Not that you'd need my assurance of sound exegesis when J I Packer and John Wimber write positively on the back cover!! Overall, it is a fairly solid book, and does a good job of tackling some fairly common cessationist arguments. Possibly of most value is the showing that prophecy is more fallible than we think, and should be weighed accordingly.
Obviously, I don't find myself in agreement with every nuance and thought (the most glaring for me are Grudem's views on the apostolic office and his discussion of a "word of knowledge"/"word of wisdom"). However, overall it is a good book that I hope will open more in the body of Christ to this valuable gift of the Spirit.
