Based on a beloved college level ministry class, "You have Spiritual Gifts (And It's Time You Use them) with foreword by Jeff Leake, begins by answering some of the biggest questions people have like "Who is the Holy Spirit?"; "Why does He give us these gifts anyway?" "What are my spiritual gifts?"; and "What is my calling/ what does God want me to do with my life?"
The book gives detailed, biblical explanation supported by real-world examples of spiritual gifts in action. Vince brings clarity to gifts like "Word of Wisdom" and "Word of Knowledge" (and how they are different). He explains Healing, Tongues, Discernment, and there is a whole chapter on Prophecy and it's purpose.
As it teaches, it entertains with lots of compelling stories Vince has collected over thirty years and a unique brand of humor and observation. The book is written directly to the readers, from the point of view of a personal letter rather than an instruction manual.
But the book still challenges you to fully embrace the ultimate purpose of Spiritual Gifts, and to bring God glory by adopting this important perspective. Each chapter ends with "Food For Thought" questions that make it perfect for a personal devotional or to generate discussion with a small group of friends.
The pinnacle of the book are the Spiritual Gift and Calling assessments. "You Have Spiritual Gifts (And It's Time You Use Them)" contains the most comprehensive Spiritual Gift assessment you'll find anywhere. Together with the personal "Calling" assessment, you will finish with a much more clear understanding of your spiritual identity and what type of people you might best work with. Though written for all to enjoy, pastors and staff leaders can use this book to build better teams that are based on true spiritual gifting and identity rather than the latest, trendy 'personality profile.'
In many ways, "You Have Spiritual Gifts (And It's Time You Use Them)" is merely a beginning- the fire starter you need to discover and embrace who you really are at the core of your being and as God made you. And the truth and insight you gain as a result of reading this book could have a tangible effect on your relationship with God and others for the rest of your life!
