“I am an elder in a church that engages with God in genuine worship, seeks maturity through dynamic preaching, loves compassionately in community, expresses mercy to the disenfranchised, and multiplies through intentional missionality. Thankful for God’s many blessings, we long for more of his grace, especially through an outpouring of the Spirit’s gifts. But how can our church experience this renewing power? It seems Sam Storms wrote this book to guide our church in this quest. I think it is for your church too!”

“Sam Storms has done it again. This book combines sound theology with inspiring personal examples, together with practical ways to express the compassion of Jesus to others by partnering with him in spiritual gifts. Sam successfully demystifies what it means to obey the Apostle Paul’s injunction to earnestly desire spiritual gifts (1 Cor. 12:31; 14:1). I highly recommend this book for anyone seeking to grow in this dimension of the grace of God, and especially pastors seeking to lead their flock into a deeper experience as empowered evangelicals who want all that Jesus provides for us.”
International House of Prayer of Kansas City
“Few people write on spiritual gifts as wisely, biblically and helpfully as Sam Storms. This book covers all kinds of practical and theological questions about the use of the gifts, and does so with insight and clarity—so if you’re looking for answers to any of them, look no further.”
Andrew Wilson, Teaching Pastor at King’s Church London.
“Sam has written an immensely practical book on the gifts of the Spirit that will help anyone who longs to experience the Holy Spirit’s gifts and see those gifts meaningfully integrated into the life of their church.”
Former Professor of Old Testament Exegesis and Semitic Languages at Dallas Seminary, pastor, and author of Surprised by the Power of the Spirit.
"Dr. Martin Lloyd-Jones said that he spent half his time telling people to know theology and the other half telling them knowledge of theology wasn’t enough. That’s what Storms does in this book! A practical, extremely timely book combining the precision of theology with a yearning for experience. Your outlook on your walk with Jesus will not be the same after you read it. If you long for a Christian experience that is not in “word” only, you’ll love this book!"
