About Jesus in Me

USA TODAYPUBLISHERS WEEKLY AND ECPA BESTSELLER • The internationally recognized Bible teacher and daughter of Billy Graham combines unique biblical insights and her own personal stories to show how the Holy Spirit guides us in our decisions, comforts us in pain, and stays by our side at all times, enriching our daily lives.
 
In Jesus in Me, Anne Graham Lotz draws on her rich biblical knowledge as well as her personal journey—including her recent cancer diagnosis—to help us understand that the Holy Spirit is not a magic genie, a flame of fire, or a vague feeling. He is a Person who prays for us, guides us in our relationships and decisions, comforts us in pain, and stays by our side at all times. In this seminal teaching, she explores seven key aspects of the Holy Spirit that will revolutionize how you understand and relate to this vital third Person in the Trinity.
 
As Anne writes, “One of my deepest, richest joys has been discovering by experience who the Holy Spirit is in every step of my life’s journey. Each name that He has been given—Helper, Comforter, Advocate, Intercessor, Counselor, Strengthener, and Standby—reveals another aspect of His beautiful character and has provoked in me a deep love for the One who is my constant Companion . . . Jesus in me.”
 
Discover how to better love and rely on the person of the Holy Spirit—and embrace how much He loves you through His presence, power, and provision in our daily lives.

Praise

“Fifteen years ago, I sat in an arena with thousands of other women as Anne Graham Lotz expounded on the person and power of the Holy Spirit. Every word was like a lit match catching fire in my soul. Since then, I’ve gotten an up-close, personal look at Anne’s relationship with the Spirit of God. She walks with Him, listens to Him, and rests on His power to fulfill the Father’s purposes for her. The truths that she has taught me—and that she now shares with you in this book—have come not just from deep study but also from the personal experience of a woman who has learned the rhythms of grace through a lifetime of faithfulness.”—Priscilla Shirer, Bible teacher and author

“This book is a genuine treasury of wisdom that can be attained only through a life of walking with God and being led by His Holy Spirit. I am thrilled Anne Graham Lotz has walked this walk so that she can talk this talk for our benefit! This is about the only way to fully live the life for which we were each created. Read it and rejoice!”—Eric Metaxas, #1 New York Times best-selling author of Bonhoeffer and Miracles

“One of the things I’ve always appreciated about Anne Graham Lotz is her passionate desire to pursue God and know Him intimately. In this recent season of suffering, Anne has learned some profound lessons and experienced the Holy Spirit as her constant companion, comforter, and friend. The result is her new book, Jesus in Me. I highly recommend it.”—Greg Laurie, senior pastor of Harvest Christian Fellowship

“Most of us would give anything to be literally led through the day by the tender, firm hand of our Savior. How we’d love to hear His voice telling us clearly which way to turn and when to stop. And, oh, if we could only feel the nearness and sweetness of His presence! The good news is we can! In her new and most remarkable book, Anne Graham Lotz succinctly explains how the Spirit who resides within us is the Spirit of Jesus Himself. Hence the title Jesus in Me. My friend details not only how to lean on the Spirit of Jesus but also how to recognize His voice, perceive His touch, sense His nearness, and respond to His instruction. I heartily recommend this excellent book to anyone who desires a closer communion with Christ!”—Joni Eareckson Tada, founder of Joni and Friends International Disability Center

“I just finished spending the day reading Anne’s wonder-filled book Jesus in Me. It is truly a spiritual thriller—for isn’t that what it is like when a child of God discovers he or she not only is indwelt by God’s Spirit but also can be divinely led and empowered by His Spirit in every circumstance of life? The theology is clear in these pages, and you’ll find story after story of what this Spirit-directed walk looks like in the varied trials, twists, and turns of life.”—Kay Arthur, author, Bible teacher, and cofounder of Precept Ministries International

“It is one thing to read a book about the Holy Spirit, but it is another thing altogether to read a book by an author who is experiencing the ongoing presence and power of the Holy Spirit. Jesus in Me is a living testimony that will teach you, encourage you, and inspire you to be like Christ. Regardless of where you are in your life today, God will use these transforming words to meet you at the point of your greatest need. He is with you always, even until the end of the earth.”—Dr. Ronnie Floyd, senior pastor of Cross Church and president of the National Day of Prayer

Jesus in Me is a simple yet powerful book about the truth of who the Holy Spirit is and the importance of how He works in our lives. Within every page you will discover what it means to have Jesus fully alive inside you! This book is a much-needed read for the body of Christ today.”—Darryl Strawberry, evangelist and former major league baseball player

“Anne Graham Lotz stands as one of the most anointed and gifted voices in modern-day Christianity. In her new book, Jesus in Me, Anne equips us with a biblically substantiated framework for a life driven, convicted, and comforted by God’s precious Holy Spirit. This book will not just inspire you; it will empower you!”—Samuel Rodriguez, lead pastor of New Season, president of the National Hispanic Christian Leadership Conference, author ofYou Are Next, and executive producer of the movie Breakthrough

ANNE GRAHAM LOTZ’S NEW BOOK EXPLORES THE HOLY SPIRIT AS CONSTANT COMPANION IN JESUS IN ME

“This book is a genuine treasury of wisdom that can be attained only through a life of walking with God and being led by His Holy Spirit. I am thrilled Anne Graham Lotz has walked this walk so that she can talk this talk for our benefit! This is about the only way to fully live the life for which we were each created. Read it and rejoice!”
—Eric Metaxas, New York Times number one best-selling author of Bonhoeffer and Miracles
 
Anne Graham Lotz, best-selling author, international speaker, and daughter of Billy Graham, grew up in a family where Jesus was central, but she doesn’t remember being taught about the Holy Spirit. “Which made me wonder if you would say the same thing?” she asks in her forthcoming book Jesus in Me: Experiencing the Holy Spirit as a Constant Companion (Oct. 1, 2019, Multnomah).
 
In Jesus in Me, Lotz draws on her rich biblical knowledge as well as personal stories to help readers more fully understand the role, power, and person of the Holy Spirit.  In this seminal message, she explores seven key aspects of the Holy Spirit that will revolutionize how readers understand and relate to the Third Person of the Trinity.
 
Jesus in Me is Lotz’s first book since her father’s passing in February 2018 and since her own breast cancer diagnosis.  She shares moving insights on how the Holy Spirit has been meaningful to her during these difficult seasons of life.
 
“The indispensable necessity of the Holy Spirit has never been more evident in my life than during the writing of this book,” writes Lotz. “As I began the challenge of put­ting words on a page, my ninety-nine-year-old father, whom I adored, went to Heaven. I was already a widow, and his homegoing left me an orphan. Six months later I was diagnosed with breast cancer, went through follow-up sur­gery, then began the brutal chemotherapy treatments. Through the ups and downs, the tears and joy, the grief and comfort, I have experienced the constant companionship of the Holy Spirit.”
 
Lotz sets the record straight that the Holy Spirit is not a magic genie, a flame of fire, a force, or a vague feeling. Using biblical text, she teaches that the Holy Spirit is a person with a mind, will, and
emotions. Christians can experience him as a Helper, Comforter, Advocate, Intercessor, Counselor, Strengthener, and Standby.
 
In Jesus in Me, readers will discover that Lotz has created a simple yet rich resource that will transform their relationship with this vital member of the Trinity. She explores such facets of life with the Holy Spirit as:

·         Loving the person of the Holy Spirit
·         Enjoying the presence of the Holy Spirit
·         Learning to rely on His power
·         Embracing the purpose of the Holy Spirit
·         Reflecting on the purity of the Holy Spirit

In addition, Lotz offers comprehensive appendixes offering deeper insight into learning to hear the Holy Spirit while reading the Bible and how to be filled—and stay filled—with the Holy Spirit.
 
 It is Lotz’s prayer for Jesus in Me that readers will discover the Holy Spirit by personal experience as a constant companion and that the discovery will lead them to love Him even more. Jesus in Me is an indispensable resource for anyone who desires a deeper and more vibrant relationship with the Holy Spirit.  Lotz writes, “One thing I know for certain: He is not an optional extra in my Christian life. He is a divine necessity.”
