A dramatic change took place in Jack Deere's life when he took a fresh look at the Scriptures. He discovered that his arguments against miraculous gifts were based more on prejudice and lack of personal experience than on the Bible. As soon as Deere became a seeker instead of a skeptic, the Holy Spirit revealed himself in new and surprising ways.
In Surprised by the Power of the Spirit, Deere provides a strong biblical defense for the Spirit's speaking and healing ministries today. He also describes several reliable cases of people who were miraculously healed or who heard God speak in an unmistakable way. Finally, he gives sound advice for using spiritual gifts in the church.
Written in a popular style, with the care of a scholar but the passion of personal experience, Surprised by the Power of the Spirit explores:
- the real reason Christians do not believe in miraculous gifts
- responding to charismatic abuses
- whether miracles were meant to be temporary
- why God still heals

What caused a former Dallas Seminary professor to believe that the miraculous gifts of the Holy Spirit are being given today? What convinced someone skeptical about miracles that God still speaks and heals? A dramatic change took place in Jack Deeres life when he took a fresh look at the Scriptures. He discovered that his cherished arguments against miraculous gifts were based more on prejudice and a lack of personal experience than on the Bible. As soon as Deere became a seeker instead of a skeptic, the Holy Spirit revealed himself in new and surprising ways. In Surprised by the Power of the Spirit, Jack Deere provides a strong biblical defense for the Spirits speaking and healing ministries today. He also describes several reliable cases of people who were miraculously healed or who heard God speak in an unmistakable way. Finally, he gives sound advice for using spiritual gifts in the church. Written in popular style-with the care of a scholar but the passion of personal experience-this book is a vital resource for people on both sides of the debate about miraculous gifts.

Ian Kitchen5 Stars Out Of 5July 11, 2010Ian KitchenThis has been an awesome book for me. After having experience in both cessationist and charismatic settings, I've always wondered if miraculous gifts were still something that should be pursued today. This book, through a clear exposition of the Bible (both gospels and epistles), shows that we should never try to quench the workings of the Spirit.Deere treats the topic with care. He clearly states the position of continuation of spiritual gifts, but makes sure to address charismatic abuses, which was very important to me. He makes it known that administering of the gifts is all controlled by God's sovereign will. He addresses both cessationist and charismatic fallacies alike, and uses the Bible objectively and clearly. The biggest thing I've taken away from reading this book is, if God gives us the same Spirit that he gave the early church (we do believe God is unchanging, right?), why should we expect that he would stop working supernaturally through us?Do yourself a favor and buy this book, no matter your position. Expect to learn a lot about how big our God truly is!
Brad5 Stars Out Of 5December 16, 2008BradThis has been a very enlightening read for me. I was raised Pentecostal and the thought had never crossed my mind that someone would think that the gifts of the Holy Spirit aren't active today.
Todd Vaters5 Stars Out Of 5April 23, 2002Todd VatersWith the solid Biblical reasoning one might expect from this former Dallas Theological Seminary professor and with the earnestness of a passionate charismatic, Jack Deere presents a compelling case for modern day miraculous gifts. I'm purchasing several copies to pass around.
Bob Lawther5 Stars Out Of 5July 14, 2000Bob LawtherI found Jack Deere's book really helpful. It is a balanced defense of the Signs and Wonders movement. I am a Pentecostal, so I don't completely identify with the cessationist aspects of Deere's past, but I have always been openly suspicious of the self styled prophets who suppose to give a word from the Lord. Deere takes seriously concerns about subjectivity, manipulation and false prophecy. He writes in an easy to read narrative style. I highly recommend this book and I intend to read others.
