We all have deep longings and desires that can only be filled by His empowering presence. While many spiritual classics contain repeated references to a particular spiritual exercise: the cultivation of an ongoing awareness of Christ's empowering presence, Gary Tyra makes the claim that this particular activity is at the heart of Christian spirituality and provides the reader with:

  • A clear vision of what the experience of Christ's empowering presence looks like
  • Citations from the spiritual masters that will serve to inspire them over and over again to make it their intention to live the rest of their lives enjoying Christ's empowering presence
  • A thoughtful discussion of the means by which this key spiritual dynamic can be experienced on a daily, moment-by-moment, basis.

"Christ's Empowering Presence will benefit new believers who desire to learn what it means to live as Christians, as well as seasoned followers who have never delved into the classics of Christian literature. It whets the appetite for more and can start you on a new journey of learning from giants of the faith and pursuing Christ's powerful influence in your own daily activities."
