It’s easy to talk the spiritual talk. But how do we walk the Spirit-ual walk?
If you want to live the life of abundance promised by Jesus, you must learn what it means to walk with the Holy Spirit. Here is a wise, biblical, and practical guide to living life in the Spirit as outlined in Romans 8. Filled with real-life examples and engaging personal stories, Berding offers an invaluable message to many of us who either ignore, forget, or want to know more of the Spirit’s role in the Christian life.
“At last, a book that I can recommend to the average Christian about holiness, intimacy with God, and the power of the Holy Spirit! In more than 20 years of pastoral ministry I have learned that there is almost universal discouragement—at least at times—in our battle with sin. So many resources offer strategies of accountability or behavior change, but aren’t grounded in the deep truth that God alone has the power to transform us. Others seem to take a simplistic, “Let go, let God” approach that may sound good, but leaves us disheartened when we struggle to live it out. Still others are written at a level that is not readily accessible to all readers. Berding has given us a great gift in Walking in the Spirit in that his book is engaging, eminently practical, and most of all, profoundly biblical. If you want to grow deep in your walk with God and experience real power to be like Jesus you need to read this book.”

“There is so much confusion among Christians about the Holy Spirit, and I am thankful that Berding has written a much-needed book in layman’s language. It is at once biblical, irenic, and charitable. I recommend it to pastors with the hope that they will give copies to their congregations.”
Lyle W. Dorsett, Director Emeritus, Marion E. Wade Center; Billy Graham Professor of Evangelism Emeritus, Beeson Divinity School; author, And God Came In and Seeking the Secret Place
“Berding captures profound spiritual truths and shares them in a comfortable, down-home fashion that will make you smile, nod, and ponder. When you apply the principles of Walking in the Spirit, you will live life differently; you will experience more of the Spirit of God and be able to say with confidence as you approach the end of your life, “I know Him and am eager to meet Him!”
Dan LaGasse, Missionary, Operation Mobilization; Missions Pastor, Venture Christian Church, Los Gatos, California
“How do I move from a place of confessing belief in the Holy Spirit to experiencing the Holy Spirit’s transforming presence in a more profound way? Walking in the Spirit offers us an array of practical insights that will help new believers as well as those who have been Christians for many years.”
Clinton E. Arnold, Dean and Professor of New Testament Language and Literature, Talbot School of Theology, Biola University
“It’s easy to talk the spiritual talk. But how do we walk the Spirit-ual walk? In this book, Ken Berding offers a practical, biblical, wise guide to life in the Holy Spirit, as outlined in Romans 8. Filled with real-life examples and engaging personal stories, Walking in the Spirit is as much a spiritual autobiography as it is an instructional Bible study. Straightforward, humble, and easy-to-read, Berding’s book is nevertheless a strikingly deep, important study—the sort of solid spiritual food an increasingly anemic generation should hunger for. Walking in the Spirit recalibrates our understanding of the ministry of the Holy Spirit, providing an invaluable corrective to many of us who have either ignored, forgotten, or misunderstood the role of the Spirit in the Christian life.”
Brett McCracken, Senior Editor, The Gospel Coalition; author, Uncomfortable and Hipster Christianity
“Ken Berding is a man who walks with God in the power of the Spirit. This walk is grounded in Scripture and through this book we are blessed by the insights of this godly man and first-rate scholar. Those wanting to know more of the Spirit’s work in their lives will be helped greatly by what this book offers.”
