Review Title: Recognizing Spiritual Gifts (review of Releasing Spiritual Gifts Today by James Goll)
Reviewer: Janice S. Garey
***** 5 Stars
The book, Releasing Spiritual Gifts Today, by James Goll, gives hope for recognizing numerous spiritual blessings available to believers. Often, as God’s word says, we don’t have because we don’t ask. Many don’t ask because they are unaware of what is available. Read this book to boost your knowledge of the possibilities existing for faithful disciples. I appreciate that the author makes clear that all spiritual gifts are available to all believers, not just to an exclusive group. But he also explains that people can be exceptionally gifted according to God’s need in particular areas, in other words, there are specialty giftings.
Practice with gifts and growth in faith with practice will help generate fruitfulness in the lives of believing disciples. Usually God impresses on a believer that they need to do something unusual, something other people might consider to be weird, that will test the believers willingness to be obedient. It is that stepping forward in faith that releases supernatural God based miracles.
I enjoyed the progression through the spiritual gifts in the book starting with the revelatory gifts, moving on to the power gifts, and ending with the vocal gifts. This organization of the gifts into three major categories provides a good foundation for understanding.
This book will be good for those who want greater knowledge of spiritual gifts than one might receive in a more general way from a sermon. Most Christians will find useful application of information presented in this book.
I received this book from bookfun.org in exchange for reading it and posting an honest review. I thank the author and publisher for making it available through the bookfun.org reviewers group.
