The people movement to Christ among the original inhabitants (formerly called the "mountain tribes") of Taiwan has been called a "Twentieth Century Miracle." From 1929 to 1960 about 50% of the eleven different groups of Malayo-Polynesian peoples became Protestant Christians "Pentecost of the Hills" utilizes history,politics, sociology, anthropology and missiology to tell their story for the first time. This is not a missionary account--it relates how God raised up local leaders to do the major work of evangelism and nurture.
