God's Tsunami describes a vision about how world-wide revival connects with the land and people of Israel. The foundation of this vision is both historical and biblical and it integrates truth about the strategic value of today's marketplace with Israel and teaching about the kingdom of God. God's Tsunami is a life-message of its author and was first published as a book in 2003 more than one year before the great Indian Ocean tsunami of 2004. The terrible Japanese earthquake and tsunami of 2011 emphasized the urgency of this prophetic and timely message.
The God's Tsunami vision is designed to provide a framework for understanding the power and direction of God's purposes today.
