What caused a former Dallas Seminary professor to believe that the miraculous gifts of the Holy Spirit are being given today? What convinced someone skeptical about miracles that God still speaks and heals? A dramatic change took place in Jack Deere's life when he took a fresh look at the Scriptures. He discovered that his arguments against miraculous gifts were based more on prejudice and lack of personal experience than on the Bible. As soon as Deere became a seeker instead of a skeptic, the Holy Spirit revealed himself in new and surprising ways. In "Surprised by the Power of the Spirit", Deere provides a strong biblical defense for the Spirit's speaking and healing ministries today. He also describes several reliable cases of people who were miraculously healed or who heard God speak in an unmistakable way. Finally, he gives sound advice for using spiritual gifts in the church. Written in a popular style, with the care of a scholar but the passion of personal experience, this book explores: the real reason Christians do not believe in miraculous gifts, responding to charismatic abuses, whether miracles were meant to be temporary, and why God still heals. -- Dieser Text bezieht sich auf eine andere Ausgabe: Taschenbuch .

Der Verlag über das Buch

If a person were to ask former Dallas Theological Seminary professor Jack Deere about experiencing physical healing by the power of the Spirit eight years ago, he would have been given a stern and disdainful reaction. Along with his other theological counterparts, he held to the teaching that the miraculous gifts of the Holy Spirit had ceased with the last of the Apostles. Deere’s firm conviction that healing, speaking in tongues, and other miracles cannot happen today changed, however, when Jack received a phone call in January 1986 that completely changed his life. Surprised by the Power of the Spirit is a personal account of Jack Deere’s journey away from a skeptical view of spiritual gifts into a fuller experience of the Spirit. Deere explains how he soon discovered that the Bible provides no defense for his view that miraculous gifts have ceased, the position he held as professor of Old Testament. He tells the story of how, after being compelled to study the New Testament again, this time without the interpretational assistance of his personal prejudices, he discovered the weakness of his former opinions. "My study of Scripture convinced me that God would heal and that healing ought to be a significant part of the church’s ministry. I was also convinced that the Bible did not teach that the gifts of the Spirit had passed away," says Deere. Written in a popular style—with the care of a scholar but the passion of personal experience, Surprised by the Power of the Spirit lays a strong biblical foundation for the Spirit’s speaking and healing ministries today. It also includes sound advice for using spiritual gifts in the church, discussion of charismatic and anti-charismatic abuses, reasons why God heals and refrains from healing, and more

5.0 von 5 Sternen A Balanced Defence of Signs and Wonders 14. Juli 2000
I found Jack Deere's book really helpful. It is a balanced defence of the Signs and Wonders movement. I am a Pentecostal, so I don't completely identify with the cessationist aspects of Deere's past, but I have always been openly suspicious of the self styled prophets who suppose to give a word from the Lord. I am also totally within the Sola Scriptura camp. Deere takes seriously concerns about subjectivity, manipulation and false prophecy. He writes in an easy to read narrative style. I highly recommend this book and I intend to read others.

3.0 von 5 Sternen A Scriptural View of Miraculous Gifts 29. Juni 2000
This book provides a strong Biblical case for miraculous gifts both historically and for today. It looks at several passages that are usually fluffed off by cessessionist who commonly rely on the lack of historical events relating to the manifestation of miraculous gifts to write of the gifts. Deere looks at the Bible. No matter what your view is on this subject, this book is worth reading. This book could have been rated higher if Deere would have stayed away from references to other leaders that share his view. Unfortunately, some of these leaders can be called into question on other views that they hold. Deere should have stuck with just looking at the Bible itself instead of aligning himself with these other people. As a result, I can see where other reviewers are classifying his writing as being emotional. But with regard to Scripture, he presents a strong case (unless of course you disagree with him). Overall, it is refreshing to read this book from a well studied individual (i.e. Dallas Theological Seminary) who was educated from a conservative perspective. Usually, the only option for looking at opposing views on this subject is to read the plethera of resources by cessionist or read resources from charismatic perspectives on this issue. I think that there are abuses regarding this issue from both the cessionist and charismatic viewpoints. Our challenge should be to inductively view what Scripture is actually saying and not hold our own denomination, seminary, upbringing..etc in a higher view than Scripture. This book will challenge your view!

5.0 von 5 Sternen Directly addressed my questions 14. Juni 2000
Von David G
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
As one questioning my long-held cessationist views of the Holy Spirit's gifts today, I found Deere's work directly focused on my several questions. I am now enjoying his "Surprised by the Voice of God" sequel.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Well Worth the Read 16. Dezember 1999
We are planting a church in a part of America that contains many churches who teach that miraculous signs and wonders ended with the death of the apostles (aka "cessationist"). I respect their right to believe and teach this doctrine, but I believe the Holy Spirit IS still working through believers in signs and wonders. This book has been a big help in providing a very credible defense (not that the Holy Spirit needs us to defend Him!) of the belief that the Holy Spirit is alive, well and still performing miracles such as healings, and deliverance from demonic oppression. In other words "that God is the Great I AM, not the Great I WAS" (John Wimber).

5.0 von 5 Sternen Fantastic!! 25. September 1999
Von Ein Kunde
A thorough treatment of why God still works miracles in the modern church! Very balanced -- a must-read for any Christian serious about investigating spiritual gifts!
War diese Rezension für Sie hilfreich?
Deere sets forth, in a way only a former skeptic can, the pitfalls and snares that have prevented Christians from living in the miraculous and relvelatory power of the Holy Spirit. He deals with questions of Biblical doctrine and contemporary practice, acknowledging and providing suggestions for dealing with abuses in both charismatic and non-charismatic wings of the church. This is a book that will change your life.

Like Jack, I was raised in a denomination that does not believe that the gifts of the Spirit are still present. As I read Jack's story, it affirmed the experiences I had that lead me to believe that the Holy Spirit is just as active today as in the first century. I gave the book to my mom and now my prayer is that my dad will read it. It will strengthen your faith in what God does for His children through the working of His Spirit.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Dangerous 10. Juni 1999
Von Ein Kunde
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
Deere has no arguments nor scholarship, he only gives emotional appeals to something which is very dangerous and wrong. For responsible Christians there is instead a response to this book: Thomas Edgar's Satisfied by the Promise of the Spirit, a well-resaoned and researched book (and more difficult), truly inspired by the Holy Spirit, not by the power of some deceiving Spirit .
