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.
