I recently heard a preacher say there are 19 gifts of the Spirit. That specific number seems to derive from this book by Leslie Flynn. Most lists, including even those that reference this book, tend to list 16 gifts (example), but I did find one list with 21 gifts. I was unable to locate Flynn's list, however. What are the 19 gifts, as defined by Flynn?
