Taken Into Time "By The Spirit of God" by Joseph Gartenmayer

In this brief and intriguing testimonial, Gartenmayer recounts his experiences with God.  He tells his story of salvation and being visited by the Holy Spirit for the first time, and how his life dramatically changed.   He recounts stories of being in the military and working in a jail and the things that God showed him through those experiences.  There are stories of being taken up "in spirit" to visit heaven, to see Jesus at the cross, and experiences with angels and demons.  

This is not a good book to "review" as such, I would never dare to critique someone's personal testimony.   There should be a healthy fear and responsibility associated with thoughts and statements such as, "this is or isn't of God."  I  believe every word, as I have personally had experiences with God in such ways, as well as hearing many other such stories from around the world of these kind of "interactions."  If they happened in the bible, it is possible to experience such things now.  

At times I wondered, "who is this book geared toward?  Believers or people that don't yet know Jesus?"  I would say the answer is both.  There is much to glean here.  One thing Gartenmayer makes no qualms about is that it is not a teaching book.  There are no scriptural references, simply a statement leading the reader to read the bible and find out more about God. 

All in all, I would like to thank Gartenmayer for his contribution.  One day we will meet, whether on earth or in heaven my friend.

I got this book from BookSneeze for free, contingent on an unbiased review.  This book is for sale for $3.99 digital copy on Amazon, great price.

If you are interested in these and other such stories, here are some websites that I would recommend.
