Foundational Teaching from a Charismatic Healing Minister and a Catholic Scholar
International healing minister Randy Clark teams up with Mary Healy, a respected Catholic scholar, to show not only that the gifts of the Spirit still exist today, but that they are not optional; they are the necessary tools God has given for both building his Church and spreading the Gospel.
With wisdom and practical insight, Clark and Healy walk you through biblical texts, dispel misconceptions, and show that there is an endless variety of gifts. They also show how the gifts are not just for a select few, but distributed freely by the Holy Spirit among believers. After laying this foundation, the authors reveal how you can activate the gifts in your own life and use them to benefit others. In this hurting world, you can give people more than just a message–you can help usher them into an encounter with God.
This book was a good reminder of the gifts of the Spirit. It honestly wasn’t new information for me but I did find it interesting.
What I found most interesting was that fact that the Catholic church believes in these gifts. I had no idea. I think a lot of us (maybe I should just speak for myself) have misconceptions and even prejudices toward the Catholic church. One of the authors is Catholic, I loved reading her stories of healing and miracles and I felt the divide that had been created by years of untruth begin to close.
This book wasn’t what I was expecting but like I said, I did like it and it was a great reminder of the power that is available to to us all.
