I will state upfront, while my theology is more Holy Spirit driven than many Christians I know, I do not consider myself charismatic. I say this to give my readers some idea of how charismatic based this book is. While there were a few places in this book, especially near the end, that made me uneasy theologically, the vast majority of the book is strictly Biblical and has little that non-charismatics would disagree with.
Because of its attention to Biblical truth, this book really does serve as a practical guide to the gift of prophecy. I especially appreciated the chapters that talked about the characteristics of prophets and prophecy. As someone growing in the gift of prophecy, these chapters really helped me to clarify the things I was hearing and why. They also helped me identify other areas in my life where the gift of prophecy was showing up, but I wasn't recognizing because I didn't know that this gift functioned in those particular ways.
Overall, I recommend this book to anyone interested in the gift of prophecy or who may think they have this gift. While a few of the chapters at the end were not so great, the first three-fourths of the book were so full of incredible information, that it is easy to overlook the flaws of the later chapters.
I was given this book free of charge by the publisher in return for my honest review.
