Jesus in Me: Experiencing the Holy Spirit as a Constant Companion

Anne Graham Lotz. Multnomah, $23.99 (288p) ISBN 978-0-525-65104-8
Evangelist Lotz (Just Give Me Jesus) reveals how the Holy Spirit guides her in this hopeful work intended to help Christian readers deepen their faith. Eloquently intertwining biblical and personal stories (such as an epiphanic moment at age nine when, seeing a cross in the film King of Kings, she understood Jesus’s divine sacrifice), Lotz, the daughter of the late pastor Billy Graham, offers examples of how she has tried to listen to and follow God’s plan for her life. She reveals heart-wrenching details of her husband’s death and how the Holy Spirit guided her through that experience as a “helper” and a “comforter,” as well as her battle with breast cancer, when she leaned on Jesus as “the Counselor” to endure: “the Counselor didn’t just whisper; He seemed to speak loudly to me from Deuteronomy 29:29: ‘The secret things belong to the Lord our God, but the things revealed belong to us and to our children.’ ” With plentiful biblical references, Lotz encourages those who already rely on Jesus to step into a purpose-filled life led by the Holy’s Spirit’s guidance. Christians who desire to live a life of greater purpose to glorify God will be awed by Lotz’s impassioned exploration of the role of the Holy Spirit in her life. (Oct.)
