Christian RetailingThose who hold the conventional view of the spiritual gifts—listed in Ephesians 4, Romans 12, I Corinthians 12—describe them as special abilities, powers and enablements. Contrary to this view—which, the author asserts, leads believers to focus on individual gifts or powers as opposed to God—Berding offers another perspective, defining the gifts as ministries and focusing on believers' roles, functions and assignments in the community of faith. Believers are encouraged to replace the question "What are my special abilities?" with "Where does God want me to serve?" Equally accessible to scholars and general readers, Berding's work is highly recommended for all thoughtful Christians, as his topic leaves no believer untouched.
