So I am a discerner, now what? Maybe that was your question as you picked up this book. Perhaps you are more mature in discernment and surprised that someone has written about it, but you are reading it out of curiosity. Either way, the Holy Spirit is going to meet you where you are! Holy Spirit has something amazing in store for you, to help you navigate this gift. I feel His heart on it. Many discerners have had the gift since birth but have been unsure of what they carry. They have been misunderstood, isolated, and rejected.
Here are some insights to this book:
If you are one seeking to be mentored in the things of the Spirit the good news is you hold in your hand the priceless personal insights of one who has gone before you. In this book, April Stutzman reveals her very personal journey of discovery into the Discerning of Spirits. Not many people are prepared to share what you will read here for fear of being ridiculed, thought strange, or a misfit. However, if you have ever picked up thoughts that were not your own, received unexplainable feelings on certain parts of your body, or sensed or seen angels then it's likely you were operating in the discerning of spirits. April provides wisdom in how she learned to navigate these experiences. The sad truth is many misunderstand these glimpses into the world of spirits around them and consequently fail to reach the fullness of their spiritual potential. Discerning of spirits is a complimentary gift and for that reason, it is often overlooked. However, this gift of the Holy Spirit enhances and fine-tunes all the other gifts including deliverance, counsel, dream interpretation, and the delivery of prophecy. This is a timely and easy-to-read journey of discovery that will add years of experience and broaden your personal understanding into the multi-faceted voice of Gods Spirit.

It would be difficult to imagine a better moment in history for a book on the subject of discerning of spirits. With the current seemingly continual conflict between political ideologies, economic systems, gender identities and identity politics, sexual morays, and the pervasive role of government in every area of life we must be able to see the world through Gods eyes and act decisively and confidently by His grace.
Traditional mindsets will not show us how to live in these chaotic times. We must know Gods will and to be able to articulate it against every vain philosophy and worldly orientation to be overcomers.
I heartily recommend April Stutzmans book, The Chronicles of a Discerner, as a helpful guide through the confusing maze of modern demonic agendas that besiege todays professing Christians at every turn.
