Gifted is a response to St. Paul's admonition in the Book of Corinthians to set our hearts on spiritual gifts, especially the gift of prophecy. These factors are examined in the context of the spiritual gifts, friendship with Jesus, and prophetic summaries.
Various life styles are examined. How are we living? How should we live? And how could we live starting now in God's Kingdom? Surprisingly, our life does not end with our earthly demise. Our eternal life can be up or down, in a vacuum, or surrounded by God's love. It is totally dependent on our acceptance or rejection of God's plan.
To assist us in the progression from a secular life to a spiritual life, the numerous God-given gifts are examined. Also God's words spoken in modern prophecies are quoted. If you have ever wondered about God's thoughts besides those in scripture, his words will enlighten you. The overall evidence of God's love for us is shown throughout Gifted.

This is an excellent book and should be necessary reading for anyone who desires to draw closer to the Kingdom of God. Fortunately I know the author as he is a member of my church. This is his second book and he is working on the third. The book itself contains the truth. I like the fact it is written in short paragraphs which are easy to understand. Through experiences with the Lord I know that the signs, wonders, and miracles are actual because I have experienced them myself. I enjoyed the frequent quotes of scripture on which our belief is based. In the later part of the book the author journals his experiences with the Lord and frequently speaks of love to illustrate what he is seeing and hearing.
I love the way this book tells in down to earth language how we are called to be Gods representatives here on earth, and how He gives us the tools to do so. Many in today's world are unfamiliar with the Gifts of the Spirit and Jerry gives an easy to understand explanation of these gifts. He also uses scripture to show how these gifts are meant for all believers in today's world. He also includes many words of knowledge that have been given to the church over the past few decades, which shows God's love to us, and how He desires us to mature and give out this love to others. For someone who is unfamiliar with Christianity or for a mature Christian, this book gives straight forward, easy to comprehend ways that the Holy Spirit uses to reach us with Gods love and direction for us.
