By Duane S. Crowther
In How to Recognize Spiritual Promptings, well-known author and theologian Duane S. Crowther presents valuable assistance to help you recognize and discern your spiritual promptings. Using key revelations from the Doctrine & Covenants as a guide, he describes the mental and physical sensations which are characteristics of the Holy Ghost’s communications. Scriptural references and historical vignettes are sources for describing sensations such as a burning in the bosom, a feeling of rightness, a distinct message is given, peace and certainty, joy and happiness, calmness and security, fearlessness, activeness, attraction, and movements of the Spirit within the body.
As you seek the guidance of the Holy Ghost, can you discern whether ideas come from your own thinking or from the promptings of the Spirit? The CD also treats the need for verifying revelation and inspiration and cites the Lord’s promise that “I will confirm all my words.” Three penetrating questions are posed for helping to discern whether claimed revelations are valid. How to Recognize Spiritual Promptings fills a significant need by providing useful guidelines and examples to which you can compare your own experiences and sensations. It is a useful basis for personal growth in understanding the guidelines and gifts of the Holy Ghost.
