Spiritual Gifts

What They Are and Why They Matter
By: Thomas R. Schreiner

Book Review

A very short, accessible book on spiritual gifts. I don't recall reading many other books like this on spiritual gifts. I usually have studied them from commentaries or systematic theology books. Thus, I feel like this book is needed. It would be a book I would give to any church goer that wanted to learn more.

I would consider myself a "soft cessationist" and it seems that is what Schreiner is too (he calls it nuanced cessationism). I found it interesting that he explained that he used to be a continuationist and then over time became a cessationist. Perhaps that explains his charitableness as he handles the topic. I have read plenty of material on the gifts where the author is less that kind and very dogmatic.

Book Reviews

I am nuts about books. I read on all kinds of topics. I attempt to review each book I read for the sake of my own enrichment as well as conversation starters with others.
