Christian author Gerhardt Smook pens an unconventional, enlightening and controversial volume that revolves around the creative purpose of humanity to rule over the earth in Spirit Driven Rulers. This book shares the author’s own perspectives on the present issues of faith and religion, and how God’s people are in the employ of Jesus to establish God’s kingdom on earth. It also expresses the prevalent and pressing predicaments that Christianity is now facing that are surprisingly similar to what Jesus had to face during His earthly ministry.

Following his attempted sinister coup in heaven, Satan, together with his minions, were cast onto the earth. He, who considered himself equal to God and qualified to rule the universe, suddenly found his domain reduced to one small planet in the vast universe. To add insult to injury, God fashioned an insignificant creature from the dust of Satan’s turf with the instruction to rule over the earth.

This book focuses on man’s authority to rule in the spiritual realm and the immeasurable spiritual power available to him to accomplish his creative purpose in the presence of his enemies.

Spirit Driven Rulers is an eye-opener that will help readers to realize the importance of living in the unlimited power of the Spirit in order to successfully defeat Satan in life. It is an expressive book that awakens readers to the excitement of a Spirit-driven life. This compelling volume evokes the true magnitude of God’s power and love seriously, delicately and delightfully and exposes some of the very important everyday issues in a profound way.
