Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

Although Jesus encouraged his followers to draw strength from him, the "living water" of God, most Christians are content to occasionally dip their toes into that living water. In contrast, Edwards boldly exhorts them to settle for nothing less than complete and continuing immersion. Unveiling the hidden reasons why so many followers of Christ subsist on just enough God to get by, Edwards (Revolution Within; Experiencing Christ Within) exposes such mediocre fellowship in a brutally honest way. Citing the early Christians as prime examples of those who were completely dependent upon God's supernatural intervention and power, Edwards notes that these believers exhibited joy that couldn't be explained, peace that transcended their worldly events and a love so genuine it couldn't be matched or imitated. All these elements combined to create spirit-led, God-empowered Christians who rocked the first-century world with the message of Jesus' redemptive work on the cross. Edwards's pet name for such effective witnesses is "heavenly connoisseurs"-those who delight in God's presence and seek after him with such passion that every other pursuit falls by the wayside. The book is not just emotionally charged hoopla: Edwards sets out practical application parameters for keeping priorities intact, understanding each individual's intrinsic value as a child of God, weeding out sinful habits and enlarging the vision for this journey of faith. His lively, engaging, and worthwhile prose will find its place among other well-received evangelical writers such as John Eldredge and Max Lucado (who provides the foreword here).

From the Inside Flap

God?s passionate power is about to burst through the floodgates of your soul.

You want to influence others for God. To experience more of the abundant power Jesus promised. To live a life overflowing with God?s presence. To make a difference in the world.

So why do these desires go unfulfilled? Where can you find the resources you need to experience the exhilaration of utter dependence on God?

In Releasing the Rivers Within, Dwight Edwards reveals that all the good God wants to dispense through your life finds its origin in the indwelling supernatural resources He has already implanted within you.

As Jesus told us in John 7:38, every believer has ?rivers of living waters? within, pressing forward and awaiting release. And as you open yourself up and allow God?s life to flow through you, you?ll bring the greatest glory to Him, the most good to others, and the deepest satisfaction to yourself.

Discover the resources God has placed within you. Release the rivers within?and experience life as God intended it: filled to overflowing.

Format: Paperback
"It's really a 100-100 situation--all God through all of us....True ministry is all God's work from beginning to end, done through all of us. Or in the image of rivers within, it's God's flood through our floodgates." --Releasing the Rivers Within, page 95

In a follow-up of his previous book, "Revolution Within" Dwight Edwards continues his covenant look at what God does in the life of his kingdom on earth through his church and his people.
If you are beginning to wonder if a 'sin management' gospel is not the whole story, you might be right!! Read Revolution Within and follow up with Rivers.

This book is awesome! Not only is this book biblically based,
it's a breath of fresh air. This book discusses how all the
resources we need for an abundant Christian life are already
inside of us if we have the Holy Spirit (and all true Christians
do!) But it also makes the point the the way to access those resources is not through self-effort and trying really hard. Also, I like that Edwards is not afraid to deal with touchy issues like legalism, tradition, personal taste and cultural expressions of Christianity. Rather than making the subject of depending on God and surrendering to His will sound boring, Edwards instead makes it sound exciting and something worth getting pumped up about. I can't say enough good things about this book. Every Christian should read this book!

This book has been incredibly helpful to me in fleshing out my "new life in Christ". It not only gives me a hunger for experiencing God to the fullest,but shows me how without steps or formulas. It also teaches me how to encourage others to experience the same. Even though I have been a growing believer for 40 years, this book has been a fountain of hope.
