This is a great book on the Holy Spirit! The Church has done a great dis-service to God by not allowing the Holy Spirit to lead us. The Church Age is also the age when the Holy Spirit is drawing the Body of Christ out from the world and preparing the Church to be one with the head (Jesus Christ). Brother Gordon explains the problems with Ecclesiastic, Presbyterian, and Congregational authority. The Holy Spirit should be leading the Church...NOT the clergy, the elders, or the congregation! This book is an in depth, plain explanation of the Ministry of the Spirit. This book is still as fresh and enlightening as if it were written this year. I encourage every Christian to read it.

Author of the Day

Graceley Knox & D.D. Miers
USA Today bestselling authors, Graceley Knox and D.D. Miers may be long-lost sisters, but their moms continue to deny it. They are most definitely the co-writers of the Kresova Vampire Harem series, as well as a multitude of other upcoming projects they can't wait to share with readers. Together they tend to share the same brain, finish each other's thoughts, laugh way too hard at inappropriate comments, drink enough coffee to qualify for an intervention, and talk about their fur babies. As our Authors ot the Day, they talk about their latest book, Girl Bitten, reveal what it takes to co-write books, explain what they do with new ideas and much more.
