Publisher's Description

Spiritual Gifts, given by God, empower believers to serve others in both the church and the world. However, our own spiritual gifts today aren't always easy to identify. What gifts are there? How should they be used? Which gifts apply to the apostolic era? which apply to us?

Even among serious, searching believers, there are still divisive questions. Can light be shed on these issues? Vern Poythress illuminates them by turning to the authority of Scripture and allowing it to speak for itself.

"Here you have a clear, biblical, right-minded, health-giving survey of a very tricky subject. Poythress's treatment is masterly."
- J. I. Packer, Regent College

Dr. Poythress employs his gifts of teaching and discernment to clarify what the Bible says about the gifts of the Spirit and to guard against doctrinal and practical error. He addresses the hard issues head on, using a simply but sophisticated framework to demonstrate the full variety of gifts and the wide breadth of the Spirit's work in the church."
- Philip Graham Ryken, Wheaton College
