The title says it all. This is Jamie Buckingham’s testimony in which he begins with the premise that there is much more to our Christian experience than what first meets the eye. Our lives are like placid lakes which are, however, deeply polluted. We have customarily pushed the pain of unhappy experiences beneath the surface where it stays quite alive in the subconscious mind. Thus it is that, at conversion, the Holy Spirit may make some dramatic-looking changes in our lives, but the bulk of our sin remains, largely untouched, hidden beneath the surface. If, however, we continue to follow Jesus, choosing his way instead of our own, the Holy Spirit will lead us to people and circumstances that will bring our sin to the surface where it can be confessed and forgiven. And what, specifically, are some of the people and circumstances that God has employed in Jamie’s life. The answer to that question is what makes this book lively reading. To bring him to the baptism of the Spirit there were his wife, his publisher, and some harsh confrontations with his pride. He also tells how he learned to forgive old debts, how he, a Southern Baptist, was baptized in Cape Code Bay by an Episcopal priest, and what his son’s experience with music taught him about demons. He tells, too, how writing books and getting published helped him see another side of his voracious ego. And he broaches the sensitive subject of one’s relationship with one’s parents. When Christ calls a man to follow Him, Buckingham learned through hard experience, he must sever idolatrous and sentimental relationship — especially blood relationships — in order to make room for the genuine love of God. And what does all this tribulation and discomfort produce. Jamie Buckingham says that what he’s experienced so far had produced a solid contentment. He does not regret opening himself to the searching work of God. It is painful, no doubt, but the peace and freedom have been well worth the risk. Risky Living Ministries, Inc. www.rlmin.com

About the Author:

Jamie Buckingham spent his entire adult life in ministry. He devoted his writing and speaking talents and sacrificed his time to teach and spread the gospel, eventually becoming an internationally renowned author, columnist, and conference speaker. He was a friend to nearly every significant Christian leader in the charismatic movement until his death in 1992 at the age of 59. Jamie was the author of more than 40 books, including Run Baby Run, (with Nicky Cruz), Tramp for the Lord, (with Corrie ten Boom). Shout it from the Housetops (with Pat Robertson) Daughter of Destiny (with Kathryn Kulman), and Mission (chronicling U.S. Senator Bill Nelson’s trip into space aboard the space shuttle). Other popular books included Risky Living, Where Eagles Soar, The Nazarene and Summer of Miracles. He was also a regular columnist for Charisma and Christian Life magazine and other publications. Jamie traveled frequently, but his favorite destination was always the land of Israel. He produced several video series and workbooks teaching biblical lessons “on site.” He also wrote the book A Way Through the Wilderness, which follows the actual footsteps of Moses as he led the children of Israel through the Sinai Desert. While Jamie’s ministry reached around the world, his true love was always the local church he pastored for nearly twenty-five years, the Tabernacle Church in Melbourne, Florida. Jamie founded the Tabernacle Church at a time when he was seeking a deeper relationship with Christ—a search that quickly led him to a fuller understanding of what it means to be truly filled with the Holy Spirit. (Not coincidentally, this was the same time his writing career began to take off.) The church started as a small group of several families and some friends, but it soon outgrew its original facilities. In a few short years, the “Tab,” as it was affectionately known, overflowed on Sunday mornings and evenings, as people traveled from all over the country to listen to Jamie and see what the Holy Spirit was doing in the sleepy beach town of Melbourne. To Jamie, church was all about relationships. His teaching struck a balance between bringing God’s Word to new believers and feeding the sheep who already made up the body of Christ. He had a special gift for weaving stories about everyday situations into life-changing lessons about the love, mercy, and power of God.
