Touched by God: Experiencing the Holy Spirit

My next book book is written for pastors and lay people, and I’m sure it will be beneficial for undergraduate students as well.

My literary agent is currently working on getting the right publisher.

96674873_233cda8524_bTouched by God will open your eyes to the wind of the Spirit, to its powerful gusts and to its breezes that blow so gently we are often not conscious of its stirring. This book will satisfy your questions about experiencing the Holy Spirit and reveal what it truly means to be spiritual. This is a book that nudges Spirit-experience junkies toward discernment and steers skeptics toward experiencing the Holy Spirit as more than just idly dwelling within them.



  1. Confessions of a Recovering Spirit-Experience Junkie
  2. Shake and Bake: Slain in the Spirit and Other Manifestations
  3. Knock, Knock, Who’s There? Hearing God Speak
  4. Crazy Talk? Praying in Tongues
  5. Living Large: Faith, Health, Wealth, and other Wonderful Things
  6. Measuring Up? The Spiritual Gifts
  7. So, What Does it Mean to be Spiritual?
  8. Postscript: A Prayer
