Overview The Revival Continues
This is the book that appeared on best seller lists for 13 consecutive months. It sparked immediate discussion; some reviews were favorable, others critical. Articles for and against the book appeared in many religious magazines.
In the midst of all the controversy, God through His Holy Spirit continues His work on the island of Timor and throughout Indonesia. Now in paperback, LIKE A MIGHTY WIND persists in its claim that the God of the miraculous New Testament has not changed.

This Book is in a Class by Itself Sep 22, 2006
A young Presbyterian Church pre-med student is confronted by charismatic revival in Indonesia in the 1970s. He follows the perceived call of God on his life and goes into missionary work, participating in a series of lessons of how the Spirit moves and dealing with both good and malevolent spiritual issues. This book is colorful on many levels, easy and enjoyable to read, simple and challenging: Do you really believe these supernatural things happen today or no? Walking on water, water turned into wine for Communion, visions, dreams etc. It is a remarkable account of what God can do in areas of this world where conveniences we are accustomed to in the West are lacking. This book polarized people theologically in the 70s and thirty years plus later is still a challenge. My belief is God CAN when necessary, and in Indonesia in the 70s (and more so even today) we need the truly miraculous. But Tari's book shines in that it is Christ-centered and Gospel true, not selling sensationalism but preaching repentance and salvation. It is one of a kind, which makes it (even more so 30 years later) that much more credible.
A storm of blessing Sep 9, 2005
Mel Tari's account of his personal experiences with God in his native Indonesia is well written and inspiring. I read Like a Mighty Wind and Chapter 29 by Jean Coleman in the late 1970s, and have never forgotten either book. Like a Mighty Wind was first published in 1965, and Chapter 29 was first published in 1976. Both books demonstrate that we receive what we believe, and because there are now so many believers worldwide expecting the miraculous, the latest book is MegaShift, which I heartily recommend also.
There are reasons we Dont see miracles and they do! Jul 3, 2005
I thoroughly enjoyed this book. It was the start of a desire in my life for more of GOD in and through my life. The events described are miraculous and very inspiring. The simple raw faith of these believers is what grabs you. The brothers and sisters written about in this book took Jesus at His Word with no doubt that He that saved and filled them would also perform His Word. On arriving in America, the author new something was wrong. His insights on the faith of his country's people and ours are eye openers. I highly recommend this book. GOD bless JB
Highly Recommended for all you "doubters" Sep 9, 2004
I read this book many years ago and it is still as powerful today as it was back then. Mel Tari is a friend of Roland & Heidi Baker's in Mozambique. When I read this book back in 1992 the presence of God filled my room in such a mighty way to confirm that what I was reading was true. You will not be disappointed with this one.
Inspiring drum beating Feb 23, 2002
This book speaks to God's miracles and puts denial in your face. Be prepared to love the book and depending upon your level of belief it may catapult you forward or it may be to direct at some points. Either way, it is an extremely enjoyable quick read!
