Read full description of the books:
I discovered a strange phenomenon around two years ago when I began asking for clarifications, illumination and available studies on the Holy Spirit. It seems so little is said in the bible but what is said is powerful. Sermons never center on the Spirit. If God is a trilogy, why is so little said about the one part. Pastors and other learned Christians were reticent to give answers and provided little in the help to readings. I suggested the subject to my bible study and found a lot of fear and resistance. Do we really want to invoke the Holy Spirit who might convict us of sin? I believe God should only be feared in the sense of awe, so I waited, patiently for revelation.
The time came and we studied this beautiful book written by the wife of Peter Marshall. I had my revelation, well, many actually, but the first was on the lines of the ladder. At Pentecost, Jesus tells his followers to go to Jerusalem and wait to receive The Spirit before they ventured on his commission to spread His Word. The revelation was that I was not previously prepared to meet and greet The Spirit. Every rung of the ladder allows for the next rung and they can not be reached by sheer will.
In that sense, this book will be of little use or understanding to someone from outside of Christ and, even, someone new to his presence although Christians should know a lot more about The Spirit than they do. Can you learn more about the nature, yes, I use that word, pesonality and purpose of The Spirit. Certainly, but you will likely discount the Reality of the Spirit. Unless truly open and, inviting, you will not experience His presence and power. Catherine is not afraid to tell stories of little and large incidents where the Spirit has made Himself known and gone to work. Even three years ago I probably would have tossed the book aside and wondered how someone could believe such things in this day and age. Now, I believe without the slightest doubt.
Do I recommed this book to my many non-beleiver friends. I sure do but expect it might teach you more about where I am today than to transform into living word.
Someone who doesn't know The Father or the Son will have little use in trying to know The Spirit who was sent by the Son to take His place here on earth when he ascended.

Read information about the authorMarshall was born in Johnson City, Tennessee. She was the daughter of the Reverend John Ambrose Wood and Leonora Whitaker Wood. From the age of nine until her graduation from high school, Marshall was raised in Keyser, West Virginia, where her father served as pastor of a Presbyterian church from 1924 to 1942.
While a junior at Agnes Scott College, she met Peter Marshall, marrying him in 1936. The couple moved to Washington, DC, where her husband served as pastor of the New York Avenue Presbyterian Church and Chaplain of the United States Senate.
In 1940, Marshall contracted tuberculosis, for which at that time there was no antibiotic treatment. She spent nearly three years recovering from the illness. Her husband died in 1949 of a heart attack, leaving her to care for their 9-year-old son, Peter John Marshall. He later also became a minister and author.
Marshall wrote a biography of her husband, A Man Called Peter, published in 1951. It became a nationwide success and was adapted as a film of the same name, released in 1955. Her success encouraged her to keep writing.
Marshall wrote or edited more than 30 books, which have sold over 16 million copies. They include edited collections of Peter Marshall's sermons and prayers, and her own inspirational writings. Her most successful books were A Man Called Peter (1951); and her novel, Christy (1967), which was inspired by the story of her mother's time in the mountains teaching the impoverished children of Appalachia. Christy was adapted as a CBS television series, starring Kellie Martin, beginning in 1994.
In 1959, Marshall married Leonard LeSourd, who was the editor of Guideposts Magazine for 28 years. Together they founded a book imprint, Chosen Books. They had three children, Linda, Chester and Jeffery.
Marshall died on March 18, 1983 at the age of 68. She was buried alongside her first husband.
