Foreword by Anita Giovannoni from Crocus Ministries, Johannesburg: ..".It has been so refreshing to read this publication. Andries and Christiane have managed to clearly explain how the Holy Spirit works within us and in the process clear up many misconceptions on how God speaks. It is wonderful to have each chapter backed with personal testimonies to cement each gift. This gives us such a clear view of how God works with and through the authors, and potentially with all of us. Andries's prophetic gift is certainly very sharp. To be honest, this book has spurred me on to hear clearer, move quicker and be more useful to the Holy Spirit. Having known Andries for many years I know that he is always on "spiritual duty." He evangelizes everywhere and uses his gifts constantly to bring people the realness of the Holy Spirit. This book will minister to you through the pages. Be expectant for God to speak as you read. The gifts of the Holy Spirit have been explained very clearly and simply. You will begin to feel an excitement for the gifts of the Holy Spirit, so be prepared. As you go through the pages and chapters you will find your own gifts being stirred. That is the purpose of a prophetic book. I have great admiration for Andries as a Pastor and a Prophet. It is not easy to be both but he manages so well. It comes through clearly in the pages of the book. He knows when to be pastoral and when to put on the prophets mantle. This book was certainly written by the prophet and the message is clear and concise. It has been such a blessing to know Andries, Christiane and their two beautiful sons, truly a family gifted and blessed. Thank you for your friendship."

Publisher: Multnomah Pub
Experience the Lifelong Pleasures of Knowing God! Satisfaction…Happiness…Joy. According to John Piper, the pursuit of pleasure in God is not only permissible, it’s essential. Desiring God is a paradigm-shattering work that dramatically alters common perspectives on relating to God. Piper reveals that there really is no need to choose between duty and delight in the Christian life. In fact, for the follower of Jesus, delight is the duty as Christ is most magnified in His people when they are most satisfied in Him. Constantly drawing on Scripture to build his case, Piper shows why pursuing maximum joy is essential to glorifying God. He discusses the implications of this for conversion, worship, love, Scripture, prayer, money, marriage, missions, and suffering. Piper beckons us to approach God with the hedonist’s abandon. Finally, we are freed to enjoy Jesus—not only as our Lord and Savior, but also as our all-surpassing, soul-satisfying Treasure. Desiring God may turn your Christian world upside down. And that will be a good thing, for the glory of God, and for your deepest joy. Includes a study guide for individual and small group use.

Author: Anne Graham Lotz

The Daniel Prayer is born deep within your soul, erupts through your heart, and pours out on your lips, words created by and infused with the Spirit of God quivering with spiritual electricity.

An answer to prayer, a promise freshly received, a miracle that lies just over the horizon. Join Anne in a thrilling discovery of prayer that really works. This book will help you pray effectively for your nation, for your families, and for yourself.

Peace with God
Author: Billy Graham
Publisher: Thomas Nelson
It May Not Be a Coincidence That This Book Has Crossed Your Path... In Peace with God Dr. Billy Graham asks God to help this book “find its way into the hands and hearts of a lost, confused, and searching world . . . men, women, and young people everywhere [who] thirst for peace with God.” In spite of a life drenched with responsibilities and rewards, are you thirsting? Searching for some nameless thing that is more important than anything in life? You are not alone. All mankind is seeking the answer to the confusion, the moral sickness, the spiritual emptiness that oppresses the world. All humanity is crying out for guidance, for comfort . . .for peace. Dr. Graham shares God’s gentle, reassuring promise of spiritual calm—of authentic personal peace—amidst a personal life wracked with too much stress, too many burdens, too great a heartache. “I know men who would write a check for a million dollars if they could find peace,” writes Dr. Graham. “Millions are searching for it. But we Christians have found it! It is ours now and forever. We have found the secret of life! . . .When your spouse dies or your children get sick or you lose your job, you can have a peace that you don’t understand. You may have tears at a graveside, but you can have an abiding peace, a quietness. “God’s peace can be in your heart—right now . . .Whatever the circumstances, whatever the call, whatever the duty, whatever the price, whatever the sacrifice—His strength will be your strength in your hour of need. “It’s all yours, and it’s free. You don’t have to work for it . . . . Do not put it off.”
