“Therefore, my brethren, desire earnestly to prophesy…” (1 Cor. 14:39)
Was Paul addressing only the Corinthian Christians, or does his admonition hold true for the church today? Does the voice of God speak directly and specifically to this generation?
With a resounding yes, longtime pastor and international speaker Ernest B. Gentile shows that the apostles intended prophecy to continue as a vital function in the ongoing development of the church. In twenty-three carefully laid out chapters, Your Sons and Daughters Shall Prophesy presents the scriptural background and theoretical concepts behind prophecy, interspersed with personal observations, firsthand accounts, and practical suggestions.
This thorough yet readable study on prophecy skillfully bridges the gap between scholarly analysis and popular presentation. Each chapter concludes with a page of insightful quotations from popular writers and pastoral leaders. Teachers and students, as well as anyone with an interest in prophecy, will find all the information they need to explore this crucial and sometimes controversial subject.
“Ernest writes out of living experience that includes sound biblical scholarship and practical issues of the prophetic in the local church.”

“I know of no one more qualified to write what I would describe as the first textbook on the subject…A book that anyone who wants to be thoroughly informed about prophetic ministry today should read.
