Format: Hardcover
"Only the Holy Spirit can make the things of Christ real and alive to people," writes Jim Cymbala in his new book, Spirit Rising. As Francis Chan puts it in the Foreword, "This book is not about asking for the Holy Spirit's help. It is about asking Him to take over."

With the passion of an Old Testament prophet, Cymbala writes with a Biblical foundation and stories of life transformation. The power of the Holy Spirit is not a phenomenon of 2,000 years ago, but the potential transforming power of the Holy Spirit in one's life today. The book is divided into 3 parts:

1. God's Agent on Earth

In this first part, Cymbala looks at who the Holy Spirit is. He sees the Holy Spirit as being "underappreciated and underpreached in the twenty-first-century church." He seeks to give the Holy Spirit "His due".

I appreciate his emphasis on the work of the Spirit. The Bible is clear about the transforming work of the Holy Spirit in one's life. The activity of the Spirit is not limited to the stories of the Scriptures, but are seen in the transforming work He does through the Scriptures in changing lives.

2. When God's Spirit Moves

When God's Spirit moves the Word of God comes alive in the lives of people. Joy becomes a reality in life no matter the circumstances and Cymbala uses some dire circumstances in people's lives to show how joy still came through.

When God's Spirit moves there is power and there is love. As God's people gather in prayer and immerse themselves in the Word, they hear the Spirit speak and they see the Spirit move.

3. When We Surrender to the Holy Spirit

Remember this is book is not about getting the Holy Spirit's help in life, it is surrendering to the Holy Spirit's work.

I truly thank God for allowing me to read this book at this time. I feel so recharged and blessed by it. Pastor Cymbala truly reminds us of the importance of the Holy Spirit controlling our lives. I love the testimonies, I was truly blown away by the stories they touched me deeply, some even made me cry. I encourage everyone to read this book it is truly a life changing book.

Format: Hardcover
Ok, I got my undergrad and grad degree in theology. Now that and a nickel will still not get you a cup of coffee. However, my undergrad was in a Baptist college. One day they asked Cymbala to come and speak to the whole college about prayer.

In short, Baptist and Charismatic is a match made in hell, fraught with the potential to explode. (If you don't know, Baptists believe Pentecostals are basically crazy or possessed.)

So anyway, Cymbala begins to share about a life changing experience of a man who was a drug dealer and abused his wife. The man was slowly and dramatically changed by the Spirit of God during a service.

As Cymbala shared in front of 5000 people, you could culpably feel the Spirit of God begin to move through the auditorium. I have not before nor since had that experience.

Jim Cymbala is just the vessel, however the Spirit moves in him. He is on the front lines of ghettos and violent neighborhoods. I have all of his books and they all bring me to tears about what is possible in Christ. Read Spirit Rising, you won't find a better guide.

Format: Hardcover
Jim Cymbala, pastor of the successful Brooklyn Tabernacle, issues a call to revivify the actual working power of the Holy Spirit in the contemporary Christian church. Cymbala (aided by his co-writer Jennifer Schuchmann) intersperses personal reflections with the stories of people from his congregation who have been affected in tangible ways by the power of prayer and spiritual intervention. Cymbala argues for an understanding of the Holy Spirit that makes literal change in the world and empowers people to change their lives in real, tangible ways. He provides stories of miraculous rainstorms in Pakistan, exorcisms of poor and afflicted refugees, and above all the unshakable power of love. Cymbala contrasts the effervescent joy of the stories of the early church with the often cold and lifeless practices of the modern church, both "conservative" and "liberal." Ultimately, Cymbala invites Christians to reclaim the power of the Holy Spirit to provide both joy and fellowship to a fragmented and broken world.

I am often frustrated that theology devolves into looking for parts of the "other side's" argument that one doesn't agree with and then dismissing everything that person - or party - has to say. So I was pleasantly surprised at how life-giving and affirming Pastor Cymbala's book was despite some of my theological differences with him. I'm sure Pastor Cymbala would call me a "liberal." Being a PhD student who is writing a dissertation on the Holy Spirit, I found Cymbala's constant denigration of intellectuals and professors a bit frustrating - I got the point (ordinary people can be spiritual too) but didn't need the downgrading of my personal mission.
