"This conservative evangelical scholarly work gives a solid theological basis for further development of a practical theology of spiritual gifts." --John Wimber, Vineyard Christian Fellowship

"Careful, thorough, wise, and to my mind, convincing." --J.I. Packer

"...a fresh, biblically sound, readable contribution...its depth of scholarship, pastoral solidity, and cautions against abuses are special strengths. Highly recommended." --Vern S. Poythress, Professor of New Testament Interpretation, Westminster Theological Seminary

"If Grudem's convincing thesis could be heard, a new path of dialog could perhaps be opened up in the Christian community. The research, clarity, and typical Grudem candor continue to make this the finest book on the subject to date." --L. Russ Bush, Professor of Philosophy of Religion, Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary

"...thorough, biblical, and practical. It deserves the attention of all who are concerned about the spiritual development of the church today." --Stanley Horton, Distinguished Professor Emeritus of Bible and Theology, Assemblies of God Theological Seminary

    Objective and Credible.

    This is the third of Grudem's book I've read. His writing is credible because he is not trying to please any one denomination, theological or world view. His exegesis is excellent and as he walked me through various scriptures it has been easy for me to improve my interpretation skills.
    My prayer is that people and church leaders will "get it" regarding the importance of this spiritual gift.
