The Bible teaches us that we are to be filled with God's Spirit and that God's presence and grace is manifested among his people as they serve, love, and minister to one another. He addresses the abuse and charlatans that abandon the Word of God, but he also kicks people like me in the butt who want to comfortably ignore the Spirit's work when it gets tricky. In the same way they are happy with gifts of helps and administration but not with gifts of healings or tongues. So he's a continuationist, not a cessationist.

Perhaps we have not seen greater spiritual growth and power simply because we have not sought God with the intensity and commitment fasting represents. This is where I remain unconvinced. Praise God for speakers of truth who will continue to write and preach and teach the truth. Storms talks at length about spiritual gifts in the church especially prophecy and how our church's might be faithful to pursue them and provide opportunities for their use. The gospel changes everything—even the dark, scary aspects of life.

In the last chapter Storms provides some bad arguments for cessationism, some that I heard often growing up. His chapters on prayer and fasting were particularly challenging to me. Sam Storms: I say it because rarely does God grant us anything through any other means.
