Every-member ministry is biblically normative. The ascending Lord never proposed that his church become a congregation of spectators! Paul writes that when Christ ascended he gave gifts to men that all might participate in ministry. This book concerns those gifts and their use in the local church. The storm of controversy surrounding the so-called 'charismatic gifts' obscures less controversial gifts such as faith and mercy, as well as hospitality. Eric Wright extracts biblical principles about spiritual gifts so non-spectacular gifts are in local church life and encourages us to make fuller use of them. The author's emphasis is on discovery, development and implementation of gifts so that we progress to a strong local church in which the reality of mutual ministry creates a climate of warm devotion to Christ and each other.
