Book: Surprised by the Holy Spirit

Surprised by the Holy Spirit—There Is More for You Than You Think is authored by Pastor Dr Edgar Mayer, a pastor of the Lutheran Church of Australia, serving Living Grace Lutheran Church in Toowoomba.
Surprised by the Holy Spirit provides eye-opening and soul-stirring biblical truths illustrated with real-life experiences that reveal the Holy Spirit’s role in every believer’s life. 
After His resurrection, Jesus promised His disciples that they would be “baptized with the Holy Spirit” (Acts 1:5). What was Jesus promising the disciples—and you? He promised that the Comforter, the Joygiver, the Advocate, the Encourager, and the Spirit of Truth would infuse you with power to boldly and victoriously live a more abundant life. 
Surprised by the Holy Spirit is for everyone who is: 
• Eager to learn more about the Holy Spirit. 
• Battling for victory in spiritual warfare. 
• Curious about speaking in tongues. 
• Hungry for the benefits of the Spirit baptism. 
• Skeptical about Holy Spirit manifestations. 
The interactive study guide in the back of the book is an empowering, personal or small group tool designed to strengthen your spiritual life and reveal the depth of God’s love for you.

  • The Word alone is not enough

  • The foolishness continues
