New Look for Landmark Teaching on Living the Spirit-Empowered Life

In our instant-gratification culture, we consume a fleeting, shallow diet of media, relationships, entertainment, and spirituality. Our souls go hungry, longing for a fuller, more satisfying life.

Bestselling author and beloved pastor Jack Hayford shows, in what has become a modern-day classic, how we can feed our deepest places with the sustaining Bread of Life. With warmth and wisdom, he reveals how we can link our souls to timeless practices and principles set forth in Scripture. He invites you to rediscover the power and blessing of these spiritual disciplines—of true Spirit-fullness.

Even more, he shows how these spiritual disciplines are relevant for today and how we can practice them in our quick-paced, surface-level culture. When we take time to fast and pray, worship daily, feed on God's Word, and more, we fully enter the rich adventure of becoming an effective disciple of Christ—ensuring that our souls will never go hungry.

This is a re-release of Jack Hayford's book "The Power and Blessing" under a new publisher and new title.  The subtitle is perhaps the more telling of what readers will encounter within the pages of this book: "Growing in the 10 Principles of Spirit-Filled Discipleship." Though I agree with the idea of the main title, I found walking through each principle (discipline as the table of contents informs us) I was discovering a lesson in Christ likeness and disciplines of Christian living.  Within these principles we discover the potential of spirit fullness and having a life, not just filled by the Holy Spirit, but formed by Him as well. Hayford designed this as less a commentary on the subject and more a conversation starter than any other book I have read on the subject.  It is within this design I found myself more encouraged and compelled by the authors work, as well as sensing a desire to follow the principles and not just consume them in book form. If you are interested in picking up a book on Spirit-filled living, whether you are new to the idea or long been living in it, this book should be considered as your next read.  And don't just read it, practice it. **I received this book free from Chosen Books in return for an honest review.  These are my personal thoughts.
