From Head-hunters to Church Planters: An Amazing Spiritual Revival in Nagaland
There is a tendency today to associate 'revival' and miracles with Charismatic churches, but there were none of those in Nagaland when God first brought revival there. These powerful and life-changing visitations came to orderly, conservative Baptist Congregations. As a result, Nagas found their true dignity not in themselves, their ethnic roots, their head-hunting or in the defence of their homeland, but they discovered it in the person and life of Jesus Christ, the Living and one true God. This is a moving story of bravery and betrayal, suffering, persecution, supernatural intervention and subsequent human weakness.
