A biblical study of spiritual gifts and the Holy Spirit

Few issues in evangelicalism are as thorny or as enduring as the issue of spiritual gifts. Did miraculous signs and wonders, such as speaking in tongues, cease with the closing of the canon? Or does God bestow such gifts on his people today? What can we expect once we are indwelled by the Holy Spirit? Are baptism by water and baptism by the Holy Spirit separate events?

Eschewing extremes, Bible scholar D. A. Carson explores the controversial subject of the role of the Holy Spirit in the life of a believer and in the life of the church. Unpacking 1 Corinthians 12-14, as well as touching on relevant passages in Acts, Carson faithfully follows the evidence of the text and offers an honest look at the strengths and weaknesses of different viewpoints.
