The foreword is written by Archbishop Mark Coleridge.
"The New Evangelisation requires a New Pentecost, the sovereign action of the Holy Spirit in the Church, rather than new programs or harder work by those in the vineyard of the Lord. In this book Fr Ken explains that this is already happening, that the Spirit is already changing hearts and lives. It is very encouraging for those who want to see the Church fully alive."
-- Marita Winters, Executive Secretary, Bishops Commission for Mission and Faith Formation
"This book provides a beautiful exposition of the manifold ways in which the Holy Spirit renews and revitalises the life of faith. The book is not only grounded soundly in Sacred Scripture, and its teaching linked to the spiritual patrimony of the Church, it is also enriched by contemporary testimonies which reveal the power and fruitfulness of the Spirit at work in the Church today."
-- Bishop Julian Porteous, Auxiliary bishop of the Archdiocese of Sydney
This latest book by Fr. Ken Barker MGL is a delight; simple to read but profound in the message it brings. He draws largely on his experience of the Holy Spirit’s activity in his own life, and also that of others, through the “baptism in the Spirit”. I believe that this book will encourage readers to totally surrender their lives to receive what Fr Ken calls the “kiss of the Spirit”.
-- Allan Panozza, former president of the ICCRS
