God has always been interested in turning unlikely people into his most
fervent followers. Prostitutes and pagans, tax collectors and
tricksters. The more unlikely, the more it seemed to please God and to
demonstrate his power, might, and mercy. America in the 1960s and 1970s
was full of unlikely people--men and women who had rejected the stuffy
religion of their parents' generation, who didn't follow the rules,
didn't fit in. The perfect setting for the greatest spiritual awakening
of the 20th century.
With passion and purpose, Greg Laurie and
Ellen Vaughn tell the amazing true story of the Jesus Movement, an
extraordinary time of mass revival, renewal, and reconciliation. Setting
fascinating personal stories within the context of one of the most
tumultuous times in modern history, the authors draw important parallels
with our own time of spiritual apathy or outright hostility, offering
hope for the next generation of unlikely believers--and for the next
great American revival.
Those who lived through the Jesus
Revolution will find here an inspiring reminder of the times and people
that shaped their lives and faith. Younger readers will discover a
forgotten part of recent American history and, along with it, a reason
to believe that God is not finished with their generation.
