As you know, I have begun previewing books for Bethany House Publishers; generally I choose Christian Fiction but last month I was given several titles on Spiritual Growth and I choose this one. I will say I was influenced reading that the Forward was written by a pastor I am familiar with, Bill Johnson of Bethel Church in Redding Ca. My review is below and I did not receive any payment for previewing this book.
An Invitation to the Supernatural Life by Michele Perry
I found the title "An Invitation to the Supernatural Life"
intriguing and I feel this book truly is an invitation. If you are
hungering and thirsting after a deeper walk with Christ and longing to
have answers to questions such as "Why do physical miracles still happen
in other parts of the country but not in the US?" answered, I would
encourage you to find this book and read it. I checked the scripture
verses quoted, for accuracy, and found them so.
Michele Perry is a missionary in So. Sudan and shares her life story with us; beginning at a very early
age, she began to have encounters with the Lord. Michele chronicles her
journey of walking with Christ in the Spirit and her growth and
understanding of the powerful work He still does today in the lives of
believers. Will the Holy Spirit force Himself on us? No, for He is
gentle; this book continually stressed the importance of focusing on the
Giver and not the gifts. Each chapter has questions at the end and a
very touching prayer for the reader; but I must say this book was hard
to put down. I found myself wanting more and more of Michele's story.
Her chapters weave her time between her life in the U.S. and her life
in So.Sudan with hundreds of children who call her mama.
would challenge even the most conservative Christians to read this book
with an open mind and see what the Lord might have for you.
This is a book that I will keep; it is on the same level as some of the greats I have read. I would encourage you to get this book and read Michele's story for yourself.
I need to tell you that I have not received any payment or compensation for previewing this book.
Enjoy your day. Noreen
