Christianity's Surge in Indonesia

Christian Revolution in Indonesia: Religion Spreads - TIME
Instead, in the heart of the world's most populous Muslim-majority nation, Christians held a Pentecostal revival, complete with faith healing and speaking in tongues. As a tropical downpour fell, believers' tears mixed with rain — and a line of sick and disabled took to the stage to claim they had been cured by a God they, like Indonesian Muslims, call Allah.

Comments: We could (and some do) get bent out of shape at Christians calling our Christian God Allah. Technically there is a huge difference. But I wonder if we would be missing the forest for the trees? However we see it, the Indonesian Christian surge seems significant.
