The first thing that you must learn about spiritual gifts is that you have one. You may not realize it, but you function in your gift daily.
God has equipped each member of the Body of Christ with a special ability to do His will. This "special ability" is called a spiritual gift.
Many readers of this book will feel a sense of discovery of who they are in Christ. They will discover their spiritual gifts for the first time, and they will learn how to move forward in the ministry that God has entrusted to them.
What does the Bible really say about marriage, divorce, and remarriage? Where does the divorced person stand with regard to remarriage or ministry? This book is an easy-reading explanation of what God has to say about these important issues. It is truly 'A Biblical View of Marriage, Divorce, and Remarriage.'
What others are saying...
"As an AG minister, I was especially interested in Dr. Walston's discussion of this topic. I found his arguments lucid, biblical, exegetical, and convincing."
Rev. Kevin Potts, Ph.D. Candidate, Chaplain
"Dr. Walston has thrown a 'big wrench' into my tongues-as-evidence doctrinal gears. I am now working through what I thought was a foundational doctrine that I also thought was settled long ago. This book should be required reading for people on both sides of this issue."
Dr. Denny Nissley, AG minister, Director of Christ in Action Ministries
"Many books and articles have been written in defense of speaking in tongues as the unmistakable, physical evidence of the Baptism in the Holy Spirit. Through his careful and thorough analysis of the Pentecostal texts in the Book of Acts, Dr. Walston is challenging this view. This book is beyond doubt one of the most thought-provoking analyses on this theme I have ever read."
