I had never heard much of Rod Parsley when I purchased this book, so I read it with an open mind. The first three chapters were extremely hard hitting (almost negative), but then Parsley turned that around to what the Church could do if it let the Holy Spirit lead it. WOW!! It blew me away. For those who are used to flowing in the River..you'll know what I mean!!. Just a note to non U.S readers like me. A lot of the book talks about the Church of America but it wasn't too difficult to mirror that with the western church in general I definately recommend this book if you want a jump-start for your spirit.
