The Word and Power Church, What Happens When a Church Seeks All God Has to Offer?
Like spiritual Hatfields and McCoys, evangelicals and charismatics have long been trading salvos over the doctrinal wall. One side has championed the Word; the other, the Holy Spirit. But are the Word and the Spirit really in conflict? Or has God’s ideal, all along, included. both? The Truth and the Spirit. Sound biblical teaching and God’s leading—the word and power. Today, more and more Christians are realizing that it’s time for us to lay down our weapons and embrace the strengths each side has to offer. Time to become what God has always intended us to be: the word and power church. Doug is the pastor of Fellowship Church, an Evangelical Free Church planted in Knoxville, Tennessee, in 1987.
Reese Howells, Intercessor
Reese Howells was a man peculiarly taught of God: one who learned the Bible as the Spirit made him live it. Every chapter of this biography is full of drama and light, showing how he faced the implications of total surrender, learned to love the unlovely, found the key to prevailing prayer, became the channel of a mighty revival in Africa, was taught the principles of divine healing, and progressed ever further in faith until world events were affected by his prayers. Here are rich truths of the Spirit for all the Church of Christ today, inherent in a story told with simplicity, humanity, and humor enough to captivate any reader.
Mary’s everyday experiences as a missionary to India. Spiritual truths are amazing when you first come to understand them. The first time you understand the total love of God for His creation, for example, expressed through the gift of His Son, is just such an experience. The revelation that God hears and will direct our day-to-day lives through prayer is another of these faith expanding realizations that can change every aspect of our Christian walk I know it has completely changed mine and this book is an integral part of my understanding.

Does the Bible teach that we can and should hear God speak to us today? How can we hear God’s voice? How can we know whether the thoughts are God’s, the flesh, or from the devil? How can we find God’s will for most things of life unless He tells us? Peter Lord answers these questions as he underscores the necessity of learning how to listen for the voice of God. He believes that for many Christians prayer life is so difficult because it is basically a one way conversation. This handbook is an easy to follow, step by step guide to two-way communication with God. Those who pursue such a relationship will be rewarded with a vigorous prayer life coupled with a dynamic and personal encounter with the God who reveals himself in his Word. Peter Lord, now retired, was for many years the senior pastor at Park Avenue Baptist Church in Titusville, Florida, and a popular conference speaker and prayer seminar leader.
