Editorial Reviews

From the Back Cover

Our churches have hardly begun to tap the potential in the pews. Many Christians have settled for far less than God intends because many have never discovered or developed their spiritual gifts. "An understanding of Ephesians 4:11-16 has changed my entire perspective on my Christian service. I discovered that one of my highest priorities must be equipping the saints for their work of service. Pursuing this objective I have made a second discovery. Exceedingly few believers are conscious of possessing a spiritual gift, and even fewer know what their gift is or what to do about it. My third discovery is that few things can be of greater assistance to a Christian in setting his own priorities or discerning the will of God than knowing his own gift. These are the discoveries that have motivated me to prepare this book," says the author. Included are chapters on: - The Definition of a Gift - The Distribution of the Gifts - A Description of the Gifts - The Distinctions Within the Gifts.

Format: Paperback
An excellent, practical overview of the spiritual gifts that are available today. He contrasts the nature of the gifts to talents, the fruit of the Spirit, ministries etc. to put them in the clearest light. This has become our standard text in our course on spiritual gifts in the Twin Cities Bible Institute.

Format: Paperback
This book is an excellent review of the spiritual gifts, including their origin, purpose, and use in the local church. I appreciate the fact that it is thoroughly biblical and doctrinally sound. It is must reading for anyone who is seriously seeking to understand the nature of spiritual gifts.

4 of 4 people found the following review helpful By George A. Goolde on July 1, 2006
Format: Paperback
This is the finest work available on spiritual gifts. The author carefully defines spiritual gifts, distinguishing them from talents (p21), offices (p18) and fruit (p18). He identifies 18 spiritual gifts, combining service and helps (p47) and ruling and administration (p44). He holds pastor-teacher to be a single gift with two dimensions (p59). McRae is a cessationist, believing that some of the gifts were needed only until the canon of Scripture was complete and the apostles had passed off the scene (pp 55, 65,66,72, 73, 75, 80). His tone is irenic and constructive. McRae considers celebacy and hospitality, but removes them from his list (p80). He has an excellent section on women and spiritual gifts (pp 85-86). McRae identifies prayer, study, desire, ability, and blessing as five steps to identifying one's spiritual gift (p110).

Overall, the remarkable thing about this book is that it treats a controversial subject biblically, gently, and succinctly. Even those who disagree with some of MacRae's conclusions will find much profit here. The price is right, too.

Format: Paperback
I have referred to this book many times over the years. I have recommended it to many of my students and fellow classmates in Sunday School, my Bible Institute classes and Bible studies. It is excellent for laymen and answers many of the questions the average Christian has without being too technical.

This book written by William McRae is an excellent book. It has a lot of illustration, real life examples and very clear explanations of each gift.
