Synopses & Reviews
To God be the glory Moved by the Spirit is a passionate, Spirit-led devotional that touches the hearts and souls of all who read it. Inspired by medieval monastics, Symeon and Anselm, author Craig M. Prather's heavy use of free-thought, metaphor, and simile will compel the reader to dive further into prayer and meditation. This book is full of theological nuggets and truths and is a great tool for one who is looking to be inspired, convicted, or simply awestruck by the word of God. ""Moved by the Spirit touched my heart with its God-saturated, Trinitarian-focused writing. It challenged my thinking by dealing with such twenty-first century issues as our treatment of those with mental and physical disabilities, same-sex marriage, and how to find happiness in an anxious culture. In an age that prides itself on knowledge but has very little wisdom, there is plenty of both in the pages of Moved by the Spirit."" --Tom Schiave, Lead Pastor at Gateway Church in Portland, Oregon ""In an age where there seems to be increasing distance between prayer and our everyday lives, Craig's pastoral wisdom creates a bridge, pointing to the many ways the Spirit shapes us through our daily experiences. Resourcing the Scriptures, as well as the long tradition of Christian spiritual formation, Craig's spiritual journey will encourage you to pursue a life 'moved by the Spirit.'"" --Tim M. Allen, Lead Pastor at New Life Church, Incline Village, Nevada ""Refreshing and invigorating, Craig Prather's Moved by the Spirit will move the idle and stagnant soul. Ideal for devotional meditations as a daily companion to Scripture, readers will come away enlightened and enlivened as they journey with Prather in his stream of divine consciousness throughout the year."" --Paul Louis Metzger, Multnomah University & Seminary ""Moved by the Spirit is a moving journey into a deeper life with God. Craig has provided a chronicle growing the Christian in more clearly hearing the voice of God and seeing God in everyday/every-way experiences. . . . This is a great read for those needing a reminder that God is very near to them."" --John McKendricks, Executive Director, Multnomah University, Nevada Craig M.
