    Life Changing for us, Cessationists

    Listening to a Seminary professor who was cessationist as I was, but now has changed based on biblical proof, I now am searching for the truth. The Spirit recently illuminated John 7:38 to me in this regard. I did not see "from my innermost being rivers of living water flowing", not even when I am Spirit-filled and preach the word of God boldly. No, it is not because I am in sin, or do not preach the gospel and not because I do not love others. I have quenched the Holy Spirit long enough, telling Him that He is not to give me spiritual gifts ... Forgive me Father for putting you in a box of my theology. Equip me to live my life for You, and doing so to die for your kingdom. Glory to You forever and ever, Amen!

    This book changed my life in many ways. Anyone questioning the extent of God's interventions in our world should read this.

    This 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!

    This 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.

    With 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.
