Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

The elusive "fruits of the Spirit" are not character qualities attainable only by the holiest among us, according to authors Trask (general superintendent of the Assemblies of God) and Goodall (an AG administrator who is executive editor of the Pentecostal journal Enrichment). They write that Bible meditation, prayers and ordinary persistence in developing godly habits are the practical measures Christians assume as they model their daily lives after that of Jesus Christ. Both men assure readers that God desires an intimate relationship with them, and that within that relational framework the Holy Spirit tenderly transforms people's minds, emotions and actions so that their lives consistently evidence spiritual fruit. The co-authors (The Battle, The Blessing, The Choice) effectively use personal anecdotes and everyday scenarios in their 11-chapter text to demonstrate how those rich in spiritual fruit are able to overcome life's most adverse problems. Each chapter discusses a different fruit from Galatians 5:22: love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control. Exactly what does God's fruit look like? The authors highlight "People fruit" (those we have introduced to Christ), "Giving fruit" (gifts of time, energy and money), "Gospel fruit" (sharing the gospel of Christ) and "Praise fruit" (worshipping God). This text is an excellent road map of hope and direction for anyone who wants to experience a deeper Christian spirituality. (Aug.)

Format: Paperback
This book was written by taking many references from other writers. It was well written and helped me quite a bit in understanding, and bette yet, applying the fruits of the spirit to my life. God convicted me to seek out a book that covered this topic, helped me find the right one for me, and now I hope to help you with this review.

Format: Paperback
I have to say this book is absolutely terrific. It is written in layman's terms and is simple to read and understand. It is exciting to see the scriptures that are quoted and the information that is being delivered. It has been so helpful to me to understand all the areas of the "Fruit of the Spirit." I have grown immensely just in reading the content. My understanding of Jesus' character has blossomed. I would highly recommend everyone to read this book. You don't even have to be interested specifically in the fruit of the Spirit to get enjoyment and knowledge from this book.

Wow. This book was helpful for me and my congregation. We are smack dab in the middle of a sermon series on the fruits of the Spirit, nine weeks about the gifts of the spirit and this book has been tremendous for all of our preachers and has been incredible for our people because of the depth of our preaching using concrete examples that the book helped bring out. This book is very well written, easy to understand and brings depth into any relationship with God. I would recommend this book to anyone.

I'm using this book in a small group bible study and we are loving it. We spent the first three meetings discussing the Introduction which is power packed with great foundational information for moving forward in discussing the individual Fruit of the Spirit.

This book is a really a blessing to read and study. It brings you back to your Christian principals. Every Chapter covers a different Christian tenet and covers it well. It reminds you of things that you know, if you have ever done any studying of the Bible. Even if you haven't studied the Bible, you are taught things.

Easy to read. Each chapter stands on its own so you don't need to read the entire book to catch up. Numerous references to the bible and other books to spur further research on a topic.
