understanding and knowledge. She reminds us that whether we are a new believer or a mature Christian, we can deepen our relationship with Jesus Christ by truly understanding the Holy Spirit. This book is perfect for personal bible study but it would also be a wonderful resource for a group study.

I received an advanced reader copy of this book from Multnomah and a positive review was not a requirement. These are my own thoughts.

My rating: 5 of 5 stars
