The Bible teaches us that we are to be filled with God's Spirit and that God's presence and grace is manifested among his people as they serve, love, and minister to one another. Yet some of the gifts that God offers to his people aren't commonly seen in many churches today. Gifts of prophecy, healing, tongues, and other supernatural gifts of God seem to be absent, and many Christians are unsure how to cultivate an atmosphere where God's Spirit can work while remaining committed to the foundational truth of God's Word.

How can Christians pursue and implement the miraculous gifts of the Spirit without falling into fanatical excess and splitting the church in the process? In Practicing the Power, pastor and author Sam Storms offers practical steps to understanding and exercising spiritual gifts in a way that remains grounded in the word and centered in the gospel.

With examples drawn from his forty years of ministry as a pastor and teachers, Storms offers a guidebook that can help pastors, elders, and church members understand what changes are needed to see God move in supernatural power and to guard against excess and abuse of the spiritual gifts. If you long to see God's Spirit move in your church and life, and aren't sure why that isn't happening or where to begin, this book is for you.

Review by Jordan W.
Overall Rating
As a believer who non-vehemently confesses to be a continuationist, I found Practicing the Power: Welcoming the Gifts of the Holy Spirit in Your Life by Sam Storms to be a refreshing book that is, above all, drenched in the Bible. One of the surprisingly refreshing aspects of the book is the fact that, with Storms, there is little debate as to whether or not these particular gifts are still functioning within the church today. For him, as someone who very openly pursues these gifts and experiences them within the context of his local church, there is no debate. From my vantage point, what’s most helpful and encouraging from Storms is the tone with which he writes. It’s a pastoral book, it’s an encouraging book, it’s a challenging book, and it’s an instructive book, and I think any reader who is serious about exposing him/herself to a robustly biblical understanding of the gifts of the Holy Spirit will be helped a great deal. Maybe most importantly, Storms’ commitment to the local church is evident here. I imagine myself coming back to this book repeatedly for reference. (Posted on 3/21/2017)
