A few Christians are spiritual giants whose lives inspire generations to come. Read how God used 20 well-known Christians including Francois de Fenelon, Madame Guyon, John Wesley, George Muller, and General William Booth. Each of them found a deeper relationship with God when the Holy Spirit transformed their lives..This volume of personal recollections tells of the most meaningful spiritual events in the lives of great Christian leaders throughout history.What do great Christians have in common? What motivates and empowers some believers to lead extraordinary lives of service, sacrifice, and devotion? James Gilchrist Lawson (1874-1946) studied many such spiritual giants, looking for a common thread in their experience. He found that all of them had been nominal Christians until the Holy Spirit transformed their lives. They called this experience "full consecration," "entire sanctification," "the baptism of the Holy Spirit," and so on. This book describes what Lawson learned as he studied the deeper spiritual experiences of these Christian leaders.What do great Christians have in common? What motivates and empowers some believers to lead extraordinary lives of service, sacrifice, and devotion? Is God calling you to such a life? James Gilchrist Lawson studied many such spiritual giants, looking for a common thread in their experiences. All of them had been nominal Christians until the Holy Spirit transformed their lives. They called the experience "full consecration," "entire sanctification," "the baptism of the Holy Spirit," and so on. Regardless of the term used, all reported that an encounter with the Holy Spirit had redirected their lives. This book describes what Lawson learned as he studied the deeper experience of these Christian leaders. See what God can do in your own life when you surrender yourself fully to Him. Lawson traces the lives of great men and women of God down through the centuries and rediscovers a practice in the church that has perhaps been forgotten. After repentance and water baptism, new believers would seek the infilling of the Holy Spirit. Elders or those filled with the Holy Spirit would anoint, lay hands on, and pray for this infilling of the Spirit. In this way, the Holy Spirit was passed down from one believer to the next, from one generation to the next. JAMES GILCHRIST LAWSON (1874-1946) was a popular Christian author and hymn writer of the early twentieth century.From the Patriarchs and John the Baptist to John Bunyan, John Wesley, D.L. Moody, and many others, this volume of personal recollections tells of the most meaningful spiritual events in the lives of great Christian leaders throughout history. These events stirred a profound love of God and Jesus Christ and a burning desire to live according to God's design
