An Invitation to the Supernatural Life by Michele Perry

"An Invitation to the Supernatural Life" by Michele Perry calls readers to draw closer to Jesus and help deepen their relationship with Him.  Michele Perry weaves tales from her missionary life in South Sudan, with practical principles we can use in our every day life to draw closer to the Supernatural Life.  Michele has a vibrant way of describing her encounters and mixes it with practical advice on dealing with the spirit world.

One of the most impressive things she writes on is dealing with demons - while they do exist, "don't give them much attention, keep your attention focused on Jesus and his Heavenly Kingdom" - because where you focus your attention is where you give permission.  She expounds on angels - looking to them for help, conversing with them like you would converse with a friend over a cup of tea and she states that conversing with angels is NOT worshipping them or praying to them.  I was amazed at her description of the angels she has herself encountered....they are definitely not the gauzy, sweet angels that we find on greeting cards, these are warrior-helpers sent by Jesus to aid us.  One that Michele seen on the camp compound in South Sudan was ten stories tall!

I was most impressed with her chapter on living and walking like Enoch - the man who lived his life so close to God that he was taken into Heaven with God.  She even gives principles for walking that same kind of life today. 

Reading this book will help those who are struggling with questions like:  Is it possible to connect more deeply with God?  What does that look like?  It will help you to develop a hunger for a more meaningful life with God.

The book has solid content, engaging stories from her own life and encounters with the Supernatural Life, easy applications, and each chapter contains questions for deepening your understanding of the chapter, your walk with God, and ways to activate what you've discovered.

I wish to thank Bethany House Publishers and Chosen Books for the complimentary copy of this book.
