Mystics’ Style of Evangelism is to Connect People to God Intimately — A Quote by Elaine Heath in “The Mystic Way of Evangelism”

“To be holy is to be set aside exclusively for God’s purposes… The great exemplars of holiness — the Christian mystics — are without exception the first and best teachers of the theory and practice of evangelism. Their contemplative vision of the love of God and the redemptive purposes of God in the world shatter our programmatic and market-driven assumptions about evangelism. Their passionate surrender to Christ exposes imperialistic, exploitive, and manipulative versions of evangelism, and highlights the falsity of accusations that evangelism is just one more way the church is in collusion with the world.”
