Although this type of life has to be experienced in order to be understood, Rees Howells does offer some compelling insight on how the Holy Ghost dealt with the very inner reaches of his heart in order to teach him obedience. Mr. Howells is very candid about how, and in what ways his flesh fought the leading of the spirit; how he had to do as the apostle Paul admonishied and "cast down reasonings and bring every thought to the obedience of Christ.
This is a wonderful book that can be enormously edifying, whether you are reading it as I did, as part of your own personal devotional time with God, or in a group Bible study.
Put simply, if you want to read a book about being a true disciple of Jesus, about what it means to count the cost, take up your cross and follow Him, Rees Howells: Intercessor is the book for you. But a word of caution: the type of life set forth in this book is not the run-of-the-mill, intellectual Christianity that so predominates our popular culture in the 21st Century. This book is a call to a rugged faith, a call to "earnestly contend for the faith that was once delivered to the saints."
Read it prayerfully, and get ready to be "transformed by the renewing of your mind." For this book will compel the serious Christian to "present your body as a living sacrifice to God..."
I disagree with the reviewer who said that this book has a theological problem. The things Rees did (like not wearing a hat and growing his hair long) are things the Lord asked him to do. They are things that he didn't just decide to do on his own. I think that is an important distinction to make. I also believe it is impossible to effectively intercede unless you walk a mile in their shoes. There were occassions when Rees did this in a literal sense. But it seems to me, that he did it more often in a spiritual sense.
I found myself identifying a lot with Rees as I read. The man was not perfect, he definitely had faults. I don't mean to imply that I think he didn't. But the Lord used him in a mighty way and I think Rees has things to teach us all.
I highly recommend this book to anyone who wants to break out of complacent Christianity. This book will change your life and your relationship with the Lord, if you read it with an open mind and an open, teachable heart. This is a book to read slowly. You will want to take time to digest and meditate on it. I would also recommend reading it more than once. I have often found that I always gain new insights on the second or third time through. This is one book you will want to glean every possible insight from. There is so much here.
This is one of the most life-changing books I have ever read.
