Church on Fire
Australian reports and testimonies, 176 pages. (1991, 2010)

Reports and testimonies from leaders in most denominations, describing renewal in Australian churches in the late twentieth century, including two chapters on revival among Australian Aborigines.

“In Australia, the Spirit of God is a work,
renewing, refreshing, invigorating, disturbing…
Church on Fire is the story of that spiritual renewal.
People from many Christian traditions share their experiences, their enthusiasm and their conviction that the Spirit is at work in the chuches, renewing them with life and growth, and calling them to faithful witness in today’s world.”

~ Joint Board of Christian Education, Melbourne
