How the Holy Spirit works in the world through the gifts of the Spirit
God never intended to accomplish the work of the church through human effort but through believers endowed with special spiritual qualifications whom the Spirit could direct and through whom He could work. The gifts of the Spirit are not intended only for some believers--they are for every believer.
In The Gifts of the Spirit Dr. Verna M. Linzey includes a historical review of the work of the Holy Spirit and provides a clear understanding of how the Holy Spirit works in the lives of believers. Expounding on pertinent scriptures and sharing her experiences as a daughter of the Azusa Street Revival, Dr. Linzey provides both practical application and theological analysis of each of these gifts, including:
- Words of wisdom and knowledge
- Healings and miracles
- Discerning of spirits
- Tongues and their interpretation
Whether you are a new believer or one who has been in the faith for years, this book will help you to walk out God's purpose in your life.
