Doing what Jesus did - a fresh look at the gifts of the Spirit

Doing what Jesus did takes a fresh look at the gifts of the Spirit, suggesting they  are best regarded as a description of the ministry of Jesus, to be welcomed not as feathers in the caps of individuals but as shared resources given to enable the mission and ministry of the church. With lots of illustrations and plenty of real life stories and testimonies, this is a welcome and readable introduction to a topic about which little has been written in recent years. It includes a Bible study for use in small groups.

“The best theologically rigorous study of the gifts of the Spirit that I have read. Especially because in this new book Alison Morgan, from long experience, includes sensible, practical advice on how to get going.” Preb John Collins
