Reviews - What do customers think about Gifts & Ministries Of The Holy Spirit?
It's a good practical book to inform and stir your interest Feb 20, 2002
This book is a good primer on the Holy Spirit and the gifts. I don't believe that the author intended to be deep, but I believe that he wanted to pen a book that was assessible to most readers. There are those who would argue that the author assumes a Pentecostal stance, but he does have the right to write about the gifts based on his experience as long as he doesn't violate Scripture. He does not. He speaks about the gifts of the Spirit operating in his own life and also relates the gifts to what is reflected in the lives of biblical characters. Once again, this book is not meant to be a deep theological tome. They do exist. For those readers seeking greater depth and scholarship, I would suggest looking at The Holy Spirit and Spiritual Gifts: In the New Testatment Chuch and Today by Max Turner. Other authors to consider are Gorodn D. Fee, Richard Hays, and Craig Blomberg.
Not exceptional Mar 26, 2000
This book has good information and helpful understanding of the individual gifts. However, I found it not very well written, and also somewhat biased toward a pentecostal or "Full Gospel" understanding of the spiritual gifts, which is good, but I felt that he was not very well rounded in his understanding, presenting one interpretation only.
This book is a MUST! Oct 13, 1999
I haven't even finished the book and I love it! Dr. Sumrall does a great job defining the gifts, their purposes, and examples on how they're used! This book is a must for Holy Ghost Christians who are seeking spiritual gifts. You've got to buy it!
