This review was written for LibraryThing Early Reviewers.
The format of the study with the text in one column and questions and comments in a larger column ensures the reader is constantly directed to the passages under review. I enjoy the inductive study methods that Kay Arthur has made popular again. This guide does a good job in introducing spiritual gifts. It ignores controversial topics by dividing gifts into two general categories, speaking and serving. I would expect a 6-week study to be more in-depth and discuss some of these deeper topics.
The guide does an excellent job in showing the relevance of spiritual gifts today, and I would recommend this study guide for anyone wanting to begin a study on spiritual gifts. ( )

It's hard to review a study that's really more geared to group interaction, but Kay Arthur's studies tend to still be worthwhile to the individual wishing to pursue the topic on his or her own. While there were some elements missing to the story, this is a good starting point for someone new to Spiritual Gifts and looking to gain a basic, Scripture-based understanding of the topic. ( )

Nice introductory Bible study on the topic of Spiritual Gifts, with the usual Kay Arthur style; the studies are brief but the content is not shallow. I always enjoy Arthur's studies and this one was no exception. Accessible, not intimidating, yet substantive. ( )

Kay Arthur's Understanding Spiritual Gifts is a good introduction to the topic. Personally, I was hoping for a more in-depth exploration into the specific gifts, and how to recognize them in ourselves and in each other. However, for anyone new to the topic, this is a great place to start. ( )

In typical, wonderful Kay Arthur fashion, this book takes the Biblical student through several short lessons on how to understand the inherit gifts that God places within each one of us. Though the lesson can be gone through in just 40 minutes as advertised, the questions and applications are so thought-provoking that they can easily run an hour...or two...or three! No matter how much or how little time you have to devote to the study, one thing is guaranteed: your life never has to be the same. Get ready to unlock the power of God's gifts to you! ( )

What Are Spiritual Gifts?
The subject of spiritual gifts can seem complicated: Who has spiritual gifts--""spiritual people" or everybody? What are spiritual gifts anyway?

Understanding Spiritual Gifts takes you straight to God's Word to discover answers from the Gift-Giver Himself. As you dig into Bible passages about God's design for each of us, you'll find out that spiritual gifts aren't complicated--but they are life-changing.

Here you will uncover what spiritual gifts are, where they come from, who has them, how they are received, and how they work within the church. As you study, you will have a new vision for how you can use your God-given gifts to bring hope to your home, your church, and a hurting world.

40 Minutes a Week Could Change Your Life!
The 40-Minute Bible Studies series from the teaching team at Precept Ministries International tackles the topics that matter to you. These inductive study guides, designed to be completed in just six 40-minute lessons with no homework required, help you discover for yourself what God says and how it applies to your life today. With the leader’s notes and Bible passages included right in the book, each self-contained study is a powerful resource for personal growth and small-group discussion.
