Spirit Driven Evangelism was written by author Robert M. Myers, the Ministry Leader of the Master’s Touch Outreach Ministry. He begins this book by discussing his call to ministry; the Spirit is his leader and he is merely a vessel through which the Spirit works. The members of the Master’s Touch often remind each other to stay in the Spirit, meaning to remember to allow the Spirit to lead. We must learn to put our personal agenda aside and to allow God to be in total control. He communicates and leads through the Spirit. The author continues by discussing the need for commitment, unity, and prayer. The chapter on working with God was particularly inspiring for it explains how we should be praying. We are constantly asking God to give to us but are we asking for what we need or what we want. Should our prayer be 'give us' or 'change us?'
Robert M. Myers continues by discussing evangelism. It is very difficult for some to witness to others. However, by allowing the Spirit to guide then direct witnessing comes much easier. There are three stages of witnessing: icebreaker, wilderness, and sharing the Kingdom. The icebreaker stage is perhaps the hardest for it is finding a way to make a connection to the other person whom you may never have met. The wilderness is entering the place of the other person's hurt and pain. It is unknown territory and should be the listening stage. The sharing stage is when the Spirit provides you with the direction and wisdom to share the way out of the wilderness.
Robert M. Myers backs his text with scripture references. Spirit Driven Evangelism is a small book with a mere 98 pages, but it is a powerful book and can certainly be an invaluable tool for ministry. This review has only touched on the highlights of the text. There is a sample prayer and suggestions for guiding a new Christian. I highly recommend this book for all church leaders and all willing or called to Evangelism.
