Thriving in the Spirit

by Burton Campbell


I can't recommend highly enough Burton Campbell's Thriving in the Spirit. This book is a rare combination of solid exegesis of Scripture, excellent and balanced theology, and practical and accessible guidance for healthy Christian living. Thriving in the Spirit is unapologetically committed to helping us grow in our experience of the Holy Spirit, but it does so in a way that points us right back to the person, character, and love of Jesus Himself (just as the Spirit always does). You will enjoy this wonderful new resource for the body of Christ.

Prior to His ascension, Jesus gave two final commands to His disciples: to make disciples and to wait in Jerusalem until they were empowered by the Holy Spirit. The Church cannon fulfill the first command without experiencing the second command. Thriving in the Spirit not only provides a clear and balanced overview of the important role the baptism in the Holy Spirit played in the ministry of the early Church, but also it will challenge and encourage you as you seek to be the Spirit-empowered witness you need to be to fulfill the assignment God has for your today.

What a marvelous job Burt did writing Thriving in the Spirit. He clearly has a gift for writing, but what makes his message so impactful is that He knows the Holy Spirit and the Word of God well. This combination has produced a powerful tool for the Church.
