Author Mike Mellor
Mike Mellor’s aim in this book is twofold: Firstly that we will be convinced that the Holy Spirit is the ‘Director’ of all evangelism and mission, enrolling, equipping and energizing those who have been found and changed by him. Secondly, that each one of us might experience the thrill of being used by the Holy Spirit in this glorious pursuit as we reach out with the gospel—whether across the street or across the globe—knowing the Spirit’s power and presence that Jesus promised to those who go in his name. Mike writes, ‘My prayer is that our hearts may be ignited with the holy flame which has burned intensely in the hearts of Christ-possessed men and women through the ages.’
I don’t suggest you read this book unless you want the Holy Spirit to move you into action… pray your way through this powerful book rather than just read it.
George Verwer Founder of Operation Mobilization and former Director
It is one of those rare books with a truly transforming message. I dare you to read it without being not only shaken but stirred.
John Blanchard, Evangelist, Author and Apologist
If you have a passion to share your faith, or are somewhat reluctant to engage in evangelism, I recommend this important book…

A necessary and contemporary book. All I can do is to urge you to buy and read the book. Only then will you endorse what I am saying and benefit from it!

Theologically robust, scripturally supported, thoroughly practical, peppered with quotable quotations and personal testimony, this is a page-turner, and a must-read for every believer.
Steven Green, UK Director of Mobilisation and Church Relations for ReachAcross: Helping Muslims Follow Jesus
This book has a wonderful mix of personal anecdotes, stories from church history and, of course, Biblical examples which together with solid teaching on the work of the Holy Spirit will serve to enthuse, encourage and equip us for the great task of evangelism.

…a book packed with numerous anecdotes, historical references, theological reflections and interleaved with his own thrilling story…Your heart will be warmed, your mind challenged and your zeal stirred.

Mike writes fast and you find yourself racing along turning the pages; except that its contents are so serious that you have to make yourself stop, think, and consider the force of truth you are reading.
