This book is largely  as it was originally written, although the author's wording has been changed in a few places to improve readability. The layout has been re-formatted for the same reasons. This challenging book is a comprehensive examination of what the Bible teaches as regards signs and gifts and their relevance in the modern world. It refutes the Pentecostal and charismatic view that the gifts of tongues, miracles etc. are present today, and demonstrates that the signs given in the New Testament were temporary, and for the Jew.
