Michael Brown optimized3This book is just what we need! As America becomes increasingly secular and even hostile to the gospel, Christians are withdrawing more and more from the things of the Spirit, as if the way to win the world was to become like the world. In reality, we need to do the opposite: to be filled afresh with the Spirit and to reach out and touch a dying world in the name and power of Jesus.

But how do we do it? Where do we start? How do we avoid making errors of judgment and practice? In this book, you will be guided by two pastors with a combined experience of eighty-five years of ministry, two men with a heart to touch the lost and to engage the culture. Are you ready to step out in the wonderful world of the Spirit? Do it with this book in hand.

This is the most comprehensive and informative book I have ever read on the gift of prophecy. The real-life stories will surprise you and the practical application will inspire you to step out and let God use even you in this amazing supernatural gift!

This is an excellent book for anyone who is hungry to get past simply going to church and into the tremendous adventure of Holy Spirit led ministry.  God has created in us a hunger to see Him invade the impossible and work through us in ways that are beyond our own human efforts.  This book will help you explore the wonderful world of what He has made available to all that believe!

Deep, sound teaching coupled with lively, relevant experience written specifically and skillfully for our day and age on one of the key functions of the Holy Spirit.

One is never enough. Two may be O.K. but three is even better and also more like God who shows Himself as our Uncreated Triune Creator. “This is the third time I am coming to you” (said a man who knew what he was talking about:) “EVERY FACT IS TO BE CONFIRMED BY THE TESTIMONY OF two or three witnesses.” (2Cor. 13:1) In a world deeply hungry for the supernatural, if you want to find a clear path through the spiritual fog that so often clouds a simple quest for the joy and pleasure of trusting God, you need to hear wise words from the mouth of two or three witnesses. Here it is. Two who have long learned from the Lord passed on to you what can help you be more like the Big Three. I loved what I learned from this book.

Paul, the Apostle, thought he had God all figured out – he had been trained by the best, had all the answers – but his God was in a very small box…until one encounter, one experience on the road to Damascus with the living God blew his box to pieces! God is not an intellectual concept that we learn about from a book, rather He is a loving Father who wants us to experience Him! Bob and Mark do a great job of sharing their personal journey in the supernatural, how they came to not only learn about God, but more importantly, experience Him…and how we can experience Him as well! If you want a nice neat, orderly, predictable God, this book is not for you! But if you are okay with messiness and unpredictability, this book is for you!

Reading Reluctantly Supernatural in an Age of Reason is a wonderful reminder that signs and wonders, and the gifts of the Holy Spirit are very much alive in the global church. Mark Cowper-Smith and Bob Maddux have written a riveting book that promises the reader an inside look at the supernatural activity of the Holy Spirit in the lives of those who are Christ followers. In a day of cynics and mockers this book reminds us that the One who dwells within us is greater – greater –greater than the one who is in the world.

What an engaging, challenging, and helpful book about growing our service for Jesus by experimenting with and using Holy Spirit gifts. I wrestled with their suggestion that any follower of Jesus can prophesy even though few have the title of prophet. Trusting their gracious, encouraging approach to this Holy Spirit gift, I find their teaching rings true. If you are up for a spiritual adventure that grows your curiosity and joy, don’t just read this book, use it as a manual for personal mission.

Thankful to those who are obedient to the Most High God, those who take the risks in faith, and those who wait on Him. Thankful to those who pray. I am so thankful that these authors did all of the above. Holy God speaks. May all of His children listen and abide in Lord Jesus Christ being led by the Holy Spirit. Reluctant no more!

Enjoying the book!

Your book was the first time I’ve read some really compelling evidence and reasoning for the “emotional” aspect of the “Holy Spirit” being part of our lives.

wilkerson - optimized2There are many books about the prophetic ministry from a theological perspective and likewise there are many books filled with inspiring stories of the life changing power of an accurate prophetic word – This book is unique because it strikes a balance between sound theology and practical spiritual experience. This book speaks to one of the great issues the Church faces in our time – The Why and The How of being a voice to many who are seeking to hear from God in this generation.
