    I Also Recommend:

    A mind-griping, nonfictional tale of an pacific island prophesy being fulfilled by an ordinary John.

    The reasons behind buying this book was to learn more about the cargo cults of Vanuatu, but more specifically within Vanuatu- the island of Tanna. What I found was that I learned a lot more about the author and his story than the mysterious prophesy of the island. However, it was a great read. I always enjoy learning about people and their own personal journeys and this was a very interesting chain of events that took place. I would recommend this book for anyone interested in learning more about the cults of the pacific islands, Youth With A Mission, evangelical missions, and Christianity. If someone is looking for a more detailed book about the islands, as far as the culture, politics, and the other demographics, I would suggest looking for another book.
