Reviewer: Janice S. Garey
***** 5 Stars
The book, Releasing Spiritual Gifts Today, by James Goll, gives hope for recognizing numerous spiritual blessings available to believers. Often, as God's word says, we don't have because we don't ask. Many don't ask because they are unaware of what is available. Read this book to boost your knowledge of the possibilities existing for faithful disciples. I appreciate that the author makes clear that all spiritual gifts are available to all believers, not just to an exclusive group. But he also explains that people can be exceptionally gifted according to God's need in particular areas, in other words, there are specialty giftings.
Practice with gifts and growth in faith with practice will help generate fruitfulness in the lives of believing disciples. Usually God impresses on a believer that they need to do something unusual, something other people might consider to be weird, that will test the believers willingness to be obedient. It is that stepping forward in faith that releases supernatural God based miracles.
I enjoyed the progression through the spiritual gifts in the book starting with the revelatory gifts, moving on to the power gifts, and ending with the vocal gifts. This organization of the gifts into three major categories provides a good foundation for understanding.
This book will be good for those who want greater knowledge of spiritual gifts than one might receive in a more general way from a sermon. Most Christians will find useful application of information presented in this book.
I received this book from bookfun.org in exchange for reading it and posting an honest review. I thank the author and publisher for making it available through the bookfun.org reviewers group.
nkwbookreviewer4 Stars Out Of 5Releasing Spiritual Gifts TodaySeptember 20, 2016nkwbookreviewerQuality: 5Value: 4Meets Expectations: 4"Releasing Spiritual Gifts Today" written by author James W. Goll is a Pentecostal & Charismatic/Religion book. Published by Whitaker House this paperback is 189 pages long. The front cover has the title and opened hands that are filled with light.
Author Goll has divided his book into four parts after acknowledgments, foreword and preface. Each section has three chapters. After the twelve chapter there is a closing, notes, resource material, and information about the author. The first section is "Introduction to Spiritual Gifts" and reviews what they are, how the Holy Spirit Moves, and how to grow in exercising these gifts. He broaches subjects such as why God gives spiritual gifts, the gift of prophecy, how to respond and avoiding negative responses to the Holy Spirit, and building faith. These chapters are heavily soaked with scripture. The last three section deal with three gifts each.
In the next section is"Revelatory Gifts - Gifts that Reveal" are three chapters on discerning the spirit, wisdom, and knowledge. Part three looks at "Gifts that Do" such as faith, healing, and working miracles. The final section is on "Gifts that Speak" which are speaking in tongues, interpretation of tongues, and prophecy. Using scripture, testimonies, and personal stories author Goll elaborates on each of the nine gifts.
There are more than nine gifts. In the first chapter of his book, the author lists "A Multiplicity of Gifts". He has twenty five listed with biblical references by each one. Explanation that he chose to focus on the particular nine in his book cites I Corinthians chapter 12. I enjoyed the chapter on prophecy because a friend and I have been discussing that lately. It is the chapter twelve and extremely interesting.
This is a very well written, organized book. The author has researched it well. His writing style makes the subject interesting and easy to understand. The way the book was divided into four sections helped tremendously. The information is presented in such a way that the book was hard to put down. I wanted to keep reading it and learn more.
I would recommend this book to anyone who is interested in spiritual gifts, prophecy, or charismatic and Pentecostal books. If you are interested in finding your spiritual gift this book will help. If you want to grow in your faith, this book will help with that, also. I rated this 4 out of 5 stars. I received a copy of this book from The Book Club Network in exchange for my honest review.

James Goll shares about the gifts of the Spirit and offers practical tips for their operation in everyday life.

Helen MAge: 55-65Gender: Female4 Stars Out Of 5Spiritual GiftsApril 28, 2016Helen MAge: 55-65Gender: FemaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 4Releasing Spiritual Gifts Today is written by James W. Goll. This book explains to us spiritual gifts and explains how the Holy Spirit moves through them. Spiritual gifts are tools that you need to practice using. They are given by God for ministry to take place for the good of the Body of Christ. They are given though us as acts of kindness, mercy and love towards others and we are to give them as God shows us to.
Spiritual gifts are broken up into 3 types. Revelatory Gifts are the gifts that reveal, gifts of discerning of Spirits, word of wisdom and word of knowledge. Power Gifts are the gifts that do, gifts of faith, healing and miracles. Vocal Gifts are the gifts that speak, Gift of various kinds of tongues, gift of interpretation of tongues, and the gift of prophecy.
The gifts that were interesting to me were the gift of knowledge, the gift of miracles and the gift of prophecy.. The gift of knowledge is explained as having a gut feeling about something. You know you know something but you do not know how you know it. The book explains that no one knows everything, only God does. The gift of miracles is something I have witnessed. Miracles are a gift, you do not earn them, and they are only given by God. You will almost always find that a miracle was sparked by an act of obedience. The gift of prophecy does not predict the future as one might think. It is a word of encouragement that is personalized and aligned with scripture. It is meant to build up a person's faith, encourage them to do good deeds and to comfort them. Page 168 in the book has a scriptural test to confirm is the prophecy is a gift of the spirit.
This book is very interesting. I appreciate the author explaining the proper times to use spiritual gifts and the reason for them. This book is very helpful in understanding Spiritual Gifts and is an encouragement to take the step to pray for a Spiritual Gift.
I was given this book by The BookClub Network for an honest review.
