Overview

A Rushing Mighty Wind by Angus Buchan

In September 2012, Angus Buchan, author of the best-selling Faith Like Potatoes, was invited to speak at the Feast of Tabernacles, one of the oldest festivals in Jewish history, which today is celebrated in Israel's Ein Gedi desert. There he and his hearers experienced a moving of the Holy Spirit that was widely reported around the world and that impacted his life dramatically.

He recounts the facts of that day in A Rushing Mighty Wind, but then goes on to draw parallels with the first revival in Acts as well as past and present revivals to teach important truths about the Holy Spirit that can dynamically shape our lives today. He also addresses that while revival will bring desperately needed transformation to our cities and nations, it will also stretch and challenge us personally, in ways that we may not anticipate.

A Rushing Mighty Wind will amaze and inspire you to discover a fresh hunger for God's presence and a newfound passion for the Holy Spirit.

When I read a book like A Rushing Mighty Wind, I realize I don’t just want to HEAR about others’ experiences with the Holy Spirit.  I want to experience more of Him in my own life.  This book encourages me to continue to seek Him more deeply and consistently—not to live on yesterday’s “manna” but to expect more and fresh encounters. I received this book from Book Club Network in exchange for my honest review.

A great moment where God showed up that wasn’t wasted. That’s what A Rushing Mighty Wind is about. I got this book thinking it would be a great story about a special miracle, focusing on the events at the Feast of Tabernacles. To begin with, I hadn’t even heard of this special celebration and was fascinated by that! A coming together of believers from every nation in the holy land to honor one of the feasts from great Jewish tradition is almost a miracle in itself. Then to hear of a miraculous mighty wind and rain in the desert boggles the mind. But, that’s not the good part of the book! Don’t get me wrong, that was a fascinating read. And I was a little bothered when the author, Angus Buchan, seemed to change topics only a short way into the book. But, God had a different plan for this book. This book is an intimate look into the relationship between God and a humble servant. Angus so openly shares what God has taught him and how that has changed his life. In such a simple way, Angus challenges and encourages you the reader to get more real in your life with God. I think even a person that didn’t know Jesus as their savior would feel that encouragement to make that a real part of their life. There is no harshness to his manner, just a matter of fact telling of what’s real, regardless what you think. My attitude toward my own devotion time has been improved and reinvigorated. Don’t skimp at the end, either, as he shares history of past revivals. It is such a great picture of how there is nothing new under the sun. Topics people were dealing with in the 1800’s are relevant today. I don’t often mark pages in books, but this book is marked in the margins and pages are dog eared! This is a great read even if you don’t sit and read it straight through. This is an encouraging book that may be better absorbed in chunks. But don’t stop! I can’t wait to read this through a second time to get even more nuggets of wisdom! This book was provided to be for an honest review by The Book Club Network.

A Rushing Mighty Wind By Angus Buchan Publ: Monarch Books c.2014 Angus Buchan Was present for, and a part of, the miraculous outpouring of the Holy Spirit in the En-Gedi Desert of Israel during the Feast of Tabernacles in 2012. In this book he gives a first-hand account of this miracle; then he goes on to tell how this move of God impacted his life and the lives of others. Angus offers the reader a view of the work of the Holy Spirit in his life. He also looks at the first revival in the Upper Room in Acts 2 and subsequent revivals. The effects of these revivals on the lives of those who were part of them are examined to show the necessity of being open to any move of God. Angus encourages the reader to seek a deeper relationship with God and embrace a full day-by-day walk in His presence. Read this book if you want to learn about an amazing move of God in our time and to prepare to be a part of God’s move in these last days. It is well worth the time and effort to read it. I received this book through The Book Club Network for my honest review.

A Rushing, Mighty Wind by Angus Buchan was a great read. I loved the encounter of the revival that he spoke about but I loved the entire book, start to finish because of his candid description of how God used him throughout his life, in different ways throughout different periods but the main theme was “God using him for however long, in whatever capacity.” When the plans are God’s nothing will stop them and when the plan is not something God wants to see fulfilled, nothing will make it happen. When I closed this book I was encouraged, inspired, and ready to obey God in whatever capacity He wanted to use me. I realized I didn’t have to be some famous international speaker, I don’t have to have a fabulous, highly influential job - nope, if God wants to use me right where I am, then I’m ready to be used. This book is great for all ages - everyone who truly has a desire to obey God and serve Him wherever they are in life. I loved it and have already been telling my friends and family about it. I received this book for free from The Book Club Network in exchange for my honest review.

I believe in the Holy Spirit, don't get me wrong, but when I hear someone that is going on and on about receiving the Holy Spirit and then doesn't follow up with what we are supposed to do for other people with that Holy Spirit, it irks me. I thought that was what I was getting into with this book. I started to criticize and had essentially written the book off for another one of those useless Holy Spirit books that just leaves you more selfish than you were before. Thank goodness I kept reading! If you have a more cynical mindset about these things like I do, please give this book a chance. At a certain point, the book became alive to me and the stories he told left me desiring more and more of God. If a book can leave me loving Jesus more than when I started, I will recommend it, no matter how I felt about it to begin with. Aside from the beautiful stories that are within this book, Angus knows how to stir up your faith and usually makes sure to reference scripture and point you towards God's Word. I thought his take on the Holy Spirit was going to go against what Scripture says and that it would push people to become focused on themselves rather than on the people around them. But Angus actually makes the point that unless we can be willing to let go of our agendas and become in tune with the Holy Spirit, we can't help anyone, including ourselves. It was refreshing and inspiring, and I hope many more get to read this book!
