40 Days with the Holy Spirit – Book review

If you’re looking for a devotional to learn more about and with the Holy Spirit, here’s a great choice, 40 Days with the Holy Spirit, by Jack Levison.


I’ve read it through once, but now I want to read it slowly, absorbing it, experiencing the Spirit as I go, one step at a time.

You can read each day’s material in about 10 minutes, but plan on an extra 10-15 for journaling and prayer.

Levison gives 5 tips in the book to help you complete it, not just start it.

  1. Make a daily plan to read for 40 days
  2. Find or create a sacred spot to read it
  3. Keep a good pen handy (amen!)
  4. Develop a daily pattern (settled breathing, slow reading, meditating, etc.)
  5. Be patient with yourself if you miss a day

I’m excited to see how the Spirit will reveal himself during Lent this year as I walk through this book with him.

My review is here on Patheos.

Amazon or Paraclete Press will have it available soon.

      Books just seem to find me, Dolly. ha. And now I need to let my books starting finding other people (i.e., it’s time to clean off the bookshelves. Again.) 🙂 Hope you enjoy the devotional by your pastor! I’m sure it’ll be a great resource to walk you through Lent.

      I know–the seasons come around so fast, yes? I love the timing of Lent beginning in the dead of winter because it’s such a great reminder that spring is always around the corner in more ways than one.
