Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com Review

The Holy Spirit: Activating God's Power in Your Life by Billy Graham begins with a very simple statement: "Man has two great spiritual needs. One is for forgiveness. The other is for goodness." Graham then affirms that "God heard that first cry for help, that cry for forgiveness, and answered it at Calvary" and that "God also heard our second cry ... and answered it at Pentecost." The Holy Spirit, Graham writes, is "the source of power who meets our need to escape from the miserable weakness that grips us," even after one has given one's life to Christ. "He gives us the power to be truly good."

In clear, concise prose, Graham then walks readers through biblical passages that teach about the Holy Spirit. He also describes some related concepts and experiences that are widely misunderstood, such as baptism with the spirit and sins against the Holy Spirit. And he gives readers a solid outline of the signs and fruits of the Spirit (such as love, joy, peace, patience, and kindness). Graham's book may be especially helpful for new Christians, but it will also serve as a helpful reminder to longtime believers. "No person can seek sincerely the cleansing and blessing of the Holy Spirit, and remain the same afterward," Graham promises. This promise is sufficiently grounded in scripture, and offered with such authoritative serenity that many readers will find real comfort here. --Kevin Attwood

From the Back Cover

An informative, clarifying, and unifying book on the Holy Spirit

Who is the Holy Spirit and what does he do? The world-renowned evangelist Billy Graham offers a sensitive and comprehensive portrait of the much discussed but often-misunderstood member of the Trinity. The Holy Spirit came to empower God’s people and transform their lives, yet so often the doctrine of the Holy Spirit causes division in the church. It is crucial to develop a genuinely biblical understand of the Third Person of the Trinity—and to experience an authentic outpouring of his power. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

I love how Billy Graham writes!! It is so simplistic and so very easy to comprehend. I also love how he gets to the point in the introduction when he says, "Man has two great spiritual needs. One is for forgiveness. The other is for Goodness." Then he doesn't stop there. He then informs us that, "God heard the cry for forgiveness, and answered it at Calvary. God sent his only Son into the world to die for our sins, so that we might be forgiven." This is what Billy has taught for years!! That salvation comes through faith in Jesus Christs' sacrifice 2000 years ago on an old rugged cross!! Oh, but it gets better. He then goes further to point out to you that salvation "is for everyone who reaches out and accepts God's gift by receiving Jesus Christ as his Lord and Saviour." Space does not allow for a complete and utter review of this amazing CHRISTIAN book. But one thing is for sure: it isn't about spiritual enlightenment. It isn't about reaching a spiritual high. It isn't about using any other way to activate the "revolutionary power" of the Holy Spirit any other way than by complete and utter repentance of sin and trust in Christ. Truly a wonderful and amazing book about the power of the Holy Spirit that is only inherited by CHRISTIANS who serve ONE GOD, and ONE GOD ONLY.

This wonderful book was a great comfort to me. The things Graham covers in this book make good sense, and he writes with authority. I think that many of us do not grasp the full potential of our Christianity, and the insights this book offers makes you think. Graham's writing is so gentle and moving.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
As if attending a crusade event in person, the reader will find the always compassionate, passionate, and caring Billy Graham pleading for unbelievers to believe, believers to come to the fullness promised to them as children of God, and for those needing clarity on this important subject to hit THE BOOK and discover through the Holy Spirit what they need. As I read, I kept thinking, "I miss Dr. Graham." Then, I turned on the TV and one of his "classic" crusade presentations was on a religious channel. You sometimes forget what a great teacher, preacher, evangelist and pastor he was.

GREAT, GREAT book that will bless, challenge, and inspire you to reach higher in your walk with the Lord.

We Christians are always speaking of The Trinity. I went my whole life so far--66 years--without really understanding the Holy Spirit and what He is all about--the answer is in Billy Graham's book The Holy Spirit. It is easy reading and all just fell in place after I read it. I have placed it in a prominent place to remind me to reread it periodically. He's one of the blessed three-in-one--better get to know Him!

Wonderful, thoughtfully written explanation of the Holy Spirit and how He can be, wants to be a part of our lives. Just what you would expect from Dr. Graham. I sent one to my Baptist deacon father and he asked for 3 more copies for friends.

This book opened up the Bible for me and made me look at my own life and behavior from a whole new viewpoint-that of the Holy Spirit. If you have questions about who He is, what His role is in the world and in one's life, then this is the book you must read. The work is backed up with Scripture and the integrity of Billy Graham's ministry.
