The Wind Blows Wherever It Pleases: An Introduction to a Life in the Spirit
By Henry Kendal
This book is an introduction to the life of the spirit that helps people understand, and ultimately experience, the transforming power that the Holy Spirit can bring in both their personal walk with God and the life of the church.
The Church can be a bewildering place – some people are uncomfortable with a charismatic emphasis while others feel that there is too much emphasis on preaching and head knowledge. Either view can stop someone moving on in their journey with God, but Kendal argues that an emphasis on both Spirit and Word are needed for a healthy church and a healthy personal walk with God.
This book sets out to help people understand why both word and spirit are needed, and provides a framework to help readers to understand how the Holy Spirit can help them live life in all its fullness. With many personal stories combined with solid and grounded teaching, Kendal encourages readers to step out on the adventure of their lifetime with the Holy Spirit in this thoughtful and sensitive book.
Henry Kendal is the vicar of St Barnabas, North London, a large evangelical charismatic Anglican church which is part of the New Wine Network of churches. Henry is married to Jane and they have three adult children.
