The Holy Spirit Is Not for Sale: Rekindling the Power of God in an Age of Compromise
For more than sixteen years, veteran journalist J. Lee Grady has kept a finger on the pulse of the charismatic and Pentecostal renewal, which restored the power of the Holy Spirit to the church, but which now suffers from abuse. Since many Spirit-empowered believers have lost their original focus and purity, Grady delves into some of the problems that plague churches and ministries: financial scandal, faulty theology, moral failure, and more.
Yet the message of this fervent journalist, who loves the gifts of the Spirit, isn't one of condemnation and finger-pointing. Instead it is a clarion call to restore the fire of supernatural anointing with biblical boldness, purity, integrity, humility, truth, justice, and compassion. Grady longs for every believer to find or recover a genuine experience with the Holy Spirit.
Among the topics he addresses are
• the genuine work of the Holy Spirit
• strategies for developing healthy leaders
• how to set up proper accountability structures
• why so many churches and ministries have imploded in recent years
With extraordinary insight, a keen eye for discernment, and a desire to see the church purified and believers empowered, Grady gives a straightforward and ultimately affirming message that will expose the problems and ignite believers with God's fire.

An interesting read from someone inside the Pentecostal/ Charismatic community. Grady provides some insightful comments and gives some very good historical information on the movement. He is balanced and his caution to those within the movement's confines is well taken. Read full review
