After an intense study of the Holy Spirit, Catherine Marshall wrote The Helper, detailing lessons she learned by living them out. She offers forty inspirational "helps," or readings, that contain Scripture, a prayer, and insight into the provocative third person of the Godhead. Also included are the answers Marshall discovered to questions like: Ž Who is the Helper? Ž How do I experience the Helper's presence? Ž How does the Helper meet everyday needs? Ž What is the Helper's role and function in the Church? The forty "helps" are ideal as a devotional guide for the forty days of Lent and for group or individual study. Just as the power of the Holy Spirit is needed every day to help us cope with the problems and complexities of life, so he Helper is a book for all seasons, with total sales of more than 1.2 million.

"The Helper" is the best book on the Holy Spirit I have read, and I've read many. I think it's because the author does not focus on the "gifts" of the Spirit, nor even on the "fruit" of the Spirit. Rather, she centers on the "person" who is The Holy Spirit. We, as believers,understand developing a personal relationship with Jesus Christ. This book shows us that God wants us to develop a personal relationship with the Holy Spirit too. In fact, in the Church age, the Holy Spirit IS THE manifestation of God we experience... and He always points us to Jesus. This is a refreshing book without the goofiness.
This book was given to me by the pastor who has been my mentor in ministry over the past 10 years. He said he considered it the best book ever written on the Holy Spirit. Later when he asked me what I thought of the book I said, "I think everyone in the body of Christ should read this book!" Of all the books I have read in my Christian journey, I would have to say this one has been the most powerful in my life. I now realize I have only skimmed the surface of what The Helper has to teach me. This Christmas I gave over 25 copies of this book to people I consider to be mature, faithful Christians. Each one called me after reading the first few chapters to say thank you and tell me how fantastic they thought it was. I hope this book will bless you as much as it has me.
Some years ago, the Holy Spirit called me to learn more about the help He wants to give us. This book was recommended to me by our Pastor's wife. After reading it, I had to share it with others. So far, I've lead four classes using this book and have enjoyed witnessing the changes the Holy Spirit brings as He is welcomed and sought out for guidance. I made a study guide to accompany this book and would like to share it with any others who are called to lead a class using this book. My e-mail is MSReifsnyd@aol.com
