It's not often that I find a book where I want to buy ten copies and give them out and it's not often I find a book for under ten dollars that fits that mold. With 183 pages of gold, Paul Davis an expert author here on Ezine articles brings a balanced Penticostal view of the life of a person who is crucified with Christ should look like. Free of hype and all the sensational language of the penticostal speakers normally have, I found Paul's book highly entertaining and a book that I stayed up all night to read.
It's a light read, not bogged down with theology and yet its a book that I can see myself reading again and again in times to come. In fact I have it slated in to read again next week. He takes each of his points and has enough ministry experience to develop the point and has many quoutes from other books from saints that have experienced the fire of God.
Paul identifies a carnal Christian and shows what a backslidden Christian is and encourages each reader to catch hold of the fire and live a life that is pleasing to God. Many people are talking the talk, many Christians have all the lingo, but Paul who has taken Christ's light into fifty countries is walking the walk.
He is far removed from the modern prosperity teachers, but a gifted teacher he is, who is able to re-inforce a point by repetition similar to how Jesus did. It is obvious that Paul has a real knowledge of the Bible as the Bible is quoted all through the book but I have a feeling that the words Paul wanted to say came flowing out of his hands on a keyboard and he simply reached for his Bible to find the verse he had just quoted. Some books I read are dry with doctrine and with theology written by people with a lot of knowledge and not much fire in their life.
But Paul's book sparkles with his fire and is a testimony to what sort of dynamic person that he is. He is a prophetic voice that is rare to find these days. Published by his own ministry Puals didn't need a big publisher to back the book, he simply went ahead and published it anyway as the Lord led him.
In my time I have never written a book review, but I have a heartfelt love for Paul who has really encouraged me in this book. If you go to his website you will find he is an author of many books all of which are available at Amazon. I pray that you take a chance and buy yourself his book and stoke the fire of the Lord in your life and get productive for God
