About "Fire in the Outback"
God took the outcasts - rejected and despised Australian Aborigines - and transformed whole communities in a few days, first on an island in north Australia and later across the north, centre and west of Australia. This fire of revival transformed health, hygiene, attitude to work and education, and brought true reconciliation and love between families, clans and tribes that had been fighting for many generations.Fire in the Outback is the Aborigines' own stories of what happened. It is a very frank, exciting and balanced presentation that challenges our own lives as it looks at the roots, background and results of a revival that points the way for the future.This is the story of real community transformation that produced many of the next generation of indigenous leaders and prepared the way for Australia's first peoples to take their God-given role in real leadership in one of the most multicultural nations on earth.

This is a very useful and powerful book on how a revival amongst aborigines in Elcho Island spread to Central Desert of WA and Kimberley. It shows how translation of Bible into aboriginal language and Spirit filled aboriginal preachers were used by God to transform intractable social problems and lives in aborigines. It is very inspiring and well worth getting for any basic Christian interested in similar changes in their area. There are many helpful lessons and Scriptures to follow. I am glad it has been reprinted in ebook. Aboriginals are spiritual people. The notes at the back are very helpful. Citations are thorough. It handles well controversy with Spiritual gifts and is well-balanced in its coverage of events.
