An easy to use self-help guide for Christians keen to discover and understand the primary spiritual gift God has given them. This book sheds light on both the primary and formational function of spiritual gifts and the time that should be allocated to each.
Other activities include opportunities to discern spiritual passion, whether a person is people focused or goal orientated and how they best operate in developing and supporting ministries as either visionary, enabler or sustainer. A must read for anyone seeking to fulfill their spiritual potential within and outside of church.
The author, Bob Eckhard, is an ordained minister in the Church of England. He has a degree in Contextual Theology and a Masters in Education. Bob explains why he wrote the book: “Following numerous requests from clergy colleagues to provide training on spiritual gifts to their members, I soon realised I was facing an impossible task as there was not enough time in the week to get around all those that were asking for my help. Initially reluctant to write a book from scratch, I researched what other books were available. Finding that the majority of them did not take the form of a self-help guide, nor made the correlation between primary and formational gifts, I decided to write it myself. Hence, how ‘Know your Spiritual Gifts’ came into being”.
