Are Miraculous Gifts for Today? takes you to the heart of one of the most dividing questions in the Church today: how are the Holy Spirits miracles at work among God's people now?
Is he still actively giving the gifts of tongues, prophecy, and healing that fill the book of Acts? Is he driving out demons when Christians command them to flee? Or are these events confined to the time of the early church and the apostles?
This volume of the Counterpoints series provides an impartial format for comparing the four main positions on present-day miracles (including the history and distinctions between the three positions that affirm miraculous gifts) with voice also given to a large sector of open-but-cautious evangelicals:
- Cessationist: there are no miraculous gifts of the Holy Spirit today.
- Pentecostal: gifts are intended for today, with certain nuances focused on baptism and speaking in tongues.
- Charismatic: gifts are intended for today and should be actively practiced.
- Third Wave: gifts are intended for today, with greater emphasis on baptism and less on tongues.
This thought-provoking book will help Christians on every side of the miraculous gifts debate to better understand their own position and the positions of others.
The Counterpoints series presents a comparison and critique of scholarly views on topics important to Christians that are both fair-minded and respectful of the biblical text. Each volume is a one-stop reference that allows readers to evaluate the different positions on a specific issue and form their own, educated opinion.
