Book review: Jesus in me by Anne Graham Lotz

25 June 2020

Anne Graham Lotz wrote Jesus in Me during a time of bereavement.

By Commissioner Doug Davis

Anne Graham Lotz teaches that Christian holiness is the presence of Jesus in the believer. Salvationist theologian Samuel Logan Brengle would concur and we could expect a dignified ‘amen’ from General Frederick Coutts, who quoted Brengle’s imperative that, “There is no such thing as holiness apart from Christ in you.”

Jesus In Me – Experiencing the Holy Spirit as a Constant Companion is a good preaching resource because it combines doctrine and devotion within a conservative evangelical context.

The author, daughter of Billy and Ruth Graham, confides that the book was written in a time of bereavement that saw the loss of both her husband and father. Personal testimony shines through the pages along with anecdotes that convincingly ‘earth’ the teaching. Relevant biblical references add value.

Chapters end with a question or comment useful for group discussion. Teaching on spiritual gifts is well based. As the title suggests, the relationship between Jesus and the Holy Spirit is helpfully kept in balance.

Jesus In Me – Experiencing the Holy Spirit as a Constant Companion is available at Koorong.
