Like a modern day Saul of Tarsus, Mark Rutland was literally struck down in his passionate pursuit of religious advancement. The Holy Spirit destroyed his ambitious plans and raised up a missionary-evangelist to this generation. When the Holy Spirit filled Mark Rutland, he had never attended a Pentecostal worship service. He writes, "the first person I ever heard speak in tongues was me... out poured a heavenly language that astonished me."
From that Damascus road experience in 1975, Rutland recounts his sometimes funny, sometimes bizarre experiences on every inhabited continent of the globe. He shares the sheer joy of the journey with such transparency that you will see yourself and your world with fresh eyes. You will thrill to realize that the Master also beckons you... "Launch out into the Deep...."
