Overview

Concentrating on the nine gifts that the apostle Paul listed together in 1 Corinthians 12, Dr. Sam Storms gives readers a biblical introduction to the spiritual gifts that God bestows on every generation of believers. He combines a solid biblical foundation and practical advice with first-hand illustrations of these gifts in action. Spiritual gifts are nothing less than God himself in us, energizing our souls, imparting revelation to our minds, infusing power in our wills, and working his sovereign and gracious purposes through us. Spiritual gifts, writes the author, "are God's answer to the human questions, 'Why can't we do that?' ... What the church needs is truth set aflame by the power of the Holy Spirit." Where spiritual gifts are concerned, Storms wants Christians to be educated, equipped, and expectant, helping them to overcome fears of emotionalism and the unfamiliar. Welcome to an adventure of discovery!
