Questioning Life

 

“What do I do with my life?” “Where do I go from here?” Questions are asked and answered in this deeply moving collection of writings by gifted believers.

 

Featuring best-selling Bethel-Redding authors including Bill Johnson and Paul Manwaring.

 

An Apple for the Road is a compilation of hidden treasures of courage—dreams revealed, fears exposed, and failures painfully bared—the stories are as inspiring as they are convicting. The testimonies will challenge you to press into God for greater manifestations of His divine presence.

 

Written from perspectives of those who believe in the supernatural and walk supernaturally, you may be venturing into unfamiliar spiritual territory. An Apple for the Road gathers nine leaders from the Bethel School of Supernatural Ministry to share their wisdom about the natural and practical aspects of living supernaturally.

    This book is a glimpse into some of the Bethel School of Ministr

    This book is a glimpse into some of the Bethel School of Ministry's students' experiences in their walk with the Lord. It's a great book to read in small snipets of time because you can pick up at any chapter. Fun to read each author's experience and different flavors. for destiny image

    It is REALLY an encouraging and inspiring book. I like it becaus

    It is REALLY an encouraging and inspiring book. I like it because of:

    - variety of subjects it deals with that are common to every believer.

    - practical, experience-based, full of Godly advice stories. It's not just sharing personal stories but they interlink with the truths and verses taken from the Bible. I needed a book from the Bethel team that would show more detailed life experiences but I also appreciate it that you preserve (mostly) the balance between the subjective experiences and the Word of God - I mean not only theologically, but the style of giving the testimonies: not just reporting the events and experiences but also sharing God's wisdom, advice and authors' personal encouragement to the reader. It's awesome. It's practical, understandable, aplicable. And it works! I started to pursue God and ask for more at once and got my little personal revival!
    There were some passages (especially in the first part) that I read almost breathless, longing to have such an experience too for myself. They are really Holy Spirit inspired; they arouse the hunger for more of God and real encounters with God. My, I really liked them!

    - The final chapter by Bill Johnson is a magnificent idea. Like a delicious, healthy dessert after a good meal. The wisdom of this man of God astounds me - I'm glad a couple of his books have been released in Poland recently.

    - I also like the honesty and sincerity of the authors. I do bless them for it! In the "Bethel culture" their spiritual experiences are accepted and normal but being saved for over 20 years all I was taught was "no sensations, feelings, spiritual encounters and the like". Believers in Poland (and wherever the same phobias were forced) have been robbed of magnificent encounters with the Holy Spirit. I hope the book "An apple for the road" will open the eyes of some true seekers of God's presence. Now being a pastor myself, I try to encourage others to re-think their attitudes toward the supernatural presence and acts of the Holy Spirit.

    - I must also say that I like the language of the book. It makes no difficulty for a foreigner to read and appreciate it. :-) No bombastic words, elaborate sentences, examples and comparisons too difficult to understand. The book is written in what we call here ‘the international English’ - and that means that an international reader can understand that English book ;-)

    - the only minus I found is in the second part of the book - I didn't like the repetitions and tedious passages. The authors might have used their stories in a better way for sharing more objective advice and wisdom from the Word of God as the other authors did.

    But as a whole, 'An apple for the road" is a pleasantly written, tremendously inspiring and really life changing book.

    I received this ebook from the publisher through Destiny Image Book Review program.

    Wow! I really enjoyed reading ¿An Apple For The Road¿ cover to

    Wow! I really enjoyed reading “An Apple For The Road” cover to cover!
    Literally-beginning with the endorsements! The way everything fit
    together to give a comprehensive overview of what each and every one of
    us can experience as we go through our days completely and fully
    surrendered to Holy Spirit. You will discover (if you read the
    endorsements like I did) that this book is a compilation of stories of
    several of the staff of Bethel Church in Redding. You really don’t want
    to miss out on reading these stories and absorbing the message brought
    out through each one. “And they overcame him because of the blood of
    the Lamb and because of the word of their testimony, and they did not
    love their life even when faced with death.” (Rev. 12:11). The
    testimonies contained within this book are powerful teaching tools for
    anyone ready to go deeper in the Spirit.

    I really enjoyed this book.  The testimonies and the different experiences that each person shared was a blessing.  Each  testimony was sincere and the love for God is real and authentic. I loved the fact that the shared experiences are from ordinary people having such great faith and love for our Lord.  I was given this book to read and review by Destiny Image Publishers.

    An Honest Transparent Glimpse into Loving God, Loving Others, and Living Life

    Pam Spinosi has compiled engaging stories from members of the staff of Bethel School of Supernatural Ministry of Redding, California. These stories reflect honest and transparent glimpses into their lives and their passion for God. The authentic testimonies provide the reader with examples of, impartation, preaching, healing, and prophecy.

    The book is divided into three parts: Loving God, Loving Others, and Living Life. Each author shares a specific aspect from one of these themes. I was captivated by the realization of the many different ways God uses to manifest himself to us as unique individuals. There are heartwarming testimonies of victories won, and of heartbreaking testimonies of disappointments experienced while learning lessons in God’s perfect timing. I was touched by the hunger expressed for knowing the “manifest presence of God,” and for a deeper connection with the Holy Spirit.

    I gained new insights in the scriptural dynamics of human relationships, our identity in the father’s love, and of enjoying friendship with the Holy Spirit. I identified with the longing to find the meaning of true intimacy with God while cultivating a lifestyle pleasing to him.

    If you are looking for answers to the questions: Why am I here? Or “What should I do? you will find guidance, meaningful answers, and practical suggestions for life in the wisdom found in “An Apple for the Road.” Highly recommended.

    A complimentary copy of this book was provided for review purposes. The opinions expressed are my own.
