Book Review ~ Jesus In Me: Experiencing the Holy Spirit as a Constant Companion By Anne Graham Lotz

About the Book


In Jesus in Me, Anne Graham Lotz draws on her rich biblical knowledge as well as her personal journey—including her recent cancer diagnosis—to help us understand that the Holy Spirit is not a magic genie, a flame of fire, or a vague feeling. He is a Person who prays for us, guides us in our relationships and decisions, comforts us in pain, and stays by our side at all times. In this seminal teaching, she explores seven key aspects of the Holy Spirit that will revolutionize how you understand and relate to this vital third Person in the Trinity.

As Anne writes, “One of my deepest, richest joys has been discovering by experience who the Holy Spirit is in every step of my life’s journey. Each name that He has been given—Helper, Comforter, Advocate, Intercessor, Counselor, Strengthener, and Standby—reveals another aspect of His beautiful character and has provoked in me a deep love for the One who is my constant Companion . . . Jesus in me.”

Discover how to better love and rely on the person of the Holy Spirit—and embrace how much He loves you through His presence, power, and provision in our daily lives.

Review


Lotz’s depiction of the Holy Spirit is of One who is a real person that she has come to know and has a personal relationship with, and, she longs to teach others to do the same. Chapter after chapter, Lotz teaches on the character of the Holy Spirit as revealed in Scripture, in a way that a reader seeking to understand His role in our lives and in the world, can prayerfully meditate and receive His gifts and help, just as Jesus promised. Letting us know in a fundamental and intimate way that we’re not alone, and that all that God has called us to do, is absolutely possible—from the point of call to the moment of finish—through counsel, grace, love and power, is absolutely breathtaking. Lotz’s Jesus In Me does well to remind us that the work started by Jesus and the life He’s called us to live is possible because, by the powerful presence of the Holy Spirit in each and every child of God, Jesus, the Son of God, remains in and with us, and so we’re not just children of God who overcome, we’re more than conquerors.

*Though I offer this review to the public, it is my opinion and simply that. Much appreciation to Waterbrook Multnomah for a free copy in exchange for my honest opinion.
