Simon Cockshutt opens 40-Days Holy Spirit: A Retreat at the beginning. Literally, at the start, the creation of the world. “God created the heavens and the earth. Now the earth was formless and empty, darkness was over the surface of the deep, and the Spirit of God was hovering over the waters.” God, he concludes is a spirit. He wants us to know that and to open our hearts and know Him. Each of the forty chapters takes a step closer to God and all end with a prayer to help the reader achieve that should he or she so choose; He created us with free will. From chapter one, which considers the different perceptions two people may form of another person to the closing chapter, Unity, 40-Days Holy Spirit seeks to change your life.
Simon Cockshutt’s 40-Days Holy Spirit is an invitation to join him on a journey to the center of who we are: the children of God. Reading the book does not take long, and the “instructions” are clear. I discovered it might well take forty days to assimilate the intriguing message that with God we are more than we can be without Him. Written for Christians and non-Christians, I guarantee it will provide clarity for the first – it may well convert the second. I loved Simon Cockshutt’s style of writing – casual, chatty, and yet based on a sound study of the Bible. Reading 40-Days Holy Spirit felt like communicating with a friend. One who cared deeply about me and my relationship with God and His church.
