The God I Never Knew: How Real Friendship with the Holy Spirit Can Change Your Lifeby Robert Morris
Synopses & Reviews
Who is the Holy Spirit, and exactly what does He do?
Many people find the Holy Spirit mysterious, confounding—even controversial. Why is the third person in the Godhead—the one Jesus said would be the believer’s ultimate source of truth and comfort—the source of such confusion?
In The God I Never Knew, Robert Morris clearly explains that the Holy Spirit’s chief desire is for relationship--to offer us the encouragement and guidance of a trusted friend. This insightful and biblically-based book moves beyond theological jargon, religious tradition, and cultural misconceptions to clarify what the Holy Spirit promises to do in your life:
Dwell within you
Be your helper
Guide you into all truth
Pray for you
Show you things to come
Never leave you
It’s time to experience the Holy Spirit in a fresh, new way—to meet the God you may have never known.
