Experiencing the Spirit
Yet, I was not disappointed in the book. Storms admits the book is geared to those who are theologically sophisticated, yet are yearning and hungry to experience the power of the Holy Spirit. The book focuses on healing and prophecy more than most other charismatic gifts. There is a theological and philosophical side to the book, yet, there is practical help for the reader.
Many people want to experience the power of the Spirit more for their glory, than the glory of Christ, and Storms touches on that in the book, as he explains, sometimes God tells us to be grateful for the gifts you do have, and stop asking for what you do not have. It is implicit throughout the book that Storms believes it is still possible to receive these spiritual gifts.
He explains the greatest way to experience these gifts is through prayer and fasting, yet again, the reminder if you are not receiving what you have prayed and fasted for, then God has given you an answer and humbly be thankful for the gifts you have received.
Overall, this is a very good book for those who are interested in learning more about the charismatic spiritual gifts.
