Leader’s Edge (Spiritual Formation)
William Carey Publishing, 2020, 333 Pages
Following the author’s death in 2019, William Carey Publishers picked up this self-published (Amazon) book, newly bringing it to us. Smith’s premise is that the Holy Spirit is the Hidden Mover behind all personal life transformation and ministry fruitfulness. Though we know the Bible says to walk in the Spirit, the majority of Christians are illiterate about how to practically live in His power. The result is lives marred by continuing brokenness and ministries plagued by fruitlessness. Smith reminds us of the ancient path the Bible teaches and explains it in a practical spiritual discipline: how to daily S.W.A.P. (Surrender, Wait, Avoid sin, Pursue the Spirit) your control for God’s. Learn how to stay full of the Spirit as you abide in Christ throughout the day, and your life.
