Greetings from my stop of the Celebration Lit Book tour for Tongues of Fire, 50 days of celebrating Pentecost devotional book. There is information about the book, tour stops, and Giveaway. Don’t forget to enter!
Tongues of Fire is a 50 day devotional celebrating Pentecost. The book opens and asks why we don’t celebrate Pentecost? We celebrate Christmas and Easter. It goes on to explain the importance of Pentecost and the Holy Spirit.
There are fifty devotions to help better understand Pentecost by giants of faith both classic and contemporary. I knew most of them but a few were new to me. The devotions are all different and inspiring.
A great number of the devotions are about speaking in tongues. This Methodist raised gal is unfamiliar with that. I am open-minded and have heard various thoughts on it. Another topic given a lot of days was healing.
Some of the devotions spoke to me more than others. I agree that we all need to welcome and accept the Holy Spirit into our lives. Jesus sent Him to us for a reason. One devotion said “when you receive the power of the Holy Spirit, you become someone you could never be on your own”. I totally agree.
Another devotional said “Simply by paying attention to what He is doing and cooperating with Him, we come to understand God better. Who doesn’t want to know God better? I certainly do.
This was a devotional that is meant to be read over a period of 50 days. I read it in just a few days in order to write this review. Some of the days spoke straight to me and I was inspired. Other days were hard to understand. I felt chastised in a few places rather than enlightened.
I did not receive answers to some of my questions. It is a hard to read at times devotional and not exactly uplifting. It felt more scholarly. Scripture is plentiful. This is definitely biblically based.
I would recommend this for anyone wanting to delve deeper into the Holy Spirit and Pentecost. It is good for learning a little about speaking in tongues. I would not recommend it for a young person, simply because I had trouble in some parts. I rated it 3 out of 5 stars. Celebrate provided an e-book but I was under no obligation to write a review.
