Five Charismatic Christmas Books

Check out five great charismatic books to feed your faith at Christmas and all year round.

1. Wholeness

Christy Wimber and Katharine Welby-Roberts, Monarch Books, 2019

Wholeness  addresses the whole area of healing as Christy Wimber draws on her considerable personal experience to help the reader understand the many ways God uses this important gift of the Spirit. We are reminded that the goal of healing is for all to be loved by a loving God, to be given the opportunity to demonstrate our love for others, and to lose our own fear of asking them to help us. Christy reminds us that one of the most challenging issues among Christians today is mental health, which is rarely talked about because of the stigma attached to it. Wholeness  greatly increases our understanding of this complex area and the best ways of addressing it. This book challenged my whole way of thinking about various aspects of the healing ministry, particularly in the vital area of mental health, and I wholeheartedly commend it-particularly to those with even the most basic leadership responsibilities. Charles Whitehead

2. Renew Your Wonders

Damian Stayne, New Life Publishing, 2017

This book brings to mind the words of St John Paul II: 'Whenever the Spirit intervenes, he leaves people astonished. He brings about events of amazing newness.'  Renew Your Wonders  is filled with amazing testimonies of the new things God is doing through the gifts of the Holy Spirit. Yet, as Damian Stayne  compellingly demonstrates, these new things are actually a re-discovery of what belongs to the normal life of the Church. Damian’s book will inspire and challenge readers to greater faith in the God who loves to do extraordinary things through ordinary people. Dr Mary Healy 

3. Light A Fire

Rónán Johnston, What's Your Story, 2018

Light a Fire  is a great book for anyone interested in worship. Written in response to the many questions surrounding worship, a mixture of practical advice and spiritual wisdom will help worship leaders respond to the voice of the Spirit in new ways. Issues such as leading worship when people don’t understand is expertly handled by Rónán Johnston’s honest and heartfelt approach. Most of all, it will encourage you to really dig into what it means to come before God’s throne and worship in spirit and in truth. The “Removing Blockages” section presents worshippers with opportunities to pray honest and vulnerable prayers before God. Andy Drozdziak

4. Guided By God 

Fr Pat Collins, New Life Publishing, 2015

300 pages of reliable guidance for anyone who wants to learn to listen to God speak in their heart. Using practical examples, we read how a person can receive divine guidance in normal ways and also in extraordinary charismatic ways and how to discern their authenticity. In these pages, the reader will find real treasure in both the testimonies from life and the knowledge and spiritual insight Fr. Pat shares with his readers. This book is informed throughout by the conviction that fidelity to divine guidance is the key to personal holiness and to the revival and renewal of the Church. Full of fascinating quotations and references, this is a book to come back to again and again. Gerard Pomfret

5. Walking With Jesus

Maureen Clarke, New Life Publishing, 2009

Walking With Jesus  is a child-friendly book of Gospel stories, written to enable children to enter more fully into the Gospels and experience Jesus more deeply through the Gospel stories. Jesus said: “Let the little children come to me…because the kingdom of God belongs to such as these.” (Mark 10:14) Maureen Clarke has done just that, in and through these simple yet profound meditations for children and for the young at heart. The proof of the practical application of these meditations has been their weekly use at the inner city Holy Name primary school Friday prayer meeting. Fr Pat Deegan
