Well-written book focusing on the power of the Holy Spirit which the author feels is the missing link to blessings and usefulness and empowerment in the Christian church today. Cymbala decries the proliferation of committees, programs, and meetings in churches instead of prayer and preaching under the power of the Holy Spirit. "Without this divine power and boldness we tend to shy away from confronting the world head-on. We retreat into discussions about how terrible everything is around us." He comes down hard on charlatans and frauds who promote the "latest trendy manifestations" or try to convince people they must claim promises, stand on them and deny reality. Cymbala, the pastor of Brooklyn Tabernacle Church, backs up his claims of Holy Spirit empowerment by the stories of changed lives as his church reaches out to the addicted, jaded and despairing people that come to the church for help and healing.

Calling the church to rely on the Spirit rather than gimmicks, fades, or trends, Cymbala describes that power God has in store for the believer. At its essence, Fresh Power follows the work of the Spirit recorded in the book of Acts, offering contemporary examples of the Spirit’s power active in the church. Cymbala challenges the church to live and minister in the Spirit’s power, while mourning the spiritual emptiness in many systems and methodologies. B ( )

Haiku summary

Amazon.com Amazon.com Review (ISBN 031023008X, Hardcover)

Jim Cymbala, pastor of the Brooklyn Tabernacle, must be one fantastic sermon-giver. He's got it all: great storytelling skills, the willingness to be humble and vulnerable as he admits his owns frailties, an excellent command of Bible passages, and the ability to weave it all together into a spiritual shawl that warms the soul long after the words have ended. In Fresh Power, Cymbala once again draws upon his life and the lives of his church members to bring forth a new lesson. This time Cymbala speaks to how Christians can embrace the biblical meaning of "Holy Spirit" and follow the words of the scripture to revitalize their faith as well as their church.
