Praise for this book
The Fruit of the Soul edited by D. Constantine-Simms is a collection of more than 30 inspirational stories based on the original biblical term "Fruit of the Spirit" cited in Galatians 5:22-23, which sums up the nine visible attributes of a true Christian life, which are love, joy, peace, long suffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, meekness and temperance. What I find amazing about this book, is that the majority of the narratives, combine religious and contemporary expressions of Christ like traits, which are commensurate with God's expectations of Christians. Fruit of the Soul is without doubt, an excellent spiritual development tool, that engages and enables readers to appreciate that the nine aforementioned classified traits are not individual "fruits" from which they can pick choose and refuses at will. Rather, this book subtly reinforces the notion that the fruit of the Spirit is one nine fold "fruit" that characterizes all who truly walk in the Holy Spirit. Collectively, the message emanating from this book provides readers with a safe yet stretching environment, where they can honour and learn to discern and receive God's message in their own time, with a view to living up to the standards which Christians are expected to exude and live by as "Fruit of the Spirit" Another wonderful aspect of "Fruit of the Soul" is the books ability to offers readers a gentle yet tenacious opportunity to appreciate God's loving spirit, through spiritual self-direction, self learning while encouraging them to integrate and express God's love in their everyday choices. Many readers aspiring to live up to the Christ like traits, who are not quite ready to ready to contemplate reading complex religious text or listen to the interpretations of Jesus Christ from a fire bring speaking pastor or preacher should consider reading this book. This book is excellent and was certainly a good read, and yes the book was a certainly a worthwhile Easter present one of the best I have had for a long time.
