TAN: The Holy Spirit is essential when it comes to the work of the . TAN: First of all is the Holy Spirit’s power

The Holy Spirit is called the Counselor, Comforter, Helper, or Advocate in John 14:16–17. TAN: First of all is the Holy Spirit’s power. As Christians we understand that the Spirit is essential to life and ministry and we are commanded to be continuously filled with the Spirit (Eph 5:18). The issue is-and I’ve become consumed with this-is spirituality: every minute you have-whether it’s at a stoplight or for 10 minutes before the next therapy session, not be so preoccupied with what’s happening but be open to the Holy Spirit-that’s what the Spirit is there for!

The style of writing and she kept it very simple and short so she didn't loose my attention. yet backed up her teachings with scriptures.

’With the mind of a scholar and the heart of a pastor, Mark Fuller explores the Person and work of the Holy Spirit. Few Biblical truths have been so neglected and, at the same time, so misconstrued. This book will preach!’--J.K. Warrick, General SuperintendentChurch of the Nazarene’Great book!! I truly enjoyed reading it and found it to be very valuable for my life and understanding of the power of the Holy Spirit and how He wants to live in and through my life.’--Dan Martin, PresidentMount Vernon Nazarene UniversityThe Holy Spirit is not someone to fear.If you’re a Christian, He is part of you.There is a current explosion of interest in the spiritual realm by people from all religious backgrounds. Yet the Holy Spirit is the least known and understood member of the Godhead. Because we fear what we do not understand, many of us have chosen to simply avoid the subject entirely.The Holy Spirit makes real in us what Jesus Christ has done on our behalf when He died on the cross and rose to life again. A personal relationship with Him is not only possible, but critical to understanding and experiencing God’s purpose for life.In this account, Fuller corrects popular misconceptions about the Holy Spirit. Consumed will educate you about the Holy Spirit and look at what the Bible teaches. See the difference He can make in your life and discover a dimension of God you’ve never experienced before.

I had to keep reminding myself that the subtitle of this book was An Introduction to the Holy Spirit. It seemed my own knowledge and experience were pushed and pulled with affirmation and exasperation as I read my way through Consumed. I don't know if this is an indicator that I liked or disliked the book...I do know my reactions to it weren't lukewarm.

This is a short book (just under eighty pages of actual reading) and a very quick read at that. The information shared is not new and it is not exhaustive; it is as advertised, an introduction. Fuller has arranged Consumed in six chapters and follows a very normative and methodical approach in sharing his subject. The chapter titles are as follows: Who is the Holy Spirit?, What is the Work of the Holy Spirit?, How Can I Be Filled with the Holy Spirit?, What About the Gifts of the Spirit?, How Can I Bear Fruit of the Holy Spirit?, and What is the Impact of a Spirit-filled Life?

Fuller answers his question in chapter one, "Who is the Holy Spirit?" in a myth versus fact format. I didn't really connect with this approach. While there might be some helpful points made in the way he presented the person of the Holy Spirit, it still seemed somewhat restrictive from my perspective. It seemed to me this method presents me with a "God is" and "God is not" encounter. I'm sure there is value in "debunking myths" and establishing truths about the Holy Spirit, but as I read the first chapter I was uncomfortable with how the Holy Spirit was characterized...not that I read anything that I was in disagreement with. I have found in my studies, there is a very rich history and theology about the mysterious nature of the Holy Spirit, I would have liked to experience some of that richness as opposed to a "fact-finding mission."

The tone of the first chapter more or less sets the tone for the rest of the chapters; everything presented seemed clinical and textbook flavored to me. I didn't read anything that I overtly disagreed with or found fault with, but I felt as though I was reading a "sanitized" exploration of the working of the Holy Spirit (I remind myself that this is an introduction).

I think of all the chapters, I appreciated How Can I be Filled with the Spirit the most. The reason for my favor of this chapter is primarily related to my own bias and belief. Fuller teaches that being "filled" with the Spirit is a divine imperative and not a Christian option on the path of discipleship. Additionally, he teaches that dying to our self is a prerequisite requirement to becoming filled with the Spirit. I wholeheartedly agree with this position. I also liked chapter five, How Can I Bear the Fruit of the Holy Spirit? I found some points that I might "split hairs" over, but overall I was in solid agreement with the understanding that we, as believers following Christ, partner with the Holy Spirit to bear fruit in the character of Jesus Christ.

I think if there were any suggestions for improving this Introduction to the Holy Spirit, I would offer the following ideas: (1) provide a resource list and bibliography for further studies. (2) Broaden the spectrum of influence--provide some historical context from the early church's experience with the Holy Spirit using writings from the church fathers. (3) Provide some practical explanation and teaching about living in partnership with the Holy Spirit; He counsels, but how? The Holy Spirit comforts us in our grief, but what does that comfort look like? He teaches and guides, is helpful, but what does this practically look like in my life?

In closing this review, I'd like to say again that I did not find anything that I overtly disagreed with. As an introduction, I think the book is fine, although I mention what I feel could bring improvement. I might recommend this book for someone, but would probably include others with hopes to provide a more robust explanation and introduction to the Holy Spirit.

This book gave me deeper understanding of the Holy Spirit. Mark Fuller did an amazing job of not only defining the Holy Spirit through some great comparisons, but using scripture showing how the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit are one entity. Highly recommended and I love it!

I had a hard copy of this book so I knew it was good. I loaned it to someone. They liked it too. So the next one I purchased was for my Kindle. I love Amazon. I have been happy with all my purchases
