Product Description

The Christian life is impossible without the Holy Spirit, but many of us manage to live without His power in our lives. In Spirit Rising, pastor of the Brooklyn Tabernacle, Jim Cymbala, seeks to reintroduce the often misunderstood third person of the Trinity. Many Christians fall into one of two camps: those who strongly emphasize the Holy Spirit tend to undervalue Biblical teaching; while other evangelicals are sold out on the Bible, but tend to undervalue the experience of the Spirit. Through a blend of solid Biblical teaching and by sharing the testimonies of those who have been transformed by the Spirit's presence in their lives, Cymbala shows how embracing the move of the Spirit is vital to living a life of spiritual power and victory.

Publisher's Description

For some of us being a Christian is harder than it should be. Discouraged, anxious, worn down, we wonder what happened to the power and the joy that Jesus promised. Jim Cymbala believes that many of us are missing something vital. Christianity, he says, for even the best-intentioned person or church, is impossible without the Holy Spirit. You can have regular devotions, great preaching, a strong emphasis on the Bible, a great worship team, and a congregation that is trying, but if you aren’t vitally in touch with God’s Spirit, you are missing out on the life God has for you. The Holy Spirit, he points out, is God’s agent on earth. Yet he is the least understood, least preached about, and least discussed member of the Trinity. That is sad, because without him, our spiritual lives will always become dry, mechanical, and a struggle. Too often, the body of Christ is divided into two sides. One side stresses the Word of God, separating itself from what it views as the emotional fanaticism often linked to those emphasizing the Holy Spirit. The other side is sometimes known for drifting into unbiblical manifestations and unorthodox teaching while attributing it all to the Spirit of God. But the Christianity we see in Scripture is both grounded in the Word and full of the Spirit. With stunning stories of how God is working in the lives of people and churches today and biblical teaching about the Holy Spirit, Jim Cymbala invites you to experience God in a fresh and vital way. Nothing else will change our prayer life, our study of God’s word, and our worship more than opening our hearts to the Spirit. If we want power, confidence, joy, peace, and more love in our lives, then we need a better understanding of how and why the Spirit moves so we can join him there.

    It is unfortunate that there aren't more churches that are experiencing the working of the Holy Spirit in their ministry. I believe we are grieving the Holy Spirit in not commiting ourselves to Him and the result of such a commitment is what is evident in the work of the Brooklyn Tabernacle as todl in thus book.

    First of all I thank the Lord for using Pastor Cymbala...

    Without the leading of the holy spirit this book would not have come to fruition.

    My prayer is that the church of Jesus Christ today be filled with the holy spirit to a new level.

    Oh how we need to tap into the holy spirit and this book is an illustration of such biblical principles.

    The book is good, and the subject matter is of my utmost interest, butI find it hard to stay focussed and some parts are repetitive which makes th ebook too long. the subjec matter is very good indeed..but the book is too long for me I think and it is taking me a long time to get through it..to keep my attention. Sorry

    Looking for a book to read one day, on Christianbook.com, I happened to see Spirit Rising was on special. I thought: "Oh neat, a book on the Holy Spirit. I've always wanted to learn more about that." (since in most Christian circles the talk is usually about Jesus or God, but not on the Holy Spirit.) I ordered it, because I wanted to learn more on a subject I admit I'm not as experienced in as I probably should be. When I received this book, I thought an endorsement from Francis Chan was especially interesting so I began reading Jim Cymbala's book.

    Spirit Rising: Tapping into the Power of the Holy Spirit is a book, which as you probably are able to imagine it is, about the Holy Spirit. Jim opens the book on expressing a thought which I expressed earlier in this review: various Christian circles neither understand nor talk enough about the role of The Holy Spirit and that needs to change. The meat of the focus for Mr. Cymbala's book is The Holy Spirit, his church in Brooklyn, and testimonies from a few of his own parishioners. Does Jim speak of The Holy Spirit in a heretical way? And how insightful is Mr. Cymbala's book concerning The Holy Spirit? Spirit Rising does a good job getting started on helping a Christian become more in tune with The Holy Spirit, but it is a light dusting of the surface readers are craving.

    I am glad Mr. Cymbala did not promote anything heretical within his book, because the very phrase: "Tapping into the power of The Holy Spirit" is a risky phrase some might misinterpret as a piece of lingo from the heretical Immergant Church movement. I also appreciate the testimonies his parishioners gave for Spirit Rising, because some are very inspiring to read. My favorite testimony to read was concerning the woman immigrant from Latin America; though at times sad the ending is encouraging. Though these things are good, I also felt there could have been more to this book, because there were some unanswered questions... The book seems primarily focused more on trying to convince you into agreeing The Holy Spirit is a neglected teaching and ought to be further pursued through the example of his church in New York, rather THAN actually teaching you things about The Holy Spirit itself... Though I learned some things while reading Mr. Cymbala's book, I was a little disappointed that time was more spent on talking about Brooklyn Tabernacle than The Holy Spirit itself...

    It was hard to look for enough info on tapping into the Holy Spirit. It just seemed so mixed up about things I wasn't interested in I enjoy getting right to the point about the Holy Spirit. I was distracting
