Product Description

From the Back Cover

What caused a former Dallas Seminary professor to believe that the miraculous gifts of the Holy Spirit are being given today? What convinced someone skeptical about miracles that God still speaks and heals? A dramatic change took place in Jack Deere's life when he took a fresh look at the Scriptures. He discovered that his arguments against miraculous gifts were based more on prejudice and lack of personal experience than on the Bible. As soon as Deere became a seeker instead of a skeptic, the Holy Spirit revealed himself in new and surprising ways. In Surprised by the Power of the Spirit, Deere provides a strong biblical defense for the Spirit's speaking and healing ministries today. He also describes several reliable cases of people who were miraculously healed or who heard God speak in an unmistakable way. Finally, he gives sound advice for using spiritual gifts in the church. Written in a popular style, with the care of a scholar but the passion of personal experience, this book explores: the real reason Christians do not believe in miraculous gifts, responding to charismatic abuses, whether miracles were meant to be temporary, and why God still heals.

About the Author

Jack Deere, formerly an associate professor of Old Testament at Dallas Theological Seminary, is a writer and lecturer who speaks throughout the world on the gifts of the Holy Spirit. He is the author of the best-selling book, Surprised by the Power of the Spirit.

It's a magnificent book about the Holy Spirit. God used his book to open my eyes to the work of the Holy Spirit to which I was blind to for many years. I had to really repent of quenching the Holy Spirit. I think I learnt from this book more about the Holy Spirit than form any other book I read. Read this book and pray that God would open your eyes to the work of the third person of Trinity. Your life will never be the same. I highly recommend it!

If you believe God no longer heals, or gifts his people with the gifts of the Holy Spirit, and no longer speaks to His people, and that all these went out with the apostles, then you are in the same boat that former "cessationist" reformed thelogian Jack Deere was in until the early 1990s when God turned his experience and then his theology the right way up. This book is both a very interesting auto-biography of change and a tightly argued theology of the ongoing powerful activity of the Holy Spirit. It will not leave you indifferent.

I quite enjoyed this book as it clearly explained what and why many charistmatics believe.

However, you may not agree with a lot of it.- it depends on your POV.

There are though, some interesting and profitable applications to some of the things that Deere says.

Very good book, easy to understand and full of theological truths, excellent argument to support the continuist view. And also reveal how the cessationist doctrine is not grounded in scripture.

a good book for those of us that believe none of gifts of the Spirit have not ceased,but are still active in the church today, and the reason for us believing this is because we believe the bible.

JD was an Old Testament scholar who worked in one of the most conservative/reformed theological schools. It's therefore a must read book especially to those who think extraordinary gifts from the Spirit have ceased. JD proves in the Bible that they haven't. It's an honest approach to the Word of God and it worth a reading.

While the book did not show signs of wear it was quite discoloured (ie, yellowed) so looks to be quite an old book. However I am happy enough with it.
